    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Louisville, KY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They were typical interview questions along with some behavioral questions and role playing questions. Like where do you see yourself in five years? If I am the hiring manager, explain the process or flow you would take in a full cycle recruiting role. How would you handle a difficult manager?   Answer Question
    • See above for example questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was not able to negotiate due to salary of existing recruiter.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Dallas, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted to interview with Kindred on Thursday, and my interview was scheduled for Friday. I drove two hours to meet with the employer at their location only to be told the hiring manager was not there that day. They had plenty of time to contact me before hand and let me know that they needed to reschedule, and they were aware of how far I was traveling to reach them. I declined to reschedule my interview. I was contacted the next Monday by the administrator to try and reschedule my interview, and I finally received an apology for their unprofessional-ism. I declined again. I do not want to work for this company anymore.
