    Environmental Service Aide Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bedford, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at HealthSouth (Bedford, TX).

    Interview

    A recruiter called me scheduled me for an interview. Went in for the interview on the 12 and the interview went well. They said they will be calling me back today to let me know if I have the job or not which I believe that I do have like I said the interview went well. As I walk in the building I see that everybody was very comfortable and just conversating with each other and I feel like they are all one big family. So I guess I would really like to work at a place like that especially if I had that feeling.
