    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ResCare (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    My company was taken over by Rescare Workforce Services, so I had to interview for the position that I already in with my company. The interview process went really quickly since Rescare didn't have a staff. The company sent in people to do the drug test. The interview was not particularly difficult. I did get they job and they have a very lengthy training process. It is not the greatest company to work for, they have lots of bells and whistles for their customers which makes your job more difficult.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ResCare.

    Interview

    Interview process is by the director who clearly has not looked at your resume based on the jumbled interview questions she is asking. That is disturbing. She asks what position you are applying for. Obviously, she didn't prepare and makes you think she's not very selective. Maybe that's why such a turnover. Many questions are situational--employee wise. Obviously, there is/are empoyee(s) that are "difficult"...
