    Food Service Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Bradenton, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It felt like they forgot I was coming. Her office was a mess and looked like they were trying to redecorate. She loved my resume and kind of hinted towards the fact that their kitchen was in need of help. I was not told that the person running the kitchen was a former construction worker with no formal training and that they had half the staff they needed.

    ADON Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    Somewhat unorganized. They made it seem like the facility was running like a well oiled machine which I later learned was quite the opposite. Also since I was trying to decided between another offer I asked a lot of questions but that was futile because they will tell you what you want to hear and then when you are hired it will change.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted to know what computer programs I was use to working with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did negotiate for a higher salary. This was done over the phone with the DON.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (Buffalo, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Had four phone interviews followed up by one in-person interview. I was very disappointed to have gone through the phone and in-person interviews only to never hear anything back from anyone. It is deeply disappointing to be witness and part of poorly managed hiring practices.

    Recruiter didn't call at the scheduled time for my phone screen. Didn't cancel in advance. Didn't contact me to reschedule as of 24 hours later. Very unprofessional. I'll not apply for any future positions and will delete my candidate profile if this feature is available to me.
