    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is a bit cumbersome. It is with a few people however, once hired it is a totally different story and it is very different. At that time the employee can fall into their own patterns and ways of doing things.

    Interview Questions
    • There was not one because they were all pertaining to the job that I do on a daily as so it was a natural conversation.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kindred Healthcare in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Not your typical process when job hunting. You apply online and if you call to check on your application you are told that a recruiter will get in contact with you and that managers don't have a say on who is sent to their facility for an interview. I actually applied to one facility and was sent for and interview at another facility. It did take several weeks for the recruiter to get in contact with me to set up the interview. However after the interview I was offered a job that day once my background check was complete.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions like why this company, where do you see yourself in x amount of years, and name a time you had to work with a group to solve a problem.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They do not negotiate wages they base it on a system they have in place that factors in your years of experience and position to determine what pay will be.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Kindred Healthcare in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied and hadn't heard back so I called and still didn't hear back. Finally I received a call from corporate and had a phone interview which went well. Basically they asked about my precious work experience and schooling. She then set up an interview with me. I went in and waited almost a half hour for the director of nursing to come get me for my interview. She asked basic questions and offered me the job. I was given an unintentional tour as it was near impossible to find anyone in the building to process my paperwork.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if you were to find a patient in their room unresponsive?   Answer Question
    • How would you handle two STNAs arguing loudly in the hallways?   Answer Question
