    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Burnaby, BC) in December 2014.

    Interview

    incompetent and ask questions that are against BC labor laws, use online process to discourage any one who is qualified in the field and can work elsewhere. On line interview was more like psychological profiling, telephone interview repetitive and superficial- wondered are they checking to see if I am a foreign worker desperate for a job

    Interview Questions

    • how old are you- no real scheduled hours or pay- who would work for them under these conditions-?the desperate foreign worker that's who- this should be illegal in the health care field I guess any one can call themselves a senior home care company   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    realized that this job exploits seniors and would exploit workers they also try to get workers from foreign countries to take these jobs-they won't complain -they just want to live in BC

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Omaha, NE (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview, then a face-to-face. Everyone there is incredibly nice and they make you feel very comfortable. The company is founded by a very humble couple and they have successfully distributed their kind mentality to the entire staff. It is a rare find in the world of today.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Murrieta, CA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was actually over the phone. I had applied online and received an email asking me to call to set up a phone interview. Be warned, be prepared for you call, because instead of setting up an interview, she actually started the phone interview right then. The phone interview is the first screening, then if they'll like you, they will ask you for a face to face. It wasn't one on one, but actually a little panel, two women questioned me about my application, my phone interview and asked a few questions and then explained the job. After the interview, they went outside and talked it over, and then told me they wanted me, and had me take the drug test then and there.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Home Instead Senior Care.

    Interview

    Group Interview, very unperson-able, treats you like your inferior and unintelligent. There isn't much more to say besides this. You watch an orientation video for about 2 hours and then the management asks a couple routine questions and lets you know that there will be drug testing and a criminal back-round check. They then let you know if you got the job they will give you a call back. Leaving there with really no idea how long or when they will call, when I was walking out I made it a point to shake the manager's hand (I was the only one) and she called me by the wrong name.

    Negotiation

    none
