I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in February 2013.
Interview Details – I was initially contacted and had a very short phone interview with a member of human resources at a particular location before being cut off (one of our phones). My phone did not save her number, and I attempted to get in contact with her over the next two days, only to be met with impatience and inconsideration by another staff member over the phone. I had multiple different people call me, all scheduling different interview times that conflicted with one another and leave messages, so I was confused as to when I was supposed to meet with their hiring staff. I again, was met with impatience and gross unprofessionalism in comments and behavior from staff, but finally settled on a date for this in-person interview.
I showed up to the interview 15 minutes early, dressed appropriately, with resume and cover letter in hand. I was greeted with a confused look and lack of enthusiasm/professionalism. I stated my name and purpose and was told that I was not supposed to be in that day. Turns out, I was confused with another applicant with the exact same name! She stated to me that they had my application on file, but that the staff I was supposed to speak with (about three people) all happened to sick on the same day and she had no idea when they were coming back or when I could speak to them. She simply handed me a business card and said that someone would get to me within the next few weeks. I was not called or informed of the change of plans, nor was I given an apology. Very disappointed. The facility itself is beautiful and has a very "homey" feel to it. The residents also seemed nice, but I did not have a great first impression of any staff members. I accepted another offer and will decline this offer should a staff member call me back about the position.
