Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

Interview

I applied on their company website, and was called for an interview just a few short days later. The Wellness Director (RN) conducted a very brief phone interview to narrow down what they had available and asked me some questions about my experience. I was invited to interview 1:1 with the Wellness Director, given a tour of the community, and asked more questions about my experience in healthcare. The interview consisted of basic interview-type questions that are common in CNA/Caregiver jobs. Pay and hours were discussed during this interview as well. The job offer was contingent upon negative TB test results, favorable reference checks, background check, and a negative drug screen. All very standard if you have experience in healthcare. All of the services were easy to access and paid for by the company. It was very efficient.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Brookdale Senior Living (North Tonawanda, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I found the posting on Indeed.com. I was in need of a job more closely related to what my career choice was, which I was going to school for Nursing to be a Regsitered Nurse. I got a call back within 3 weeks and had my interview the next day. I was very warmly greeted by the LPN that was hiring me, and we sat in this cozy little room where she gave me cupcakes and coffee and we just talked. She did give me some interview like questions, but for the most part she wanted to get a feel for what kind of person I was and if I would be a good fit personality wise for the job. She told me flat out that she really really liked me. When I got home, not even an hour later, I got a call back extending me the job offer. Very laid back. That is the kind of experience you want when working in a field like this.
