IT Sourcing & Procurement Contracts Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Allegheny Health Network in February 2014.
Interview Details – Fantastic Management! I am not even upset that I was rejected because of how amazing it feels to be excited about a potential employer. This is the organization for me. There were three different phone interviews that lasted three months because of the holidays. After three months, I was invited to meet two of the Procurement Directors who were very nice to meet. They said I passed so they then welcomed me past the locked doors and I got to meet their supervisor (VP Operations), who I could tell immediately was an awesome person to work for. He ended up being prior military, which is similar to me. I passed his test and had someone from the Talent Acquisition Office set up a meeting to meet the executives of the proposed program office assignment for the position. For some reason the recruiter's meeting invite was for 10:00 AM when the interview was really for 1:00 PM so I got to show up twice and look like an idiot. Anyway, I interviewed with two different CIOs at the same time and they were pretty cool as well. Unfortunately, I got a call from the VP Operations who delivered the bad news. He told me they were considering me for the same type of position with a different department but I have not heard anything yet. Either way, I really liked everyone and plan on applying to future openings. This role was not a management role and I feel that it could have possibly sent me in the wrong direction had I been offered the position. I was blown away by how comfortable I was at times like I already fit in. There were times that I had to remind myself not to get too relaxed. The competitor(s) are in trouble because this is an organization stacked with top talent. I am confident that I will be chosen for one of the next one or two openings that are posted.
Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The most difficult experience for me was the nervousness I had because of how bad I wanted the job. I was not used to liking a company as much as I did Highmark. Their procurement team is exceptional and highly recommend applying because it was refreshing, at least for me, to be able to be myself and feel like I could go to work on a daily basis feeling like everyone is on the same team with the same mission and let us all have fun together accomplishing our mission. I know that sounds corny but I really take my work seriously and enjoy doing it, except when I am in a situation like I currently am where I feel like management is taking advantage of my drive and dedication.

Director Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allegheny Health Network in February 2013.
Interview Details – Interview process consisted of one phone screen with the HR recruiter and one in person interview with the hiring manager. The entire process seemed very rushed. (This should have been a red flag). I did not met anyone else in person prior to being hired. There was not much discussion of the real duties of the position.
Interview Question – The interviewers did not seem to have a clear idea of what the ideal candidate for this position would be. As a result, many questions seemed to be irrelevant. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The offer negotiations were all done over the phone and were conducted in a somewhat unprofessional and sloppy manner. The initial offer was insulting low, though they did come up to an acceptable level.

Interview Details – About three and a half months after I applied for the postion, I was contacted by a Practice Manager to interview. There was no phone screening or any interaction with HR. The Practice Manager was pleasant, but didn't actually ask me any questions about my skills or experience during the interview. She mostly talked about the position and asked if I was interested.
