    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement.

    Interview

    The hiring/interview process is simple, if you are comfortable with a boiler room mentality then you will do great. That is what they are looking for. Be prepared to role-play, be confident, dress professionally. The hiring process takes about a week; this is mostly because of the background check.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no truly difficult or unexpected questions, it is a very straight forward interview.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase is nonexistent.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement.

    Interview

    The process was initiated by a recruiter. After passing the recruiting "sniff test", I was interviewed by the RSL (Regional Sales Leader). It was his enthusiam that prompted me to move to the next step - an interview with his boss, the RD (Regional Director). That was where a red flag waved but I chose to ignore it. The interview with the RD took less than 3 minutes - literally! (Strike 1). I read the reviews on Glassdoor and chose to ignore those - it couldn't be that bad, could it? (Strike 2). I spoke with a friend whose relative is a resident but did not heed negative input. (Strike 3). I accepted the position. What a mistake!

    Application

    I interviewed at Holiday Retirement in August 2013.

    Interview

    First an interview on Skype with Corporate Recruiter which was great. He was a good interviewer and sent me to an interview with the Regional Manager. That interview was very short and he hardly asked any questions. I didn't get an offer and was initially disappointed but the turnover is very high in my area and across the country. Plus, some people I respect have very negative things to say about this organization so maybe it is best I didn't get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Amarillo, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacts you by phone & interviews you, then another person interviews you by phone, then your soon to be Regional Director interviews you on SKYPE...., then you are e-mailed by another person for background, witch took 9 days...., then when you accept the offer, 2 more people contact you from the HR department to plan travel, and training, etc....

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are elementary. Why would you want to work here? etc....   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Starting off great, but went downhill fast! I spoke to a total of 6 people throughout the entire process of getting hired. GIS is their background investigator. They made a mistake on my background for something that the courts waived. All in all, I decided to go to the County Clerks office to get a certified document saying that the charge was waived. Cost $15. And after 3 days was cleared for employment. The people are friendly, but took 30 days to go through the entire process. I initially accepted the job, but got fed up with all the hoo ha and ridiculous amount of people I had to talk to in order to take the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement in July 2013.

    Interview

    Got a call first from regional recruiter. They were very helpful and offered several regions to me as choices. Once I chose a region, then came the in person interview with regional manager. The company was very good about making that process happen easily for me. After that I received a written offer and just completed the necessary paperwork and background checks. Unfortunately, they hire and fire so much...that the process for them and the candidate is pretty seemless.

    Interview Questions

    • None..it was a 10 minute interview with regional manager.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Nothing. I was offered a base amount of salary plus commission. I was desperate so I took it and didn't negotiate. I found out later the salary was similar to others BUT the commission structure changed often and was taxed as a bonus so more than 50 percent was taken out in taxes each month. It really affects morale when you work hard to earn a commission and then it gets taxed more heavily than a standard pay rate! Big mistake for Holiday Retirement!
