    Administrator In Training Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gig Harbor, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Extendicare (Gig Harbor, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Informal, was able to get an interview because I was friends with a subordinate. Routine questions, was looking for responses that were really well-informed. Wanted someone who was willing to work 70 hour weeks on a consistent basis for the first few years. Don't apply for this position unless you are able to put all other things in your life on hold for a few years... unfortunately, that was not an option for me in the end.

    RN Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Prior Lake, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Extendicare (Prior Lake, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    HR representative called me after seeing my resume on a job site. I had not been looking for a Supervisor position but after speaking with her, I was intrigued. I had been a staff RN working only in hospitals for about 16 years up to that point and the job offer was at an Assisted Living and Memory Care facility that was over an hour commute one way. After the phone interview, I was asked to follow up with a 1:1 at the facility (I did) and it was casual and comfortable. With the exception of the commute, I immediately felt this job was something I could and wanted to do.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Hiring was done on a demand basis, and not on candidate qualifications.They felt they needed a warm body to fill a position-not a qualified person who can speak English and know the customs of the job and community. They gloss over important areas like education, skills, personal qualities, is this person trustworthy, can this person show integrity and grace and be able to stay away from their I-Pad phone and be dedicated to the patients instead of degenerates who throw out medications like candy on Halloween and sit at the desk and talk of their social lives while the patients wait for
    service. Expect long wait times before any word is handed down about employment, and don't expect wage negotiation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Extendicare (Vancouver, WA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The process began with a tour of the facility and introduction to some staff and residents. The atmosphere is very fast-paced at all hours with staff smiling when they greeted the residents and each other. The Director of Nursing (DON) was kind, smiled a lot, and described her position and intentions for the nursing staff. She shared her vision of care and gave some highlights of her plan achieve the goals reminding me that nurses are leaders and she expects her nurses to give "a little something extra with each patient interaction."

    Not much negotiation, however look out for the pay differences between part and full time. Choose part time if you have medical insurance from elsewhere, because part time offers more money.
