After our face to face, we briefly took a tour of the facility. Before I left the manager stated she wanted to set me up with a second interview with the director and he would probably call me this afternoon.

    Operations Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Genesis HealthCare (Schaumburg, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Unfortunately it turned out horribly. I initially had 2 phone interviews with 2 different people for an operations coordinator position. At this point I was still looking at other opportunities and at the time was still contemplating my intererst. I obviously wanted to move forward in order to learn more about the position and the company. After setting up a 3rd interview, I hoped final in person interview, upon my arrival I was advised that a Junior Account Manager position had opened & she felt it was more up my ally & asked if I'd be interested in interviewing for that position as well. I inquired as to whether the position was a higher level position & she confirmed it was so of course I agreed to interview for the suggested position although I should have declined & continued on with my interview that I was already prepared for. I requested a job description. I was then put into a meeting room & given a few moments to read the new job description Id be interviewing for. What bothers me the most is that my job was pending an in person interview in which I interviewed with 2 NEW employees. One of the girls said she'd been there for 2 months, and the other only 3. So the outcome was pending an opinion from 2 employees that didn't really know much about the company anyway nor knew how to successfully interview a candidate. It would have been more professional to have interviewed with someone with longevity with the company. After what I thought to be a good interview given the situation, the hiring manager advised that she'd like me to do one last phone interview with the VP & would get back to me with his availability. After sending a thank you follow up & 2 more follow up emails in regards to the status, I was told that the VP was actually in the IL office & was going to go over the interviews she had & would get back to me by Friday. I thought that might have been an ideal opportunity to get a face to face interview with the VP vs over the phone right??? Wrong! After not hearing anything by Friday, I emailed on Monday inquiring if any decisions had been made. She replied back stating both of the positions were no longer available!!?? Very disappointing & completely unprofessional. 1. Why drag a candidate along when you know they didn't get the job & 2. Why didn't I just interview for the operations coordinator position I originally came in for? Why suggest another opening I'd be a better fit for if I wasn't getting selected for it?? How could I not be selected for either?? Should I have just declined the offer to interview for a different position and continued the interview for the operations coordinator?? Probably. I had 2 very successful phone interviews about that position & then when I actually meet the office staff, end up interviewing for the first time for another position & then walk away with nothing. I was assuming she suggested a different position on our 3rd interview bc it would be a benefit to me & the company. I never thought I wouldn't land either? So pretty much dragged me along for 3 weeks! I think someone else should take over the hiring process over there. No feedback, no nothing?! Probably good anyway if thats how they do business with a potential new employee.

    CNA Course Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairmont, WV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Genesis HealthCare (Fairmont, WV) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very good. The CNA instructor is one of the best RNs in this entire country. It is a shame she is wasting her time here. The HR woman is very professional, laid back, and genuine. The hiring process and my CNA class was amazing. A truly great experience, never to forget. Unfortunately, Genesis only retains people who are too afraid to leave. That gives poor quality of care to the residents, and it gives bad impressions to new CNAs who have a fresh and untainted outlook.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Take the course and give it a try. Its a great place if you like hard work. This is the hardest facility in the area. If you learn how to NA here, you can NA anywhere.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Genesis HealthCare (Winston-Salem, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on June 10th after quitting my previous job. I called to follow up the next morning and the lady on the phone said she would pull my application for the hiring lady. I had a phone call late that afternoon to schedule an interview for the upcoming Monday, June 15th. The interview was very straight forward. She said the schedule sucked so i needed to decide if i wanted to go on and I said yes. She explained that they aren't joking and they are very high quality compared to other facilities and I said i understood. She gave me a chance to ask questions which were answered efficiently. I received a call on Thursday June 18th to do my drug test and was told to call back on the 1st of July to set up orientation. I officially accepted the offer on the 1st of July and I will be notified of my start date shortly.
