    Concierge Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wayne, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Wayne, NJ).

    Interview

    I was hired on the spot. I was asked if i knew how to answer a phone and if I would be available to start as soon as possible since they had just fired the previous concierge. Three others quit right after getting hired which should have been a red flag. More that 30 different employees have come and gone that same month.

    Business Office Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Columbia, MD) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Started off with a brief phone screening, where they ask a couple of questions. For instance, what are your goals and what do you know about the community/company. If they like you they invite you to an in-person interview. This part is more behavioral questions and they look to see your answers. Depending on the job they may have you do a 2nd in-person interview with the regional person.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your goals? What do you know about the community/company? Name a time where you made a mistake and how you corrected it? When was a time you went above and beyond with a resident?   Answer Question

    Certified Nursing Assistant CNA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainview, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Plainview, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online and was invited to attend an interview (good). Lots of residents were sitting quietly in wheelchairs in the lobby (bad sign). No one was present at the reception desk or approached me (not good), so I had to find a member of staff who escorted me into a room where I waited for the interviewer who was 15 minutes late (red flag) and just asked me to tell her about myself.
    No specific questions asked about my background, nor was any tour of the facility provided (another red flag). Since no salary was mentioned (very bad), I enquired at the end my 'interview', she said that she couldn't give me an answer, but invited me back for a second interview.
    A few days later, I called before the 2nd interview and enquired about the salary. When told me that they couldn't discuss it over the phone and I postponed the interview. About an hour later, I received a rejection email, so no 2nd interview (Good!) :-)

    Part-Time Associate Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was incredibly disappointed with how disorganized and unprofessional the interview process was. I was contacted a month after my initial interview for a job shadowing and then had a phone interview a week later and was told I would be given a formal job offer soon. However, the formal job offer did not reflect what had been discussed in interviews. After bringing this to their attention, it took over a week for them to respond that the changes would remain and on top of that, there was an additional change in how the hours would be scheduled. All this three months after the initial interview when I had been told something different.

    Interview Questions

    • Share an experience in which I had to work with a difficult colleague.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in February 2018.

    Interview

    Met with Ms. Marina Cruz who was very friendly and nice. They really needed a night shift nurse asap, so she just told me straight forward what to expect, and what I would need to do to prepare. I have no experience, but she was willing to train me. After the interview, she gave me a tour of the facility, and introduced me to the staff. Overall the experience was great.
