    Director, Quality Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare.

    Interview

    Contacted by company recruiter via LinkedIn to understand level of interest. After resume submitted, assigned to another recruiter for phone interview. The phone interviewer asked canned set of questions very quickly and didn't seem to care about answer at all. It was apparent the goal of the phone interview was for recruiter to provide a group of potential candidates without any duty to evaluate.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare (San Leandro, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    One of their talents acquisition managers contacted me that my resume and experience fits the jobs offered at Kindred. Too bad, the area he is handling is an hour away from me or another long term facility that I am not interested to apply to. He gave me the number of the recruiter in charge for the transitional care hospital I am interested in. I spoke with the recruiter and told me that my resume and qualifications are fit for the job that they are hiring for in the night shift. She scheduled me an interview with the CCO four days from the day we interviewed on the phone. During my interview with the CCO, I was asked about my nursing experiences (I have varied experience both in the US and outside the country). In the end, he told me he could not hire me or if he would, it would be a lot of job for him because my qualifications and credentials are not what they are looking for! It has been a waste of time for me to attend an interview, if only they have a more coordinated recruitment process. They would reach out to you to inform you that you are a fit for the role then on the actual interview process will tell you the opposite. Based on connections and colleagues who got hired and rejected, I am confused as to what really are the "credentials and experience" they are looking for.

    RN/Charge Nurse Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I attended a Hiring Event. I thought I would obtain more information about Kindred, chat with some of the managers, RNs, etc.. but actually was set up as interviews. I was lucky enough to interview with the Director of Nursing. She was so welcoming and open. I enjoyed our conversation. Because that is what it felt like: a conversation. It was easy. Yes, there were interview questions, as well as a test post completion of interview, but it was nothing at all what I'd expected. when I walked first walked in.

    All of the staff was cheery and happy to answer questions. I also received a tour of the facility and introduced to any managers, social workers, etc that were in the area.

    Home Health RN Case Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Towson, MD

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Towson, MD) in June 2017.

    Interview

    There were two clinical managers, very cordial. I received a signal though towards the end of the interview I was not a good candidate because the main interviewer began to fold my resume at two corners, then in half and continued to fold into a small rectangular. That was very interesting. Later that evening the recruiter sent me a very nice email my credential were very impressive but they were pursuing another candidate!

    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Went to a job fair/open house. Met with current job holder and corporate recruiter. Both made a lot of my qualifications and I was told by the recruiter to stay in touch; she would help steer my application through the process. I asked for a second interview to meet with my direct manager. Turns out no one at this location is permanent management staff; everything is in transition, which struck me as a red flag given that this is a completely new facility. I didn’t hear back from anyone after my second interview, except for an email response saying I wasn’t selected—for a position I didn't apply for. I have no idea now what went on behind the scenes and the web site still shows my application as active for the two positions I applied for.

    Interview Questions

    • So many questions about handling problem personnel; obviously there is a company sore spot. Very few questions about my clinical skills. Very little opportunity to ask detailed questions about the organization, benefits, etc. All I got is the job descriptions and pay rate for one of the positions. No health insurance coverage for 90 days. Not much of an incentive to jump on board with a Fortune 500 company.   Answer Question
