    I have been working at Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with a purpose, lots of opportunity for community involvement, training and mentoring opportunities for clinical staff, happy and satisfied residents and a supportive leadership team. I have a very capable administrator who works closely with the nursing team to ensure quality and satisfaction. Overall a very friendly group of people to see and be with on a regular basis.

    Cons

    It's hard to lose residents due to passing away or if they transfer back home...easy to get very attached to residents.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rounding with your residents and staff. Keep up community involvement like charity work and offering the annual Easter Dinner.

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roseville, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society (Roseville, MN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Had an interview with HR Manager and Sales Consultant. Later a second interview with the Executive Manager. The Sales Consultant asked most of the questions with the HR manager adding thoughts if she deemed necessary. Questions were very wordy and hard to follow, sometimes going on for minutes without an actual question being asked. Sales Consultant seemed condescending rather than helpful or inquisitive. Second interview with Executive Manager went well, short and sweet. She did an overview of what the job was and the qualifications. I was offered the job on the spot at second interview.
