    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Wilmette, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Called me in for interview I used to work at other Sunrise location. Did all my paperwork. Passed my physical, tb tests,drug tests. Kept telling me we didn't put you in the system yet. Gave me name tag. Kept saying they would call me. Never did. My supervisor at other Sunrise gave me great reference. So what's the problem? Waited over a month to finish this hiring process . When I asked about the schedule and hours I would work I got a nasty attitude from the executive director. How unprofessional and sleezy! Take your job and shove it!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went in for a group interview but I was the only person to show up therefore, I had a one on one. Everything went well and the interviewer wanted me to come back the next day for a one on one interview with the director of the center. I was told that i would be called with a time for the next day interview which never happened. I called several times and was finally told to come in on another day at my leisure which really did not impress me at all. Seems very unprofessional to me to tell someone that you are going to make it a point to call them back that day and never do so. In a care giving job, there must be a trust established that one will do what they said they would do and when management fails right off the bat in this, it brings discouragement.
