    Server Supervisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Menomonee Falls, WI) in July 2014.

    Interview

    They were so desperate for workers that there wasn't really a interview and paper work was filled out three days later after I started working. They had several people quit on them so I started right away with no type of training even though it wasn't needed because it was self explanatory.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement in April 2014.

    Interview

    I was hired to be the part time bus driver. During the interview I was told that I would be asked to "change a light-bulb once in a while." After the first day the maintenance head told me I should bring a set of clothing for "painting." I was then told by the c0-manangers that I needed to keep the coffee pots filled and clean up those areas. I have done, and will not do anything that is not associated with driving or getting things at say a hardware store and bringing them back.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement in March 2014.

    Interview

    Filled out application online and included resume. First interview was over the phone, then an "in person" interview was scheduled about 2 weeks later. Met at a community just a few hours from home. Interviewed in one of the apartments at a kitchen table. Interviewer was great, very professional. Longer than most interviews. Was then offered a 3rd interview in Atlanta (I think) with the Regional or Area Manager.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Money. They have a "standard" amount they pay incoming managers. It would have resulted in a 50% pay cut for me. I couldn't believe how little they pay. Yes, you can get bonuses, but not enough to repay the lost income. The company offers you free room and board and 3 meals a day in the dining room, but for me it still wasn't enough money. It also did not seem "family friendly". We have to live on site and we have children, which I was fine with, but they were not. All four of us couldn't live in a 1 bedroom apartment. I think this is how they get around hiring people with children.
