    I had a pleasant conversation with person on the phone. The part was to take a personality test via the web. Sid i would need to get a score of 50% or better to be consider. I do not understand how you score these? There is no right or wrong answer. As of this date I haven' heard back yet. guess I didn't make the cut, who knows. Has anybody else applied here and took the test. Did they explain the Score?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Louisville, KY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    There is an initial screening where you have to submit a video of yourself training something to your contract house. If they like you they pass you on to the Kindred. There is a phone interview which lasts for 30 minutes basically about how you handle your training class and some behavioral questions. If you pass the phone interview you are flown to Louisville to be interviewed by 4 people at once. They let you know if you got the job the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • In person you might be asked to do a short training on something you didn't prepare for. They try to throw you off your square to see if you can think on your feet. If you're a good trainer, this won't be a problem.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You negotiate with your contract house. It was painless.
