    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Must register online through Sunrise website and fill out online application for initial qualification screening. For key personnel, a company or third party recruiter may contact you for a phone interview. You will be required to take an online "personality" or "style" survey. If you are selected, direct supervisor will contact you to set up an in-person interview. Subsequent panel interview with direct supervisor and at least one additional regional director (I interviewed with two regional directors).

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared to answer "situational" or "performance" questions where you will be asked to recall specific past situations or problems and to role play how you handled them, or asked for a specific, hypothetical situation or problem and how you would handle it or to describe a potential solution. It will likely be a situation that required problem solving skills, adaptability, leadership, conflict resolution, multi-tasking, initiative or stress management. It can be difficult to recall past situations "on the fly" so do some planning ahead of time.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The offer was immediately acceptable. Some advice: do not start working until you have received an offer letter AND any negotiated bonus/commission plan in explicit writing (and ask for clarification on any confusing or obscure language).

    Care Giver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 Questions
    • 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

    You will interview with the Executive Director and possibly the management team of the community you are applying for. The next step is a phone or live interview with the area Director of Operations and possibly an interview with a Reminiscence specific Senior Manager. It could take weeks for them to get back to you but that doesn't mean you didn't get the job.

    Not much of a negotiation. Make sure to ask a lot of questions and do a lot of research. They will not tell you their "skeletons."

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was professional but they seem to be very scattered in terms of direction. Felt as if it would be hard to build a team. Very pleasant people but are not willing to provide the technology and programs needed for the position.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions but rather asking on how I would put together a team.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They didn't have the direction and commitment that I feel is required to be successful in the position. Everything was to vague.
