Care Manager Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (San Gabriel, CA) in September 2017.

Interview

I applied as a care manager and got called the next day to go in for a group interview. When I went in for the group interview it was only one other girl and myself. The supervisor asked us about our experience in our old job and she had us fill out a sheet of paper that asked questions about us and what schedule we wanted. An hour after the interview I got a call back to go in for a job preview. I'm still waiting to get a second interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Houston, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was a group interview with other people applying for a variety of positions. You just sit in the main lobby area & everybody talks about their past experience. You kind of have to shove yourself into the conversation to make yourself memorable. If they like you, in 3-4 days someone will call you for another interview. Always get there early because there is NO parking ever available on-site, so you have to park across the street at a gas station & walk really far to the building. Second interview was one on one with a manager. It was relaxed enough & fairly informal. A week later, I called to follow up, as the manager told me she'd contact me in 1-2 days, but never did. It took some effort to get in touch with her. I then had to shadow a current employee for 2 hours to make sure I was truly interested in the position. A couple days later, I was asked to come in to fill out paperwork then go take a drug and TB test. Then a background check a few days later. Overall it was a lengthy process but not a negative experience. They only have 1 person who does all the hiring paperwork & she's rarely there. It appears that's the bottleneck with the hiring process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was suppose to be a group interview but unfortunately I was late because I was nervous and overestimated how much time I had I showed up 30 mins late and I was luckily still given an interview one on one the manager did mention it was a pet peeve of theirs to not be on time so I had a rough start. Anyhow right off the bat I was told how much I'd be making, was told the responsibilities of the job, and how long the university training would take for the job itself which was said to be 2-3 weeks plus an hour preview to be able to watch the floor I was offered to work on and also given the opportunity to talk to the employees who already worked there. Luckily I took the initiative to come in 2 days later to talk to the actual hiring manager (I waited 30 minutes because the front desk lady went on break and forgot to tell the manager I was waiting for them) and we had a chat they asked me some questions and I guess they liked me because I got to do the preview. After that I came in twice to fill in paper work(I Suggest coming in with your updated resumes and references and past residences) , I had to get 2 tb tests done which took 2 weeks , I am currently waiting approval from another state that had a strict background checks -this is going on week 3 .[ I highly suggest sending thank-you notes to your interviewers as well as bringing in an updated resume with 5 references you will need them later so make copies. Also follow up if you really want the job ask if their is anything you can do on your part show them you want the job. Be sure to tell them how you found out about the job and tell them why your a good fit.] As for being in-between jobs if you don't have a job just be warned it can be a lengthy process because they are looking for qualified and quality employees I'm guessing that's why the process is so lengthy. In addition to this they make your references do a quick survey online or if they prefer not to do it they will call them.

    Interview

    Had a group interview then got called back a week later to do a job shadow. After that I had a phone interview about 3 days later and then I had ANOTHER interview a week later with the ED. The hiring process took forever for a job. It took me a little over a month to acutally start working there which was kind of annoying.
