    Co Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Lack of communication and continuity up and down and across Holiday Retirement Human Resource and Recruitment functions, roles, and players: corporate, between and within regions. Yet, all 'progressed' satisfactorily until fourth interview, with the lead management team: inept, professionally suspect, 20th century stones…INTERVIEWS WORK BOTH WAYS, people.

    Community Sales Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who found my resume on careerbuilder.com. Then she invited me to interview in California the next week. The company paid airfare, hotel, and rental car. Interview lasted all of 20 minutes. He didn't really ask me anything and said I would hear back in a few days. 10 days later I received an email saying they went another direction. I was shocked that they would spend the money to fly someone out and not do a more in depth interview.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter in OR based on my charitable endeavors and not what i currently do for a living. Then i was flown to and from Atlanta from Florida in one day for an interview with a talent recruiter who asked me questions and took me on a tour of the property i was visiting. I believe i did well but not well enough to meet with the regional sales manager. After a week went by without hearing back i was pretty certain i was no longer in the running for the position so i called the recruiter who confirmed the obvious. I asked for feed back on how i could improve in a similar situation. All she said was they hired someone better qualified which was as disappointing as not getting the job. All in all very nice people but bummed out i didn't get the job or feed back.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    When we were interviewed the whole process was rather disjointed and un-professional. The recruiter (worked for Holiday) had no idea what was going on ...very disorganized. ...our first interview could hardly be called an interview though. We were interviewed twice, both times left with the understanding we would be hired and would be contacted soon. Both times we had to contact the recruiter only to find out he knew nothing...after the 2nd interview (by the RSL) we at least had a contact...I think we were eventually hired because we kept pestering her for information about our status.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Lots of preliminary phone screening from an outsourced 3rd party hiring agency. several follow up one-on-one interviews with managers up to the regional level. After they saw that you fit their culture and needs, the rest of the hiring process was fast and furious to get you trained and on board.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Holiday Retirement.

    Interview Details

    It seems the company found me. My resume was located by a recruiter and I received a phone call asking if I would be interested in traveling to California for an interview. Three days later I was on an airplane. The entire trip from to California was paid along with expenses. Highly professional company that ensured all travel arrangements were well thought out and coordinated. Interviewed with a single sales recruting professional and departed after an hour long interview mostly covering personality and sales. Exactly six days later, I was offered the job at the location I wanted along with the salary I was told to expect. No surprises here.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Holiday Retirement in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview seemed fine and they are nice enough to fly you to your in person interview but they seemed somewhat disorganized and unprepared for the interview. It was clear the phone interviewer hadn't shared everything with the 1-1 interviewer as there were many duplicate questions. We thought everything went fine in the interview and the 1-1 interviewer promised to call us the following Monday. We never heard back from her even to give us an email saying thanks no thanks and were therefore disappointed as that is very unprofessional.
