Marketing Representative Interview

Marketing Representative
Wichita Falls, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Home Instead in April 2011.

Interview Details – The 1:1 interview was the owner of the franchise and she seemed very friendly. Asked general questions about my resume. Why did you leave this job? What interests you most about the position? etc... Left the interview feeling very positive and was told that I would be contacted the next day (specifically before 12pm) to set up a second interview. I never heard from the lady again. I had to email her twice and call once to finally get a response that she had hired someone else. I was very displeased with the very unprofessional behavior of this business and the actual owner of the business. I would not recommend working for this company.

Non-medical Caregiver Interview

Non-medical Caregiver
Fredericksbrg, VA

I applied in-person and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Home Instead in July 2010.

Interview Details – I went into the office and filled out the application and was told I would be called for an interview w/in 2 weeks. I called twice the second week, again the third week, and sent an email the forth week to finally get an interview. The personnel manager said she would let me know early the next week. I have called and emailed but 4 weeks later, I have heard nothing. Very unprofessional.

Director, International Interview

Director, International

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Home Instead.

Interview Details – I applied at HomeInstead because we used their services for my grandfather and each and every interaction with the HomeInstead service and their employees was tremendous. In short, I was sold on the company well before I applied.

I waited until the right opportunity opened up at HomeInstead. Ultimately, the head of HR actually suggested that I post for the position and she conducted the initial interview. It was a dialogue about the position, the HomeInstead mission, and her experience/background. She committed to scheduling additional interviews with the senior managers with whom I would be working with and/or supporting. I never heard from her again despite several calls and emails.
