    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (El Paso, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Initial interview was a waste of time. I was in the office for 10 minutes and was asked about my availability, when I could start, and a brief summary of my experience. My second interview was much better; I was asked more in depth questions related to my experiences and why I wanted a position with them. I learned more about the company and got to know my employer. After accepting a position and completing a drug screen, there was an orientation day to review skills and get to know the company overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called the next day for an interview. I showed up early, had to fill out more paperwork and wait forever for someone to see me.
    The interview seemed very rushed. A lot of restrictions I listed (other jobs/work) were ignored after I was hired. My availability sheet is ignored as well. If you apply be sure to be strict and don't let them push you over. If you have restrictions or can only work certain hours, do not let them push you over and change it.
    This job seems to just interview and hire whoever applies. Doesn't get to know who the actual caregiver is.
