    Residential Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ResCare in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very unprofessional. I was wearing a suit but the 'regional managers' were wearing jeans and flip flops. They barely asked me any questions but were very honest about the companies shortcomings. No preparation needed. They just read from your resume and ask questions.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    The job was only good in title. They wanted someone with a BS/BA but when the salaried position was calculated per hour it broke down to 11.31. Also if you are any type of manager you have to be on call 24/7/365 and if someone calls out, YOU have to work a 16 hour shift UNPAID before overtime to can be approved.
