I moved my Father Frank into Desert Winds nearly a year ago, the entire staff goes out of their way to make sure my Father feels at home. Debora the Director along with Gerry and Kathy have been a blessing to my Father who is suffering from Parkinson's. I live not too far away so I'm stopping by from time to time for visits and his smile lets me know he is where he should be.

Desert Winds Assisted Living advertised for a Marketing Director on a major job board (Indeed). I submitted my resume. I was called in for an interview and was told that they were "keenly" interested in meeting with me. I have a Master's in business, healthcare experience, etc... I took four hours out of my day to prepare for this interview, get groomed and dressed, drive there. I was ushered into a room occupied by one young lady and an older, Eastern European or German, lady. I handed the older lady my folder of three resumes, cover letter, reference letters. The older lady said: "So, what can you do for us?" I briefly went over my education, experience and postulated a few ideas for them. The older lady said: "We are really just looking for 'somebody' to lease our apartments." She asked what my salary requirements were; I told her. I then asked what the salary requirements were for this position and the older lady said: "A lot less." I asked her for a specific and, believe it or not, this old German broad refused to tell me. Then she told me that I was "over qualified." She reiterated that the organization was really just looking for "'somebody' to leasssse the apaaaaaartments". I said to her: "So you're really seeking a Leasing Agent. You should have put that as the Title and Job Description." I reminded her what the median salary range was for a Marketing Director in Maricopa County and stated that this could have all been avoided by a more effective job listing and interview screening process. The older lady said: "I am sorry that you were 'inconvienenced' but this is our process." She said 'inconvenienced' in a sarcastic manner. I replied back: "So, this is your 'process'? Just bring people in for one job and then tell them it's really another?" I took back me resumes and left. I would like to note that the old, German or Eastern European, lady was not a friendly person at all. The young lady acted embarrassed about the whole thing but remained silent. All in all, a joke of a job interview on many levels. A total waste of my time. This probably is an indicator of how much they care for people.

Their customer service is horrible. The person who answers the phone doesn't sound like she even wants to do her job. I was transferred all over the place and had to explain to them how to do their job. I wouldnt trust them with my parents or any other family member for that matter. Not perfessional at all.
