    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with 3 people over the phone. Met the recruiter at a holiday location,he was very unprofessional,but nice. Once hired you go to a training community, that was to worse experience ever! Then they fly you to another location for 2 weeks for sales training. The best 2 weeks of the job ever. Then they give you 1 week to fly or drive home and be I your community.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was recruited by a third party. Interview process seemed extreamly lengthy and expensive, poorly thought out. Went to the expense to fly candidates all over the U.S. willy nilly.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult except the "leadership", and I use the word loosely. The blind leading the blind.   Answer Question

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter from my online resume. I was flown to Atlanta for initial interview which took about an hour. Interviewer was nice enough and only asked a few questions, she spent the whole interview typing in my answers into her computer. All seemed to go well she said she was sending me to the next step in the interview and gave me the name of the regional director who would be contacting me within a few days. Three days later I received a canned email that they had gone with another candidate.

    Community Sales Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who said he found my resume on career builder. He was very thorough in his explanation of the role. Further, he screened me with a variety of questions that were mainly sales related. I was then flown to Ontario, CA, where I met with an Interview Manager. He was extremely professional, polite, and asked a series of questions about my past - mainly looking for sales positions I had been in previously and how i would handle different scenarios. Questions were in-depth, detailed, and, calculated. The interview lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes. i was then on my way back to the airport and home. Overall very professional and a great experience. I was told I would hear back in 4-10 business days and got a mail 5 days later saying i was not selected. Disappointed - yes - but a very professional environment with an extremely professional interview. Great experience.

    Sous Chef Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The executive chef knew nothing and made promises he couldn't keep. The inept management team also knew very little and could neither confirm or negate any information stated in the interview. It was a constant struggle to get what was offered at the initial interview. I would never recommend this company. I read horror stories on this and other websites about this company and went ahead thinking it had to be scorned former employees ranting. Weeks after taking a better and higher paying job, I still have a distaste for this company.
