    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Simi Valley, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Simi Valley, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Holiday Retirement in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    A phone interview was the first step. After that, a second interview was scheduled about three hours driving distance from the location they were hiring for. All of the staff at the other location were warm and welcoming, although the actual interview was more than a half hour behind schedule. The recruiter was, bluntly, egotistical and unprofessional. She kept to the normal questions of a second interview but I believe, if given the opportunity, she would have talked about herself the whole time while having her feet hiked up on a chair, which she mostly accomplished. I should have expected she would be a week late on getting back to us.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Holiday Retirement in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process seemed to quick with a single decision maker. I was first interviewed by two analysts and then a senior managing director. They asked basic questions about my real estate and financial analysis skill set and then asked me to author a financial model i would create in a day in 40 mins. This company is very specific in what they do; senior living facilities. They did not care about any other real estate or finance experience. For the Analyst role they wanted someone that could create and maintain financial models for senior living facilities and conduct analysts. Thats it. Overall, pleasant and positive personalities but job opportunity had limited growth potential (they actually said that) and pay was below market. Most importantly the learning potential was not there.

    • They asked me to author a complete financial model with an amortization table while in the office.   View Answer
