    I applied online – interviewed at A Place for Mom.

    Interview

    I personally did not find the process difficult but I was hired years ago. I knew on the vary first call with the recruiter that I was going to get the offer. I think it's a little different now. I believe there are several calls including with management and now they do video interviews where before it was all phone.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at A Place for Mom (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online and had a pleasant 30 minute phone interview in which I was asked about my past work experience and was told a little bit about the position. Was brought in the following week for an in-person interview. One look at the interviewer and I knew I wasn't getting the job. I ended up interviewing with a "bro" who decided to take it upon himself to ask a bunch of challenge "game theory" questions that had nothing to do with the position at hand. Was probably looking to hire a woman or another bro like himself. Not at all what I was expecting.

    Interview

    The interview process was very casual. They called me and said they needed one more person for the training class the next day, and that they wanted to interview me that day. I said I couldn't make it in person but asked I could do a phone interview. They actually agreed and gave me a short, softball type interview for the position and I was told I was hired immediately after the interview.

    Interview

    HR generally does a phone interview or two, followed usually by an in-person interview at the corporate offices. The phone interview and follow-up in person interviews are the usual interview questions you would be asked in a call-center setting, especially one dealing with senior related topics. Most of the interview questions are pretty generic scenario-related.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask the usual generic 'what if'' scenario questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR called over the phone and then sent acceptance letter by email that needed to be signed and returend. Somewhat formal.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at A Place for Mom (South Bend, IN) in August 2009.

    Interview

    My interviewer set the phone appt and told me to be ready to ask any questions up front.
    I asked several questions and was immediately told by the interviewer "It doesn't sound like you are convinced that this is the job/co for you. Do some more research and call me back if you decide that we are what you are looking for"

    What? Before I even interview, I must decide that this 100% commission job is for me? I thought the interview process was for BOTH the employer and employee to learn more about each other.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at A Place for Mom (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2008.

    Interview

    Two Phone Interviews. The first was with an HR person, and the second was with a member of field management.
    The HR person gave me inaccurate salary information.
    The 2nd person didn't give me much info at all. She gave me a little knowledge about the industry, a 50 thousand foot view about the duties of the job, and was very guarded about details.
    That was it. I was hired and scheduled for training in Seattle.
    The training was 4 or 5 days, and was really just a skeleton of information which would need to be filled in OJT/under fire.
    There were several weeks of conference calls with a teacher and the class which helped.
