    Prep Cook Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    When I applied I hadn't heard back from them in about four to five months so I called them and they had lost my application. So I had to go back in and reapply. That should have been my first clue to get a different job. The interview was very easy. They asked if I had ever worked in a kitchen before. Asked some questions on my time management skills and how I got along with others. The whole thing took all of around five minutes. Then they hired me. It was like they were desperate to get new people hired.

    Interview

    I've enjoyed the process of phone conferences and Skype calls so far. We've been invited to visit a community for a first hand look at a fully functional facility and to meet with current management staff. It was a good experience that was conducted in a very professional manner.

    Enrichment Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Concord, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    This was a very unprofessional interview. I was interviewed by two people, both of whom kept asking the other if they had any questions right from the start, like neither of them had bothered to prepare any questions and were hoping they could rely the other person to have prepared. They cut me off when I answered their questions, and then they didn't give me the opportunity to ask questions of my own. This was a particularly strange experience to have a retirement community. Everyone knows that if the staff at a retirement home is disengaged and won't answer your questions, it's not the community where you want your parents to live. Why they would present that image of the community, even to a job applicant, was confusing.

I got hired within two days. ALSO I met with a some nice people so I expected it to be classy and friendly. It turned out to be the opposite of that.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wimberley, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Wimberley, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Holiday Retirement is a grinding sales organization that uses dupes called "managers" to fill in the work gaps left by hourly employees who do not show up. Your job first and foremost is booking sales tours and achieving occupancy. Statistically speaking, you'll be gone withing a year.

    Consequently, your interviews might be perfunctory. Ours was. We interviewed with the recruiter and - after being stood up FIVE TIMES - with the Regional Director by phone only and were hired after that phone call. We reported to Dallas only about a week later.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Vero Beach, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The screening interview with Brooke was very enjoyable! She interviewed my husband and I together (this is a team position for two people), which was a unique and rewarding experience. She was a pleasant and responsive interviewer. This company seems to look for a certain energy in candidates, which made the interview kind of fun. We can't wait to go on to the next step!

    Interview Questions

    • One question that struck me as important was how long Michael and I have known each other, if we worked together successfully before, and what our dynamic is like. This is a live-on-property position, so these details are very important to Holiday.   2 Answers
