    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Miami, FL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Long process with several interviews and personality quiz. Started with recruiter then to community directors and finally to regional. Personality quiz was standard but they did not review the results with me. I had a minor noise violation that was dismissed and recruiter made me get a letter stating it was dropped since I had stated i had no convictions. (it showed up on my background check) Got the feeling they enjoyed having me jump through hoops.
