I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Home Instead in December 2013.

Director, International Interview

Director, International

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Home Instead.

Interview Details I applied at HomeInstead because we used their services for my grandfather and each and every interaction with the HomeInstead service and their employees was tremendous. In short, I was sold on the company well before I applied.

I waited until the right opportunity opened up at HomeInstead. Ultimately, the head of HR actually suggested that I post for the position and she conducted the initial interview. It was a dialogue about the position, the HomeInstead mission, and her experience/background. She committed to scheduling additional interviews with the senior managers with whom I would be working with and/or supporting. I never heard from her again despite several calls and emails.

Care Giver Interview

Care Giver
Highland Village, TX (US)

The process took a day - interviewed at Home Instead in April 2012.

Interview Details They hand you a bunch of paperwork to fill out and when you are finished they then ask you questions about why you would be good for the position. Typical interview questions.

Interview Question – Many say care giving is a thankless job to have, what is your position on this assertion?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They offered me eight dollars an hour, no benefits, no guarantee of hours, no compensation for gas/travel, no PTO, and also wanted me to do 2 hours of training unpaid. I asked if I got my CNA what I would be paid, and they would increase my hourly wages to 9 an hour.
