    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Emails were sent back and forth between the recruiter and I. I was then asked to prepare a statement before phone interview. Had a phone interview with the recruiter and was told that it went well. I then got an email stating that we had been pushed forward to the face to face interview and that I would have details by Friday. Then of Friday night I received an email stating that the region was full and that they weren’t reviewing and new applications. Which I don’t understand because my application had already been reviewed

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    The whole interview process seemed to be conducted by someone with "issues"...either they hated ther job or were drunk. We were called for a phone interview and they apparently forgot about it so we were then told to drive to a larger city nearby to meet with the RD. That went well and we were hired and told to drive to a city 1200 miles away for training. We were told we would be compensated for all expenses, within reason, of the training and the future moving our stuff to our future property. When all was said and done and we got to ur new property we were told that they compensate us only $1000.00. So we had to eat around $1700.00 right off the bat.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you travel 1200 miles in your vehicle for training, drive back in 2 months, and then drive and move your stuff to your new property, even though we have 4 properties within 100 miles of here?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (McKinney, TX) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Sent in both applications and heard from a screening company the following day to schedule a quick, basic question-and-answer first interview via phone where both my husband and I needed to be present. Then met with a recruiter - it was in another city in Texas so the company direct billed our hotel stay. Met with our recruiter at a community so got a feel for Holiday. General questions... the recruiter actually suggested we look here on Glassdoor for feedback and told us some things would be real, legit feedback and some would be angry former employees looking to vent, but that we should be able to determine which was which. This was a Friday. Heard back on Tuesday to schedule a phone interview with a regional director. Was hired and on a plane to a two-week long sales class, all expenses paid, within two weeks of submitting applications. Was at our first community within a week following the end of sales class.
