    I applied online – interviewed at Sava Senior Care in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews- First interview with the Hiring Manager and VP, Second interview was with other department manager and last interview was with the Hiring Manager to see if I understood the position and also to ask final questions.

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was rescinded during negotiation. I asked for $10,000 more which I thought they would meet me in the middle), if the waiting period on 401k matching could be waive and for an additional 5 vacation days.

    They did not try to negotiate or tell me that it was none negotiable. They just rescinded the job offer. This tells you alot about the company

    Senior Human Resources Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sava Senior Care in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and after one month I received a call from the recruiter. She was unfocused, distracted and I could easily determine that the person was working from home. The questions were general and basic. Nothing was really focused on my resume/talents. Two days later, the hiring manager called me. This person was banging pots and pans, could not "remember" the questions and was totally distracted. The entire interview lasted a whopping 19 minutes. I would expect a higher level of professionalism from the hiring manager and the recruiter. If this is any indication of the organization, I would not consider Sava Senior Care as an employer of choice.

    The recruiter called two days later to state that they were moving forward with other candidates. Thank you!

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult - just difficult for the hiring manager to remember. Geez!   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sava Senior Care in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went very quickly. Once you take their personality test, the interview process progressing quickly. After meeting the Area Director for a face to face interview, three days later, I had a phone interview with the Regional Director. The next day, I had a 15 minute phone interview with the V.P. of Sales. I have worked with Fortune 100 companies, and this interview process was very professional. Sava Senior Care relies heavily on the personality test to weed out many of the candidates.
