    Caregiver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Sacramento, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. There were 6 of us, and we were asked (individual) questions based on what was written on our resume; basically it was to clarify any questions they had about it. They also gave us scenarios that we had to provide an explanation about what we would do. The interview was only about 30 minutes. At the end, I was taken back to the office and was immediately offered the job and actually shadowed someone on that same day. During their interviews, they're looking at your personality and character over everything! You have to have a personality that fits the company (fun, loving, caring, passionate, hardworking, maybe even silly, enthusiastic, and jovial).

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Salt Lake City, UT) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend for the job and so after i submitted my resume I got an interview immediately. You interview with the coordinator who asks you different, random, questions off a list they have. Then they sit down with the Lead Care Managers and ask them if they think you are what they are looking for. If you get the job they usually call you back that same day with an offer.

    Assisted Living Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lenexa, KS

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Lenexa, KS).

    Interview

    Took three weeks to get a call for an interview, was told I would receive a call within one week over whether I’d be invited to round 2 of interviews. Week passed, no word. I called last week to follow up on their decision as this is a career move position and deserves follow up. It has now been three weeks and no call. Just disappointed in the lack of follow-up and leaving applicants in the dark, even with applicant follow-up.
