    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Five Star Senior Living (Roseville, CA).

    Interview

    7 different interviews with 1) Massachusetts recruiter set up local interview. 2) current manager 1:1 (resigned her position before process was completed). 3) Panel interview with management team. 4) Phone interview with regional management team (1 participant not present) 5) Individual interview with temp building manager. 6) Second interview and apology from Massachusetts corporate office for inability to get their act together. 7) Interview with regional sales representative on site. Never heard from any of them again, not even a "thank you for applying." The manager resigned did call to recruit for an open position at his/her new facility. I washed my hands of the entire mess. STAY AWAY!!! I landed a full-time position with another company with better pay/benefits while these people were chasing their tails. I am nurse manager, not a sales representative.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Five Star Senior Living (Wilmington, DE) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process Interview process consisted of a phone screening and a face-to-face interview. The phone screening was conducted by the director and she seemed very nice and outgoing. The face-to-face interview was a mess. It was supposed to be a panel that consisted of the 13-person management team. Very disorganized. The managers came and went as the pleased during the interview. The questions were not organized and were all over the place. They asked repeat questions. Was told a decision would be made within 2 weeks and no one has bothered to call, email or send a letter. Common courteously to send some form of denial. I have not respect for companies that don’t provide updates.
