    Server Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Newberg, OR) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I walked into the office and asked the hiring manager if there were any openings. She had me fill out an application and asked me to wait after I was done for an interview. Once I finished filling out the application she brought me into the office and asked me when I wanted to start. She didn't even look at my application or ask me a single question. Granted, I did have a well liked employee go in and give me a good reference.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holiday Retirement (Portland, OR) in January 2014.

    Interview

    While Holiday Retirement interview processes varies wildly depending on the location/management, mine was exceptionally easy. I applied in-person and was hired soon after. They were short on staff and desperate. I didn't even get asked real questions besides what else I was doing with my time.

    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!

    Community Sales Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    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.

I could provide you with Pros about this job in the context of the structure of the company before the recent changes, but to attempt to list pros about the new structure would be dishonest. The only real pro I can list with any honesty is getting to know some of the residents who live at these communities. Every other aspect of this job will turn sour and any joy you can derive from it will be robbed from you.” – Full Review
