    Director of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Administrator called to schedule the interview. He left a voicemail as I missed his call. I returned his call within 30 minutes. He called back 2 days later. He needed me to "come in tomorrow. I'm trying to squeeze everyone in tomorrow. I need this done before Monday." Ummm, okay. When I arrived to the interview, I was shocked to see the Administrator in jeans and a baggy t-shirt. I arrived about 20 mins early. The DON was supposed to be a part of the interview but she never made it. The Administrator actually had my resume mixed up with another candidate. He was asking me questions about a background that did not belong to me in the least bit. Needless to say, I guess he had already found the right candidate before I got there. What a waste of gas. Of course I didn't hear back from him. Nice guy though. Not as professional as I personally like.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Told me about his background. Started as a CNA. Went to nursing school. Been Administrator maybe 4 years. Cool story bro.   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living (Willowbrook, IL).

    Interview

    Interview process takes a long time. Phone interview, group interview, personal interview with potential manager, personal interview with executive director of building. Other positions require an interview with the regional manager. My whole process took over three months to finish based off of the building's managers/executive director's schedules. All questions were based off of past experiences in a work place.
