    Deputy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ipswich, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hallmark Care Homes (Ipswich, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I arrived at the home early to prepare for the interview and look around the home. I waited 20 mins to be seen which didn’t give me a good impression to start off with at first. From my own personal experience with interviews they are usually done on time and I understand the manager was busy.
    The manager had difficulty finding a suitable interview room so in the end we sat in the dining area where another resident was sitting also. The business manager was also present and they were all friendly and welcoming as soon as the interview began which cleared all the negativity I once thought.
    I felt confident because I had researched the company and the interview lasted over an hour. I was informed at interview that if successful there would be a second stage interview with the regional manager and a questionnaire to complete which was a surprise to me at first because this was not what I was expecting but agreed to proceed with the initially interview anyway. Few hours after the interview I received a call from the agency that I interviewed well and would like to call me back in for second interview with the regional manager on Tuesday 3/10/17 and would confirm time. I had been chasing up the second interview confirmation time all last week and excuses I kept getting were they can’t get hold of the regional manager. I then found out today 2/10/17 that the second interview is not going to happen as the regional manager wanted someone with deputy manager experience already and had made assumptions about my ability based on my CV and LinkedIn profile. Very frustrating to be told your having a second interview and then to do a U turn. They should have at least given me an interview and if the regional manager still felt the same about me but also recognise that I have relevant skills that are transferable then a trainee deputy manager should have been considered as I understand hallmark care homes are very pro development.

    Senior Carer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wokingham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hallmark Care Homes (Wokingham, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Sat down in a closed off lounge area (the family room it was called) and chatted away with the clinical care manager and the dementia lead, felt really relaxed as they were such friendly people and didn't mind when I skipped over my words because of nerves or went blank under pressure! My interviewers assured me I could take my time and I felt comfortable when I said I didn't understand a question or if I told the truth that I didn't know about something.

    Negotiation

    I was offered 33 hours but this was not enough for me, I asked for higher and was offered 44 which I got as soon as I asked. I was able to start whenever I wanted (within reason, I had a holiday booked after my old job and before this one) no confusion, always available to answer questions at anytime , manager was very accommodating
