    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ventas.

    Interview

    Initially applied for a different position. They had filled that position but provided a different position for me to apply. I had an initial interview and then 3 - 1 hour interviews during a separate visit to the office. The questions were fair and reasonable - primarily based upon my past experiences. I did not receive an offer - minimal feedback on what attributes did not align with their goals.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to describe my past experience and provide examples of handling different situations.   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I reached out to a member of HR in order to apply for a financial analyst position. The HR member replied back to me the same day saying that candidates who had applied earlier were being considered. I later saw the same position I had applied for via email get posted to LinkedIn, at exactly the same time I was told other candidates were being considered. I would've appreciated if the company was open with me, and honestly told me my qualificatiosn didn't match. I thought it was handled pretty unethically.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ventas (Chicago, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Contacted by a staffing agency who found my LinkedIn profile through my network of contacts and professional recommendations as PM for complex projects in Fortune 500 space. Met in-person with owner of the staffing agency and one of his associates to vet my appearance & demeanor and background & qualifications prior to client presentation. Agency discussed the position with Ventas, provided me more details about the company and coached me on Ventas Interview process. Approximately a week later, I had phone screen with the hiring manager who went in-depth about the company, leadership, culture, etc. and provided the good, the bad and the ugly of working for Ventas. Manager and I seemed to hit it off pretty well having similar experiences working on projects in both waterfall and agile environments. Hiring manager was very nice and asked if I wanted to proceed with the Interview process after hearing potential cons (e.g. trying to grow a PMO in an unstructured, demanding & fast-paced environment). I agreed to move forward. A week later, I was scheduled for phone screen with a staffing consultant also commonly referred to as a 3rd party talent acquisition specialist. I was briefed prior to the call that it was part of the process and the conversation would focus on personality ("looking for the right fit") rather than background and experience. I've been through my share of similar phone screens and this one ranks higher on my list as a complete waste of time. At the end, I was advised Ventas did not even have any open requisitions for project manager positions until after the New Year. I'm irritated a company would reach out to me and waste my time versus if I actually sought this company out and applied. Very amateur and bad reflection on brand.

    Corporate Finance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ventas.

    Interview

    Impressive company, but the interview process seemed like they don't have everything together from a hiring standpoint. I was contacted by a recruiter that I would be a good fit for the position and the responsibilities seemed very much aligned with what I was looking for with my next position. They had me talk with their internal recruiter on the phone and then immediately take a 1 hour timed excel test, which was not too difficult (time constraint was hardest part). After that, they immediately wanted me to come in for three in-person interviews. The schedule was completely messed up. However, I felt very good after the interview and they called me back to come in the very next day to meet with the CEO and other people in the group. Granted the CEO is very busy, I spent a half hour waiting in the conference room before someone walked in then the CEO walked in. I felt good after the second round interview. However, the Company disappeared and never gave me feedback for about a month. I've never felt so good about an interview/company and fit than this to eventually be turned down. Overall, the Company stressed that the only want the 'perfect fit' and they won't rush things, so my feeling is that they are willing to rip through interviews left and right with as many candidates as they want, which in my opinion is not right or professional at all. Very unimpressed about the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Ventas (Louisville, KY).

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiting agency a year ago. Ventas exec gathered resumes and no interviews were given until 9 months later. 2 hour phone interview with hiring manager and then an in-person (out of state) interview with 4 executives. Waited for a month to find out they weren't hiring any of their top 3 candidates but starting over. I would have loved to work for them but they didn't make an offer.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ventas (Chicago, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter. Before my interview, I received an extremely detailed job description. I told the recruiter that no one person could handle all described. I was convinced to give the company a shot. Interview was unimpressive. I gave all information requested but never heard back from anyone. Again, not impressed

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions but company uses very dated interview /hiring process (a paper application asking for identity information prior to offer?). You get what you pay for.   Answer Question

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ventas (Chicago, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I did an initial phone interview, then 2 in-office interviews for 2 hours each to be an Executive Assistant of a team at Lillibridge, the subsidiary of Ventas. I was told that they were excited about me and wanted me, but they needed to restructure first (they were moving floors). They checked my references, had me take computer skills tests, did a background and credit check, etc. Repeatedly I was told "2 more weeks", and nothing ever came of it. Finally, I was asked to come back in and interview with another team, this time at Ventas, to make sure we "clicked" before they offered me a job. I came back in for a 2.5 hour interview with 4 new people. 3 days later I was told that everyone liked me personally, but did not think I was qualified. So, after a good 8 hours of interviewing, and a lot of wasted time (months thinking that I was going to get an offer), that was that! I thought it was very unprofessional, rude, and confusing. If I was not qualified, they should have never asked me back. I would not want anyone else to have to go through the hassle I did or endure the frustration after false hopes!
