    Charge Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bakersfield, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Crestwood Behavioral Health (Bakersfield, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    This was a lengthy drawn out process that could have transpired within 10 minutes. However, to my dismay, it took much longer and extremely intrusive questions were asked. Despite this, the interviewers talked in a professional manner and used vocabulary that reflected their knowledge.

    Informal, not very informative. DON was not a good interview and did not explain the type of clientele, the type of care they received, the risks of being harmed physically by the clientele. It wasn't informative in regard to position or expectations from the management.

    Executive Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Crestwood Behavioral Health (San Francisco, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by a Crestwood's recruiter/Regional Director about an Executive Director position, it was a completely impersonal call in which I'm not sure if the person even properly introduced himself. A time was discussed to speak during the next week. I agreed to interview and just as I was expecting the call, I had someone knocking at my door. 2 minutes later, I go to my phone, and I had missed the interview call. What really bothers me was that there was no message, I checked my email...nothing. When I tried to call the number back, it was a general voicemail so I could not track down who was calling. I'm a little relieved I did not spend the time interviewing with a company that would be so impersonal...and probably just crossed my name off a list. Thank you for saving me what I imagine is an awful experience working for your company, Crestwood Behavioral Health
