    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ResCare WorkForce (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    A waste of time. Never contacted my references, or did finger print profile on me. Refused to hire me for no professional reason. They kept me in the dark with no notification. I'm really shocked. I thought this company was professional. What happened to the integrity?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ResCare WorkForce.

    Interview

    The online application system is terribly difficult. Cannot save information; application must be complete from scratch in one sitting. If it times out, all work is lost. Does not save application to be reused for future openings. The staff who invited me for an interview and conducted the interview were very professional and friendly. The location has good longevity and good morale. The interview required an original presentation about 5 minutes in length.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you motivate a person who is discouraged and has not been able to find a job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No room to negotiate; they had a set budget and no flexibility.

    Interview

    Called in for a group screening where we had to split off into groups of five and work as a team to present on a specified prompt. Afterwards, individual interviews were conducted with two managers interviewing you at the same time. Fairly straight forward, pretty easy.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ResCare WorkForce.

    Interview

    When they said group interview, I imagined interviewing in front of a panel of interviewers. Well, there was a panel, but there was also a large group of other applicants all interviewing at once! It felt like the hunger games. They asked a question to the group, then each candidate answered one by one. I believe they asked 2 questions like this, then split us into groups of 3-4 to work collaboratively to answer a third question. Luckily, I was paired with 2 shy ladies and I was able to present the answer to the panel. After that, we had to give a writing sample and take a ProveIt test on: Outlook, Word, and Excel.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions weren't difficult, but having to think of a unique way to answer when 15 people have gone before you is very stressful.   Answer Question

    Structured Interview Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ResCare WorkForce (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    They will ask you a whole bunch of structured questions. The main thing is you need to make sense, but don't worry about the actual content of your answer. None of the management teams who do the hiring are actually trained in the interview process. I know, because I was one of the interviewers at three different ResCare locations. I was trained in structured interviewing at a different employer, but nobody gets trained at ResCare. There are some individuals who think they know how to assess the interview responses, but they really don't. It just boils down to justifying the answers of the person they want to hire. I've even seen them work backwards… giving the person they want to hire - for whatever reason - the highest score, and then working backwards to make sure the other candidates get a lower score. It's whacked….
