Every step of Caregiver recruitment comes with it’s own challenges, and the interview process is no different. 44% of Caregivers report they would turn down a job offer if they didn’t feel the interview went well. But that raises the question, what do Caregivers look for in an interview? We asked them, and it comes down to these “Critical 8” things to focus on when interviewing and hiring Caregivers.

  1. Start Dates
  2. Coworkers
  3. Training
  4. Patients
  5. Boss
  6. Stability
  7. Reviews
  8. Pay & Benefits

These are the most important things to cover when recruiting Caregivers and CNAs. By making sure to hit all 8 of these critical points of focus, you can answer your candidate’s questions and cover the topics that matter most to them.
