    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager. In person interview with 4 individuals at their office. Overall it was really disorganized and left a bad impression on me. The hiring manager lacked personality and energy. It made me feel like working there would be a miserable experience. There was no introductions as to why I was interviewing with individuals, what the daily,weekly, or monthly responsibilities were. They spent more time over analyzing my personality test scores which in my opinion were way off from reality.

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt the interview was just bad. They seemed like they didn't know what questions to ask, they were disorganized, and uninformative. I interviewed with four people but no one told me why I was talking to them or what interaction I would have with them on a daily basis.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    On campus interview followed by a second interview at the corporate office. The on campus interview was a short 1 on 1 with the director of the department. It lasted about 30 minutes and was just an easy conversation about my background. I was invited back for a second interview a few days later. The 2nd round of interviews consisted of a panel interview with several senior staff and managers lasting about an hour and then a 30 minute interview with the vice president of the department

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (McMinnville, OR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very friendly & welcoming. This facility had state there and HR was unable to be at interview. The Activities Director handled well. It was a short one on one interview with 5 questions. She then gave me a tour of the facility and introduced me to other staff and residents. The Activities director was asked by two other management gals if she thought the interview went well and offered to complete my background check right then and bypass 2nd interview. After completing background, was taking back to activity director office where she said hr would contact me for 2nd meeting to complete new hire paperwork... I am super excited but also unsure I think that means I got position but no official word "your hired". Hoping to get that second call to come complete paperwork like it was explained.

    Interview Questions

    • How do handle keeping yourself separated from becoming attached to the residents, example - if a resident passes, do I become completely attached or can I except, help and move on.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked what the salary was, she was unclear because I had experience and Brookdale had recently bought the old company out and their financial situation was stronger than the old company, wage based off revenue??
