    I worked at Ensign Group full-time for more than a year


    I worked in the corporate Mission Viejo office and this company is fantastic. The culture is first class and the upper management is too. Free food is also a pretty frequent occurrence. Great work-life balance. Training is also pretty good.


    It's hard to find cons, but generally this is not a company to join if you are looking for advancement in your career or if you are looking for higher than average compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. If turnover appears to be a problem, consider offering a more competitive pay rate.

    Nursing Home Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Los Angeles, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ensign Group in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was very disorganized. There is a two step interview process. The first interview is with their recruiter, the second interview is with a number of Nursing Home Administrators that are currently working for the organization. Frankly, my second round of interviews was the most unprofessional interviewing process I have ever been a part of, at this level of my career. In my opinion, it was full of pompous administrators who no process to their interview, and frankly felt like a compete joke by the third interview. I had interviewers answering their cell phones, people interrupting the interview, and responded to questions where they simply wanted you to fire employees (give me a break, poor management is not the fault of the employees--yes firing is necessary at times, but not in the context that this organization wanted you to answer, which may be why they deal with high turnover. I was told by one of their administrators that it is around 1/3 yearly). It very quickly became evident that the companies practices, and culture were not what I wanted in my career, and I knew by the end of the day that I did not want to work for this organization and would not move forward with them when presented an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • None. They did not have a set format, all of the questions were very poorly asked/structured.   Answer Question
