    Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview

    I applied online through Indeed, and was called for an interview 5-6 days later. I was told upfront that I was overqualified for the position, and they called me in because my resume was formatted nicely. The employer went over the tasks and duties for the position I applied for and asked if I had any questions. Not sure why they would call me for an interview in the first place if I overqualified in their eyes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview

    Went to a job fair.Three Brookdale representatives were there. They were chatting and laughing among themselves and were in no way interested in talking to a job prospect. I told them I had just applied for a position. They asked what it was and said if they are interested they will call you. SOME would have thought it was a great opportunity to get to know more about Brookdale, pick up some literature, learn about the company culture. Brookdale PAYS a hefty sum for employee job referrals. I can see why it is necessary.

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Buford, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Started off by filling out a paper application (do so on the website before you go to the interview). The interview lasted no more than 2 minutes. Interviewer went over my application and explained the job duties and responsibilities to me, went on to explain this job was more entry level. Looking at my past experience was honest she did not have authority to offer me close to what I have previously been paid.
