I applied online – interviewed at Alexian Brothers Medical Center (Elk Grove Village, IL) in August 2014.
Several interviews, was told I wouldn't be able to do the job. How can someone tell you what you are capable of? Wasted my time going in for 4 hours to observe and still was denied the job. Seek other places of employment. They send you thru too much for so little pay
- Was told what I was capable of by someone who has never seen me work a say in their life. 1 Answer

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Alexian Brothers Medical Center (Elk Grove Village, IL) in April 2012.
Lets begin by saying that ABMC is a bad company to work for. ABMC is highly disorganized and besides a very "basic" paycheck, they need to be avoided at all cost. ABMC does not care about their employees. They are the typical big business - if you could work for free, it would be allowed. They will string you along, lie to you and take advantage of your time and talents. Now lets begin with the horrible and unethical interview process.
As a recent inhouse, job transfer, candidate to critical care, I completed a phone screening. Then I went to a face-to-face interview, and finally the infamous job shadow (which was a total waste of my valuable time). I was told that everything went well and that they liked my qualifications. Now here comes the total garbage that ABMC loves to put out. They said that they needed one week to review and that they would let me know the results. After being stressed out and lose of sleep, I became proactive and contacted them. I was told that they would decide in another week. Again, I waited and contacted them again. So guess what they said they need an additional 4 days to decide. This was Tuesday and as of today I received the ABMC infamous denial email.
ABMC loves to take advantage of people. There are so many disgruntaled employees, but people have learned not to say anything or to stress their opinion. I am a part-time employee, but I work over 60 hours per week. I have approached them on serveral occasionals asking for full-time status. With that status comes additional benefits and based on financial reasons, full-time status is what society recognizes. Their response is its not in the budget. In addition, ABMC will not inform you about their call-off system. To save money, Alexian will call you off on multiple occasions even though your scheduled to work To save money they contact you with the axe and tell you not to come to work. Now if you budget a certain income level to support your family and they do this -- that is not good.
I could go and on, but I dont want too bore you.
AVOID Alexian Brothers Medical Center at all cost. They will ruin your life, over work you and leave you high and dry. In addition they love to understaff their departments. So if your ready to be treated like a slave apply.
