Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living in August 2012.

Interview Details – I applied on the website and within a few weeks I got an email from HR and set up an in person interview with someone in the marketing department. The interview was not too difficult, very basic background questions and questions pertinent to my marketing experience. The woman interviewing me was knowledgeable and asked some tough questions but nothing I couldn't answer confidently since I was qualified for the job.

Interview Question – No difficult questions but I did take a 'test' based on media buying. It wasn't difficult and wouldn't be for anyone who had any experience in media buying.   Answer Question

Sales Counselor Interview

Sales Counselor

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

Interview Details – After submitting your application if they are interested you will be asked to visit with the immediate management of the community with the available opportunity. Next you will typically visit with the mid and then senior management. If they are looking to move forward you will take your drug test and then wait for the final offer.

Interview Question – Why do you believe you would be successful with dealing with seniors? (obvious but it needs to make good sense and not be generic)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Know the market and know your worth, but be willing to build up to where you want to be by meeting management half way.

Reason for Declining – Suppose to be an Assisted Living, but more like a nursing home. Very unprofessional.You get no breaks even after doing a double. They work short all the time and treat employees very disrespectful like Slaves. I would not recommend anyone to work there unless you don't mind being treated very disrespectful.
