Resident Care Coordinator Interview

Resident Care Coordinator
Detroit, MI (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Sunrise Senior Living in November 2010.

Interview Details Didn't care about my background as much as the executive director cared about my personal background. Lots of false promises of advancements. Person didn't have much experience in conducting interviews. Too many secondary interviews as well. Plus separate meeting with regional director who lies about advancements even more. Was disappointing interview experience that should have warned me about what I was getting into.
