    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Owensboro, KY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I filled out an application on-line and submitted it on a Thursday night and got called to schedule an interview the following Thursday. I interviewed on Tuesday and had my training on Wednesday and Thursday. The interview was very pleasant. I was asked about any previous caregiver experience, which I had none, but I wanted to get training and experience in the field since my mother-in-law has Alzheimer's. We talked about my other work and volunteer experience and then I got to choose what days and hours I would be available to work. I could even choose the gender of the clients (if I had a preference), smoking or non, even pets or no pets.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care in October 2016.

    Interview

    They called me on Thursday asked if I could come in Friday. I came in and it was a small office but very professional . they had me go sit in a office...there was many questions just going of my resume and experience...(8 years) she discussed the pay (highest paying place out of 4 places I interviewed at that week) she likes me and said that she would have to help me get registered with the state due the a new law. When she saw that I took it upon my self and did it already (a friend in home health told me )
    She was extremely excited because it just meant that a paper had to be done and submitted to the state changing my affiliation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care.

    Interview

    The company don't show what jobs or what position are available, but they required employee provide all the peronal information first. I think the company should describe what possition they need, in order that the employee can look up and decide which position is suitable for them and then they can give personal information for that company.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Rancho Cordova, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewers were friendly, but the process is intense because the company wants to ensure they are hiring the right people for the job. It began with a phone interview, online assessment, and then an in person interview. At the in person one, I ended up interviewing with two separate people. I believe they usually do call backs for this instead of all in one day, but I am not 100% sure.
