Difficult Interview

Executive Director Interview

Executive Director

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

Interview Details – I was promoted from within still had to complete fingerprint and background screenings. It is for the safety and well being of the residents. The process is lengthly especially for a new associate to Brookdale. The background screening can take from 1 - 10 + days depending on names, addresses. Healthcare is so regulated, it is out of Brookdale control, then there is fingerprinting, drug test, physical and TB test. That process takes time. If some one doesn't meet any one of those test, they could be declined the offer. From on-line application to offer was about 4 - 6 weeks.

Interview Question – Do you believe you have all the information/knowledge to be able to work in this position effectively?   View Answer

Move In Coordinator Interview

Move In Coordinator
Richmond, VA

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

Interview Details – I am so glad to see that someone finally posted that their interview process took three months. I have been waiting a very long time and they asked if I was still interested and still I have heard nothing. I am having a terrible time understanding this.
