    I applied online - interviewed at A Place for Mom.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    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.

    I applied online - interviewed at A Place for Mom.

    Interview Details

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

    Senior Family Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at A Place for Mom in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at A Place for Mom in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    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.

    There is zero negotiation regardless of your experieince in sales, all new EA's are offered the same $1700 per month DRAW against COMMISSION. You're told that it will take upwards of 3-6 months to get out of teh draw, but having spoken with several EA's who have one or more years tenure, this is not the case.
