    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Birmingham, AL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and within 2 days,met with human resource once and was hired on the spot.The company requires a two day (16) hr, orientation training.Which was very helpful and gave you a feel for several office staff you will be in contact with, mainly. The second day is less classroom and more hands on training with several pieces of medical equipment used daily in the field. Overall the training did give you a sense of the job, yet each job is very differant, with specific to client needs and personalities.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Raleigh, NC) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I applied on-line and received a phone call within a week. Short interview over the phone and then scheduled a one-on-one interview.

A group of 5 were hired at the same time - all had a meeting about standards and policies and some basic caregiver info. Took "open book" tests about what we were taught, including for CPR and were each ushered into a room one at a time to see about setting up with a client, starting almost immediately.

    Interview

    Very thorough, as it should be. Clients are quite vulnerable, so it's understandable that discretion is needed in hiring the right person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Fort Collins, CO) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Contacted via phone and email which was excellent as I wasn’t able to answer the call while at work. Several questions pertaining to my ethics, patience level, etc. My original appointed interview went home ill and I interviewed with the manager. She asked if I was available for the second interview dates but I wasn’t given a time or asked to be there so I was unsure whether or not I was actually asked for the second interview or if she was just discerning my availability.
