    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brightview Senior Living.

    Interview

    Group interview for range of positions being interviewed at one time. Director of the facility sat in front of a row of applicants and asked us a series of questions to which we could respond or not respond. She took notes and said that she would pass our information on to the individual department head in charge or the area we were interested in. When asked when we should expect to hear from that person the director indicated 3-4 days. 3 weeks later I received an email saying they would like to talk further.

    Executive Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brightview Senior Living (Baltimore, MD) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The first time I applied online and took a test. I didn't hear anything. I applied a year later when another community had availability and at the suggestion of a friend. I did receive a call from a wonderful recruiter and he was so positive about my results on the test /my experience/ education and apologized for the fact that no one had called me before. I took off from work for my interview, which was over an hour away from my home (the office in Baltimore) and waited for 45 minutes past my interview time to be led into a conference room where I took a timed test. The internet went down halfway thru the test and I had to go out and ask for someone to come in and fix it. They said it had never happened before but I started over again. No big deal. Then I met with a talent manager and she was fabulous-Very sweet . She said she was sure that I would be hearing from them. After that, I met with probably one of the worst interviewers I have ever encountered. Not friendly at all and it was obvious to me that he had an issue as soon as he walked in the room. He had a piece of paper with a bunch of prepared questions to ask me and did not deviate at all or personalize the interview. Not one question seemed very relevant to what my position would be and is now. I answered them all with honesty but I could feel he wasn't really interested in my answers. I could feel his boredom and he didn't seem to want to interview me.
    I was so impressed with the other two people that I had met though. I had very high hopes for Brightview and thought the mission aligned so well with mine and what I was looking for in an employer.
    I was very disappointed because another colleague of mine works for Brightview and encouraged me to apply for this position as she thought it would be a perfect fit.
    I had to ask for feedback on the interview and two weeks later was told that the gentleman (regional person who interviewed me that was horrible) did not want to go any further. I was told it was his decision alone.
    I feel like I wasted my time, effort, gas and a vacation day (LOL) on a company that didn't even give me a chance. By the way...I would have been a great employee and it was their loss.

    I took a personality assessment and spoke with a great HR person who was very informative and enthusiastic about the company. When I arrived for in person I was surprisingly led to a conference room to take an assessment prior to my interview. (I'd suggest that be done in advance or ensure candidates is aware of the process.) Then interviewed with hiring manager which was an ok experience.
