    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Oklahoma City, OK) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
