Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Holiday Retirement in November 2012.

Interview Details

Interviewed over phone for 3 minutes. Was flown in to So. Carolina for interview that lasted approximately 45 minutes.

No negotiating. The company treats you right up front, they spend a lot of money flying you from place to place and on training you but once that's over, they forget that you are a person with "human" needs.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Holiday Retirement in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was straight forward. We submitted our resumes online and were in touch shortly with a staffing agent. Our phone interviews went well. We took the initiative to visit a couple of facilities in the area and the managers there gave us a good referral. We were offered positions in Lethbridge Alberta, expecting to make the move there in less than a month.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    We called the manager in Lethbridge to introduce ourselves and she was unaware they had hired us, as she had expected someone else. Also, the current co-manager couple did NOT know they were being replaced. This was a big red flag for us, as this could be us getting the rug pulled out from under us. We expressed our concern to our hiring manager via email and never heard anything back. We decided to not pursue this, given these events, and the outstanding amount of bad reviews of the company so far.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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
