I had my first interview with McNabb in December of 1991, three weeks before I graduated from UT. The interviewing process was much different than it is today. Back then, you had an interview with who was hiring for the position. You were then called back for an “all day” interview. The interviews were with all the Program Directors and an hour lunch with the lead therapist. I also interviewed with the Vice President. The afternoon was filled with interviews from different staff throughout the Center.
When I came to McNabb there was the Adult Center at Cherokee Trail and one story of the Children’s Center. It was also pre-TennCare at the time. We did not have computers, voicemail or cell phones. We got our telephone messages in our boxes. If we wanted to send out an “all staff” we made copies and put them in everyone’s mailboxes. We had beepers and carried around a bag of quarters for the payphones to return the pages. How times have changed! It is so amazing of how we have grown in my 31 years at the Center.
