    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for a one on one interview with the lady who'd be my direct boss. A couple days later I was called to set up a second interview - this time with the sales manager (again), regional marketing coordinator and the operations manager. At the end of that interview they invited me to meet the team. Meeting the team was bascially allowing everyone a chance to interview me. A fee days later I was contacted with a job offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview Details

    A couple of phone interviews and one face to face. Surprised that I didn't get to meet the team ahead of time. Now I know why, since they would have told me to get out while I could. Hiring managers weren't really involved, and it was clear they just needed someone.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview Details

    Very short and simple. There were two people interviewing me, the executive director and marketing director. The questions were open ended and fairly easy to answer. The questions were about personality and morals. This company holds their employees responsible for having good values and being goal oriented. Over all, the interview is more personal the professional, in a good way.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you feel about death? This question took me off guard quite a bit.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Basically they asked if I wanted the job and when could I start. No negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Brookdale Senior Living.

    Interview Details

    Got called in for a group interview. Interviewer was 45 minutes late and unreachable over either of the two phones she finally walked in with (in addition to a smoothie in the other hand). Interviewer had the group pair up and interview each other and relate information back to her. Interviewer finally described the job description, which was not that of the position I applied for. When asked, the interviewer stated that specific hiring manager was not there that day and that she would call me later in the week. With drive time, wait time, and overall wasted time, the interview took 3 hours.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not impressed that I was more prepared for the interview than the interviewer and was frankly insulted when I got no explanation or apology.
