Data Analyics Consultant Interview

Data Analyics Consultant

Interviewed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

Interview Details – Initial phone screening with HR followed by onsite interview with a Director and Manager. Laid back, low pressure interview. Straightforward SQL test at the end of the interview. Called back for second round interview with team members the next week. Interviewed with three separate team members, also laid back and low pressure. Received an offer a few days later.

Interview Question – Initial phone screening included many rapid fire questions about job experiences ("talk about a time you handled a difference of opinion with a coworker," etc. If you understand the position and why you want it, everything after was fairly easy.   Answer Question

Patient Care Technician Interview

Patient Care Technician
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in March 2009.

Interview Details – I would suggest to candidates to keep applying to get your name seen. I applied 5 times before they called me in. It is best to find out who the recruiter is and then send them a cover letter and resume. DONT FORGET to send a thank you letter after the interview. After all it helped me land the job. Firt the candidate interviews with the HR recruiter. If you do well they take you to the manager of where you want to work. If not, they tell you we will contact you (but they will not) and they tell the manager you weren't a fit.

Interview Question – What three words best descibe you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – PCTs do not get a negotiated pay. There are in the union and have set pay rate no matter how many years of service a person has.
