Interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living

Interview Details – I had a very horrible interview experience but I can't even call it that since it ended before it even began. I was told by phone that interviews were conducted once a week in a group. So I arrived at the scheduled day and time for this so-called group interview. When I arrived the front door entrance was jammed. I waited 5 minutes outside for someone to let me in. I had a bad feeling about how the rest of my time there would proceed, rightfully so. When I checked in with front reception, I sat down and waited patiently for 35 minutes passed by scheduled interview time. After waiting patiently for 35 minutes in the lobby, the director came and told me that the person supposed to interview me was not here and that she didn't know she was interviewing someone. She then proceeded and wanted to interview me in the lobby. In my head I'm like, really lady??? Is this professional??? So I politely asked her if their is an office we can go to and discuss the position in private. We then proceeded to an office. First thing she asked me is what hours I'm looking for. I said weekdays as I work on the weekend. She then says we don't have anything available on the weekdays and she can't help me out. I'm like the job ad didn't mention anything about what hours you were looking for, all it said was for a part-time position. Why don't they tell you this before so you don't waste your time and gas going there??? At that point I honestly didn't even want the job. I got a bad impression of how they treat their employees. Most likely they treat them like dirt. Overall I spent an hour traveling and my time wasted in preparing and waiting in the lobby for nothing. They have a horrible organization. I personally would not recommend any of my friends to work there. They probably pay like crap as well. Corporate will sure be hearing from me. I want my gas money!

Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in March 2012.

Interview Details – Resume submitted. Received call. Met in a group interview session. Questions asked were of a general variety. The company is looking for out-going, people-friendly employees with a penchant for wanting to help other human beings. Good to be somewhat assertive and able to give real-life examples of how you may have helped others in the past.

Interview Question – Describe an instance where you went out of your way to help someone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was none.

Interview Details – I first applied online with a Cover Letter and Resume. I have absolutely no experience in Care-giving or work experience, and although I was very eager to learn, I was still very surprised when I got the e-mail telling me a was selected to go to an interview.

The e-mail didn't say it was a group interview, but there was about 15 - 20 people. Most were looking for Caregiver position, and I believe about 2 people were there for the Team Leader Position. They have a very beautiful facility and we were interviewed in some type of lounge/living room with tables and couches. The interview was very informal. The only question asked: "Please tell us about yourself & why do you want to work at Sunrise?" I don't remember who exactly interviewed us, but there one of our interviewed informed us that the interview process is a long one. We were free to ask our interviewers any questions we had about the job.

This was my very first job interview ever! I had a nice experience, although I was very confused as to why they would send me in for an interview when they had people who were much more qualified than I was. I was very nervous and a bit intimidated when I got to know a little bit about the other prospectives before the actual "interview". I realized that I was in way over my head so I guess it kind of helped my nerves a bit, because I kind of figured that I would not be hired, so I had nothing to lose LOL.

Interview Question – Only one question: Tell us about yourself & why you want to work for Sunrise. We went around the room and introduced ourselves. It was pretty informal.   Answer Question

Care Giver Interview

Huntington Beach, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in July 2011.

Interview Details – I was emailed to come in for a group interview. I called to confirm that I would be there. I was in a group of people. There was no individual interview. In the group was a nurse with experience in the field. I am sure she got the job. I feel the interview wasn't fair, as each person wasn't given the opportunity to personally interact with the staff. There was an observer taking notes the whole time. No one there for the interview asked questions.

Care Giver Interview

Addison, IL

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in February 2011.

Interview Details – I applied at the nursing home, a few days later I received a call scheduling an interview. The interview was with a large group about 10-15 people. There were two managers there that asked the group the basic questions such as: why health care, why sunrise, etc. If you are up beat, motivated and energetic they will call you about 3-4 days after that group interview you offer you a position.

Interview Question – How have you dealt with difficult individuals   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiate for entry level job.
