How to Get Hired
We asked Watermark Retirement Communities for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We created talent acquisition interview worksheet to ensure we are achieving the right fit. The worksheet questions determine a candidate's past experiences and behaviors and offers interviewers a good sense of a candidate's ability to embrace and fit in with the Watermark culture. The questions are to best determine a person’s ability for diversity and inclusion, decision making, leadership abilities and job specific skills. Our interview tools also include the Hartman Value Profile to unveil values and personalities and then generate cultural based interview questions to assess their ability to fit in the respectful, inclusive Watermark Culture.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We seek candidates who are eager to explore and share what makes them thrive and who learn, grow and play every day and who don't let fear or "the way things have always been" stand in their way of making a difference. We look for associates who "play big" and who see that within each challenge or "breakdown" lies an opportunity for a breakthrough and steady, continued improvement. We know that when we assemble a team of diverse individuals with an innovative, pioneering spirit, who want to be part of a supportive culture and contribute to an abundance of opportunities to thrive, breakthroughs occur and amazing things happen.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We look for and encourage creativity, curiosity, diversity and innovation across the board. Watermark communicates to candidates our commitment to qualified (and as appropriate, credentialed and licensed associates. We use background checks and screenings to ensure a proper fit. We are always on the look-out for extraordinary Registered Nurses, Sales Directors and Directors of Nursing, as these can be the most challenging positions to fill.
