    CNA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Golden Living (Fresno, CA).

    Interview

    I trained at my location during my CNA program. During my program it was suggested that we apply to our training locations, so I did. I got a callback within a week, had a short/sweet interview, and was hired on the spot. From application to first day of work I would say it took 2 weeks. Within this two weeks I was called back, had an interview, called to say I was hired, got a drug test, took a two day orientation to watch safety videos, and then 4 days of actual orientation before my first day of work.

    Accounts Receiving Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Golden Living (Fort Smith, AR) in May 2015.

    Interview

    phone interview was basic, 2 mangers interview and accepted. I am guessing due to the hostile environment they have a turnaround on employees to fill the gaps left by leaving employees. I have additionally noticed/know that most employees are miserable and are just staying since Fort Smith is at such a high unemployment rate.

    The interview took place in the Director of Nursing's office sitting at her desk. The DON asked very basic and straightforward questions during the interview and a few specific questions about being a CNA.

    Certified Nursing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Augusta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Golden Living (Augusta, GA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was called and asked if I could come in the same day, about 3 weeks after submitting my application online. There wasn't much of an interview, but more of a "let me give you a feel for the place " My interviewer might as well have told me to run. Apparently the teamwork is almost nonexistent at this location, and there are so many problems that there is concern the they would be loosing their accreditation soon. The position I was applying for was PRN, and I would have been responsible for about 16-17 patients. That's a lot, to say the least, but to top it off was the low salary. I have no problem starting out at $8, but the rate at which you are offered raises was shown to me so I would know what I was getting into. It would literally take several years to get up to $10 an hour. I can deal with that only if I have a good team to work with, and fewer patients! I was told that she would give me a call back so that I could speak with the Director of Nursing, and I could tell her "what I had decided " I was never called back, so I assume that the position was filled, but I wouldn't have accepted it anyway!
