    Director, International Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care.

    Interview

    I applied at HomeInstead because we used their services for my grandfather and each and every interaction with the HomeInstead service and their employees was tremendous. In short, I was sold on the company well before I applied.

    I waited until the right opportunity opened up at HomeInstead. Ultimately, the head of HR actually suggested that I post for the position and she conducted the initial interview. It was a dialogue about the position, the HomeInstead mission, and her experience/background. She committed to scheduling additional interviews with the senior managers with whom I would be working with and/or supporting. I never heard from her again despite several calls and emails.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Evansville, IN) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I put in an application for Home Instead Senior Care in Evansville,IN online at snagajob.com. I was called the next day and asked a few questions about myself and the job I was applying for. During this call, an interview was set up for the next day. I went to the interview, where we talked about my availability, my experience, and my future both personally and with the company. The day after the interview, I was called and told I was hired and the orientation was the following Monday. I attended the orientation on Monday, and accepted the job I was offered.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you feel that you would be the one for the job?   1 Answer
    • Why do you think Home Instead Senior Care is a good business? And why do you think you would like working here?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my availability because I am not available on nights or weekends. If you are available in any way to work nights or weekends, I would do so because a weekend incentive is given and it is well worth it. But, if u cant, they will find you clients and make it worth while. This is a very rewarding job, regardless of the pay/ hours you receive.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Simi Valley, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I responded to a Craigslist ad for Home Instead Senior Care caregivers. Craigslist is full of caregiving jobs, at least around where I live. A couple days later one of the staff at the company emailed back with a time to interview. Six references were requested.

    The interview was in the conference room in their office. There was a video presentation of the values of the company and what the job as a caregiver entails. The interview was 1:1 with a staff member who became my supervisor. She asked about job history, work ethic, responsibility. I was given an option on whether or not I was willing to work with incontinent clients.

    There were opportunities for salary advancement in 50¢ increments based on use of in-house education material.

    Negotiation
