Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate any even though the salary was a lot less than husband had made in the past, it was about what I was making on job I gave up.

Co-Manager Interview

Co-Manager
Denver, CO

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in August 2012.

Interview Details – This position and company appeared positive at first and my wife and I had a very good first phone interview. We became excited about the position available in a location that was acceptable to us. We were also told we may be expected to move within that region as needed which was also acceptable. We were flown to Denver, CO at company expense (except $60 bag fees at the airport). We did not meet with the Senior Recruiter as promised. We were told he actually had all the pertinent information about the job and locations that may be available. We were also then told that the location we preferred was not available and most of the positions in that region were filled. This fact was a shock but was still acceptable to us since we were impressed with the Denver facility and with what we were told of a "day in the life" of a co-manager team. The interview questions were short and not very in-depth to allow us demonstrate our relevant experience or skill sets. We were told the purpose of that interview was to be a negative sale to reveal the negative aspects of the job. We appreciated that and were told we would have a third interview with the Senior Recruiter in a few days. We were told to review Glassdoor.com and and to let the person interviewing us know if we were still interested. We sent that email on the way home from Denver and confirmed we were still interested. We never got a response and did not hear anything for a week until we phoned the person who had arranged our travel arrangements. Within 5 minutes we received a "form" email that other candidates were more qualified and we had not been selected.
We do not know how anyone could have made that decision. Our employers were not contacted and neither were our references. If they made the decision based upon our resumes and the brief interview we had, why did they spend the money to fly us to Denver with an overnight stay and rental car. Very odd behavior for what otherwise appeared to be a professional company. After having been treated this way, I would caution anyone considering employment with this company. I have interviewed with dozens of companies over the years and been recruited by many large corporations and have hired literally hundreds of people in my career. I have never had this disjointed an experience and would never invest my time and my company's expense with so little follow through and so much disrespect for a potential candidate.

Interview Question – This was the issue, in the second interview. There were no tough questions at all that could not be answered by viewing our resumes. We were not given any opportunity to ask specific questions about a particular location or even demonstrate how good a fit we could be for the position.   Answer Question

Co-Manager Interview

Co-Manager

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Holiday Retirement.

Interview Details – We applied on line and were contacted within 24 hours. We scheduled a phone interview which was followed up approximately a week later with a face to face interview. The contacts were professional and travel arrangements for the face to face interview were handled very expediently. It does seem that you get "stuck" within a region very quickly vs. recruiters sharing information about candidates and possibly placing them in regions that could save the company on moving costs.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected question. The people that interviewed us really gave us more information about the position and what to expect vs. asking questions of us.   Answer Question

Co-Manager Interview

Co-Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in January 2012.

Interview Details – First telephone interview with a recruiter was very positive. The pay and benefits sounded too good to be true so we did some research and found that the majority of the reviews from past/present employees were very negative. We decided to ask about it at the interview. We arrived about 20 minutes early and the interviewer arrived about 10 mins. late. She was very nice and answered our questions sort of. She explained that most of the complaints were because the job wasn't what people expected. That would seem reasonable if there were only a few complaints but there are so many and with the good pay and benefits why are there so many openings. If the job wasn't what people expected why don't they explain it better before they hire someone? We came out of the interview feeling pretty good although we weren't 100% convinced we had been given the whole truth about the job description. Our interview was on a Tuesday and she said she would call us on Friday. That was 4 weeks ago - still no call. We are happy now that we haven't gotten a call because we probably would have taken the job if it was offered.

Interview Question – How did you turn a negative into a positive.   Answer Question

Co-Manager Interview

Co-Manager

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in May 2011.

Interview Details – met with recruiter lots of information given to us regarding company and position of co-manager, we felt properly informed. Took about 1 1/2 hours felt good and honest, backgrounds exchanged and reality of job was discussed. After meeting with recruiter we met with gentleman who would be our Regional Manager, great guy, hit it off immediately. Made us feel very comfortable and thought it was a good fit and a good move for us as jobs are few are far between for very talented 50 plus educated people. We hoped we'd hear back with an offer

Interview Question – What do people misperceive about you when they first meet you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, we took what was offered as far as money, our Reg. Mgr asked us to take a far away location from where we were hoping but we've moved around a lot in our lives and we were up for the challenge. our RM made us feel good about it and that we were doing a favor for him. We were honest and he was also.
