How to Get Hired

We asked Benchmark Senior Living for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Regardless of the role at Benchmark, we hire first for heart and culture fit, and then train for excellence.  Our associates must be qualified to do the work but it is just as critical that they embody our values:  Called to Care, Better Together and Be the Benchmark.  If you are Called to Care, you are passionate about connecting with people and enjoy working for purpose driven organizations who care for and about others.  Someone who values the unique perspectives of others, appreciates a team challenge, and believes we are Better Together than apart, is a welcome addition to Benchmark.  And our associates must place a high value on excellence, always striving to be even better than we are today, so that we can truly Be the Benchmark by which all others are measured.
