    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care.

    Interview

    I applied at HomeInstead because we used their services for my grandfather and each and every interaction with the HomeInstead service and their employees was tremendous. In short, I was sold on the company well before I applied. I waited until the right opportunity opened up at HomeInstead. Ultimately, the head of HR actually suggested that I post for the position and she conducted the initial interview. It was a dialogue about the position, the HomeInstead mission, and her experience/background. She committed to scheduling additional interviews with the senior managers with whom I would be working with and/or supporting. I never heard from her again despite several calls and emails.

    Home Health Caregiver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Colorado Springs, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Colorado Springs, CO) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The HR rep was seemingly kind and asked many good questions like what my passion for working with the elderly was and why I started in the field. She ended the interview telling me I was basically hired as I was over qualified for the position as it was and they would work to make sure I got paid appropriately. Days later I got a letter in the mail stating they had decided to go another way instead of just calling me like professionals.

    Interview Questions

    • I had a hard time accepting they were not professional enough to provide a call if they wanted to go another way considering in the interview they had prepared me for starting with them right away. Sending a letter was very cowardly.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care in January 2010.

    Interview

    I found them in a classified ad promising that applying today would mean working tomorrow. I was going to school at the time and decided to go for it, especially because I wanted to work with seniors in my field and the job claimed to be related to that. I called the number and they told me to come in at a certain time. They looked over my application, discussed different duties I had experience with, and promised to call my references. Apparently they did because I was being called for shifts a day or two later. It was very short and cursory. In hindsight, it's rather scary to think they weren't more thorough when they were hiring people to go into others' homes to look after vulnerable people.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't one. It was just "this is the hourly pay and that's it."
