    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brentwood, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Brentwood, TN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview, followed by in-person interviews with about 5 different people. They did a great job of scheduling the interviews back-to-back so I was not waiting around. I felt like everyone I met with really gave me their attention and respect. They had a person lead me to each interview, so I felt like I was given the VIP treatment even though I was interviewing for a lower-level role. After the interview I had timely follow-up and was offered the position. During the two weeks it took for me to give notice to my employer, I was able to easily complete my on-boarding paperwork electronically, and they did a drug-screen and background check. What I was really impressed with is how my new manager sent me a bouquet of flowers with a card that said how excited she was to have me on her team! On my first day, they had an orientation for me to attend to familiarize me with this large company, and my desk was 100% set up with everything I needed to start working! I was thrilled to have joined a company that put so much emphasis on the Candidate Experience!!

    Patient Services Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional way of coordinating interviews. Im in recruiting and coordinating and i know when a set time and date is scheduled, you keep that time and date and if not, let them know in advance you cannot make that time and date. I was asked to arrive and be seen around 2:00 PM - 2:15 PM. I arrived at 2:10 PM and was not seen til 3:10 pm!! Why ask me to come at a certain time and not see me one hour later? They provided me a form to fill out 5 mins before they called me in. I was sitting there waiting for a whole hour not doing anything, why didn't they give me the form when I arrived to fill it out? Then, the hiring manager tried to say she was a busy lady and made it seem it was my fault. Excuse me, everyone is busy, it's your job to keep track of time and time management. You asked me to come onsite, yet I go out of my way and you can't even go out of yours to keep a set schedule on track? Then, she explained I didn't fill out the form properly. I filled it out and provided my resume which had all the same questions they were looking for on my resume. Either, they don't like to read or wanted an easy way to find out answers that catered to them and their interviews style to eliminate candidates. Either way, she did not once apologize for seeing me late nor did she care if I had other commitments after.
