Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Louisville, KY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in September 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online via ATS which was a very easy process. Several months later, contacted by a recruiter who conducted a 15 minute phone screen. Followed up after a week or two and came in for a 1:1 interview with the director and then the other recruiter joined later to continue the interview. A week later, met with the VP of HR who conducted an interview in a role playing questionnaire. A couple of weeks later extended an offer. Accepted due to elimination of previous employer but with a significant pay and benefit cut. Took a couple of weeks to get an approved offer. Completed an online onboarding portal followed up with a drug screen and background check. Was never contacted as to whether the drug screen and background check cleared. Very welcoming once on board, but little to no training.
