    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Interview process was not streamlined. Talent Acquisition contacts you but if you are hired the follow up is lacking. Several of us did not receive our new hire paperwork. I was interviewed by several managers and there was really no direction to the interview. Very flat, no affect. The nicest person was HR and they have restructured and she is now gone.
