I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Hartford, CT) in January 2013.
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.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks – interviewed at Holiday Retirement in December 2012.
A lot of structure yet I asked the same question (What is the occupancy of the facility?) to 3 different people during the interviewing process and no one knew the answer.
- How would I close the sale? I didn't know enough about the sales protocol to answer that question. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Holiday Retirement in December 2012.
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.
The is no negotiating, I do not recommend this job or support this company

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Savannah, GA).
Went to two states and met very nice interviewer. The second was with the regional manager who was very late and stayed on a few minutes. Very unprofessional. Only asked one question, "Can you move to any state."

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Atlanta, GA) in November 2012.
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.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in November 2012.
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.
- There were really no questions. It was as if he was selling me on their business. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Buffalo, NY) in November 2012.
Interviewed over phone for 3 minutes. Was flown in to So. Carolina for interview that lasted approximately 45 minutes.
No negotiating. The company treats you right up front, they spend a lot of money flying you from place to place and on training you but once that's over, they forget that you are a person with "human" needs.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Orlando, FL) in November 2012.
Was called in for a first interview tat took just over an hour, my second interview followed a week later and I was offered the position. I was sent to a community to train for a week then went to to the Dallas training center for an additional week. Following he training in Dallas I was told that I would move forward and take the position in the community, two people I trained with we're asked to resign as hey just did not fit the company mold.
- All the questions where pretty basic, the most challenging was why Holiday ? Answer Question
Yes there was some negation room.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Montana City, MT).
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.
- What is the most rewarding aspect of the sales process? 1 Answer
No need to negotiate, the offer was more than competitive for this market and the incentives and perks were also encouraging.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Phoenix, AZ).
Emails were sent back and forth between the recruiter and I. I was then asked to prepare a statement before phone interview. Had a phone interview with the recruiter and was told that it went well. I then got an email stating that we had been pushed forward to the face to face interview and that I would have details by Friday. Then of Friday night I received an email stating that the region was full and that they weren’t reviewing and new applications. Which I don’t understand because my application had already been reviewed
- The only difficult questions were the ones I was ask to answer for the recruiter. They were unclear, misspelled; she used bad grammar, and no punctuation Answer Question
