Easy Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at Genesis HealthCare.

Interview

A lost of back and forth with a recruiter via email, followed by a chat with the area director over the phone. When I finally got to the facility for what I though was my interview, I already had the job but nobody told me. I was so anxious, waiting for the actual interview portion to begin and my boss just showed me around and sent me to watch another SLP do a treatment. I never felt like I was actually "interviewed" but I guess they had all the information they needed.

Interview Questions

  • During the phone conversation, the area director asked about my experience and my interests within the field. That was as close to an interview as it got.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Genesis HealthCare (Charleston, WV) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was relaxed and simple. A recruiter contacted me and set up a phone interview within a week. After the interview, I visited the facility for a tour and additional informal interview. The rehab coordinator showed me the facility and asked a few questions. The interview/tour only lasted an hour.

    Interview

    Found and applied for job online, received a phone call that week from HR for a telephone interview and to tell me more about the position. Scheduled an interview for the following week and received an offer the next day. Negotiated salary and accepted position the next day. Rehab team was great! Interdisciplinary team approach. Manager was tolerable, but not friendly or approachable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Genesis HealthCare (Charlotte, NC) in March 2011.

    Interview

    In a room with rehab director, his boss, and 2 SLP's. Very nice in conference room. I recall specifically asking if there was enough work to warrant a 3rd person in this department. I was assured that it was. Following being offered a job and 3-4 weeks into the position I discovered that it was not. I struggled for an entire year to maintain 40 hours per week. I was frequently using PTO to make 40 r's/wk.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Genesis HealthCare in March 2010.

    Interview

    I was referred to the company by a former employee who had kept friends in management positions at Genesis. The interview took place one afternoon at the facility I would be working in if I was offered the job. The area director was friendly and gave me a tour of the building before settling down in a conference room. I was not forewarned about how long the interview would actually take, which I was thankful for. The interview itself was 1:1 in a comfortable setting. I was asked a SERIES of CLINICAL questions, most of which began with "Tell me about a situation when...." and ended in "....and please provide specific examples." There was a good amount of these lengthy questions, all of which encouraged me to draw from the clinical experience I'd had throughout grad school. I was very thankful to have had a wonderful internship in an acute rehab facility where I had the opportunity to work with medically complex adult patients.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when the patient's family was confused about or not-in-agreement with a decision you made a therapist and what you did to educate the pt & family regarding his plan of care. Be as specific as possible.   1 Answer
    • Tell me about a time during your practicum experience that you and your supervisor had a disagreement and what you did to rectify the situation. Be as specific as possible.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Since this was my first paying job as an SLP, I didn't really feel comfortable negotiating. I'd done my research on first year salaries for SLPs and my offer fell within that range, so I didn't want to sound greedy asking for more.
