    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Extendicare in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a tour of the facility and introduction to some staff and residents. The atmosphere is very fast-paced at all hours with staff smiling when they greeted the residents and each other. The Director of Nursing (DON) was kind, smiled a lot, and described her position and intentions for the nursing staff. She shared her vision of care and gave some highlights of her plan achieve the goals reminding me that nurses are leaders and she expects her nurses to give "a little something extra with each patient interaction."

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Extendicare in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    So a day after I applied online for a social work director's position a recruiter called me. He did a brief phone interview, asked me why I was interested in the position and about my current job experience. Nothing too difficult. Later that same day he called to schedule a time to do an in-person interview at the facility. He said that they would show me around and talk to me a little bit more about the position. I was ecstatic! When I went in for my in-person interview, I saw a middle aged women wheeling herself around outside in the parking lot. I chatted with her a bit, and then proceeded to go into the facility. There was no one at the front desk so I sat and waited a couple of minutes until the administrator finally came out, she wheeled an older lady right next to me (I knew this was a test), I tried to talk to her and asked her how she was doing, but she must not have heard me as she never answered. Not wanting to be pushy I left it at that. A few minutes later the administrator came back out. She asked me generic questions about my resume and was completely cold and rude to me. On my way out I heard her rip up my resume. I was devastated. On my way home I called the recruiter back and explained to him that it didn't go well and asked if there were any other open positions, he was surprised when I said that she seemed very "cold" and uninterested, so he actually called her and asked what had happened. Apparently according to the recruiter she had interviewed someone that morning and had basically decided to go with her instead. This would have been nice to know as I had driven for 2 hours to get there and wasted 4 hours of my time. I did notice later on that the job was still posted online, so I'm sure he was just trying to make me feel better about the whole situation. Either way I felt I was not given a real opportunity and their interview process seemed a bit unethical.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Extendicare in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview with this company was quick and personable. I met the director of nursing and the administrator of the long-term care facility. Completed a tour with the staff coordinator and was given an application packet. The facility was very clean, well organized, professional, with genuinely happy clients. After turning in my application the next day, I was offered the position. Unfortunately, I have a monitoring authority over my license and once this was explained, it was clear that it had to be further discussed with the leadership of the facility. Cordially, I thanked them for their time and insisted they process the application and then let me know. Overall, the staff and the clients were happy all supporting a minimal stress level work environment. Definetly, a company I would recommend and wish to work for in the future.
