    I worked at Historic Restoration full-time


    Nice people, goal oriented. The whole company is on the move.


    The whole company is on the move. You've got to spend too much time talking to other employees about the company to find out what is going on when you need to be focused on the task at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new employees. It's a tough job, and a lot of them have no idea what they're getting into.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Historic Restoration in January 2009.


    Chaos! Interviewed for one position, considered & interviewed for another (then another) finally hired for a position completely unrelated to what I interviewed for. While waiting to be hired, original hiring manager was fired and replaced, then HR Dept lost my paperwork so had to wait for that to be completed again. Then the Regional for that property quit, so had to wait for the new regional to come on board for my hire approval. New hiring manager wanted to hire someone else (her stepdaughter, no less), but VP intervened on my behalf. Interviewed with 4 hiring managers (2 regionals and 2 community), and before I even began working one of those regionals and one of those community managers were no longer with the company, so the process took forever.

    Interview Questions

    • Very few job specific questions. No scenarios asked. Questions pertaining to expected pay rate, availability, etc were the main themes   Answer Question


    No negotiations at all. I was originally offered a LOT more than what the final offer of employment stated. However I had been strung on for so long regarding my hire date, and I had turned down so many other offers believing HRI's promises, that I was in financial straits by the time I was hired and just happy to work. My advice would be just to run away from this company. I have been here for 18 months now and every meeting is full of new faces, the turnover is THAT bad. I am currently looking for a new job, and cannot wait to leave this horrible place.
