Marketing Director Interview

Marketing Director

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Aegis Living.

Interview Details – Spoke to lots of different people and had to wait quite a bit before any contact as to what was the next step. Final interview process included speaking to five people in one day. Overall a process in which I had to push myself and grow.

General Manager Interview

General Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Aegis Living in March 2013.

Interview Details – Fantastic. I was contacted by a recruiter and had two telephone interviews prior to being flown to Seattle for a face to face, including time spent with the founder of the company. I met with no less than 5 Corporate officers as well as two Human Resource Managers.
The process was a bit drawn out but that was due to my desire to visit two of the
Aegis communities. The training was fantastic as well. I was trained in all aspects of the business and in multiple communities so as to get a great overall view .

Interview Question – Who do you credit for you being the person you are today and why?   Answer Question

Director Interview

Director
Seattle, WA

I applied online - interviewed at Aegis Living in November 2012.

Interview Details – long 5 months. Disappointment: being sent for interviews out of state & not getting reimbursed for expenses incurred as promised.Diligent companies follow up with candidates or send a regret out of respect for their time in their job search. you are left hanging with Aegis!

Interview Question – Most difficult question was being asked if I was willing to relocate close to a potential residence and being told that all directors are within 10 minutes of their appointment communities. (This is not the case by the way). There are directors who I met during the interviews who actually live an hour drive away from their appointed communities.
Another confusing thing was being offered a position less of the position applied and interviewed for all along. It was very confusing. I had to put a pause when I "smelled a rat".
  View Answer

Reason for Declining – I was offered a a position different than what I applied and very informally via telephone during one of my final "interviews"; It was unethical considering they had already interviewed me several times. I was also being offered the position on conditions of moving, where I am a drive away and had only opted to accept relocation out of town. It was a long and confusing process but a very ironically enlightning one.

Executive Director Interview

Executive Director
Redmond, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Aegis Living.

Interview Details – Group interview. 3 step process, final interview was with the CEO. The interview was something that you do not see in a typical interview. Skills are discovered through the resume review process so the whole process is very much focused on cultural fit. There is a large emphasis on how you are going to work with the people around you not so much how you are going to change the community you go into.

Interview Question – What place would you like to live in when you require this level of care.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very simple
