I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aegis Living (Redmond, WA) in April 2015.
Interview process was an initial phone screen followed by two on site interviews. First interview I met with the team and supervisor. Second interview was with the VP of Accounting. Everything was going fine until they went radio silent for over two weeks following our second interview. "We'll let you know soon" was the last I heard. This after already spending the previous 3-4 weeks interviewing? I have no problem with you choosing another candidate but it's generally polite to inform someone of a decline if they've committed that much time to your "hiring process".

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Aegis Living (Redmond, WA) in April 2015.
This is a third interview for a leadership position with Aegis. I met with VP level and spent nearly 75 minutes. The contact was very thorough in explaining the purpose of the role and how it interacted with residents, other staff and the training / mentoring process. Pleasant and informative.
- The VP encouraged me to ask any and all questions. The firm wants to ensure you are a culture and personality fit. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aegis Living (Issaquah, WA) in November 2013.
I was called for an interview. When I arrived there were many other candidates there. It was a group interview , which I found very uncomfortable. There was no follow up as far as notification that they had hired somebody else.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Aegis Living (Corte Madera, CA) in September 2013.
Invited to an open house and interview for Director of Operations. Accepted and went to interview only to find it was a group interview with 7 other candidates. I was totally surprised and would not have gone had I known it was a group interview. I should have been told. And who does group interviews anyways? They even break you into smaller groups to do a group exercise with other applicants. Really bizarre. Turned me off.
- At end of group interview they ask you which candidate in the group you would pick for job. Huh? Really? Weirdest interview process I have been through. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Aegis Living in November 2011.
Had a casual 1:1 with the Executive Director that was very comfortable and informative. She was relatively new to her position and seemed committed and intelligent. The second interview with a Corporate staff member was somewhat informal/formal 1:1. The corporate person wasn't sure where we would conduct the interview, commented on my professional appearence while her own was somewhat casual, stated she was straying from the formal interview process and told me a great deal about her meteoric rise in the company. I assume she was illustrating the opportunities available with Aegis. She commented on her work habits which appeared to be 12 hour days with the occasional longer day and wanted to know if I was able to commit to the demands of the job as she put it. I asked for an organizational chart as it related to the position I was interviewing for and she briefly outlined it on the back of the job description that she provided me. At the end of the interview I had more questions that seemed appropriate to ask but 1 hour had already gone by so I refrained. I was given a tour of the residence. The residence was pleasant and well cared for. At the end of the day I think I could have worked well with the ED but had questions about "Corporate". I was not asked back for a second interview so I assume Corporate had questions about me as well.

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aegis Living in October 2011.
The initial communication from the company for the interview was unprofessional; as the call was iniuated during the dinner hour at 1810. The request for the interview was within a few days. I was informed that the initial contact would be an introduction to company culture and a tour of the faciltiy. I was surprised, that the company culture was 'not' introduced; and a tour of the facility did not occur! What did occur was a group interview with 14 candidates and one company manager. Personally and professionally I was insulted. The interveiw questions were unprofessional; and politically unacceptable. Candidates utilized the time by explaining how many children they had, why they moved to this location, and whom employeed their spouses! I am still shocked by this experience! Baiscally what the interview involved was a "look over" by the manager--ugh :>( Upon completion of the first meeting everyone was informed that each of us would be contacted for a 1:1 within a week. I thought that perhaps that would involved a professional interaction; and I was willing to give them a second chance. Well it has been three weeks now--and communication from AegisLiving has been null. Given the initial unprofessional contact and interaction this company leaves the impression it would not being able to offer a position of growth; but 'just a job' where you would be expected to over extend yourself! As a human service professional I am surprised that this company provides services for memory impaired clients.
