    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BJC HealthCare (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewer was ill prepared and unaware that interview was a one on one. Questions were more geared to me providing possible solutions to existing project decisions to be made rather than behavioral or technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BJC HealthCare (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied internally through myBJC job portal. The job description matched my skill set, so I sent in my application. I heard back about 2 weeks later asking to schedule an interview. I then received several emails cancelling and rescheduling my interview only to have it end up being back at the original time. When I arrived at the interview, I was asked about my experience. I explained my various jobs and accomplishments as they related to the job description I had read. That turned out to be my biggest mistake. The job description could not have been more inaccurate for the position. I was asked about experience that never showed up on the job description, but was apparently required. Since I did not have this experience, I was essentially told that I was not the right person for the job. The candor of the interviewers was nice in that it did not leave me wondering, but the process on the whole was extremely frustrating. I had essentially prepped for the wrong interview, as the job description posted by HR had nothing to do with what the hiring manager was looking for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BJC HealthCare.

    Interview

    Initially the recruiter was very timely and informative. She even went as far as to reschedule my interview when I could not make the first one. After I did go to the interview I heard nothing back.They were aware that I was already employed just looking for a new line of work, the interview ended up being a hour which only consisted of company history and previous job experience. It caused me to be late to my current job, but they never even called me to tell me whether I had it or not. I had even reached out but received no response.

    Interview

    Process involved a few question quiz on basic vitals and med terms followed by the actual interview. The interview was all situational based and they then told basics about what the job would be expected out of you if you get the position. Following the interview you went up to meet the lead nurse who would show you around and ask you if you have any questions.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at BJC HealthCare (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The arrangements for the interview were very concise and clear. Very nice office environment. Met with HR first and found the rep to be very personal and friendly. General questions regarding my current situation were asked and followed by a couple of questions like "give me an example of when you had a situation that turned out poorly and tell me what you learned from it." The next group had an HR Rep and an employee. They asked several questions like "tell me when you had this experience" with regard to systems, groups worked with, scope of your job, etc. The questions were meant to get an idea of how many people you managed, how large groups were that you worked with and other metrics in your past experience. The last group consisted of managers. It was the end of the day, the interview schedule had gone past the scheduled time and they appeared tired. They asked similar behavioral questions, similar to the previous group,. They also asked "how" you completed tasks, interacted with people, how you determined priorities. It seemed like they were waiting for a pre-determined answer and I could tell that my responses did not hit the keywords they were searching for. The interview exceeded the time allowed, so I did not get to ask the questions that I had planned to ask. Each group had a long list of questions and it was evident that they did not allow enough time to get through the list, nor did they allow enough time to probe deeper into some of the questions. The groups did not describe the position well nor did they describe what they needed in the position; this made it difficult to accurately target responses to show how my experiences would meet their needs. They preferred to ask all of the questions without giving much guidance, waiting for the candidate to say the magic words.
