    Call Center Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Allegheny Health Network in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for an initial interview shortly after applying online. The interview with the Customer Service Manager went well. I wanted to wait until my job at my current employer ended with the call center closure. The Manager was receptive to this request. I was advised by the HR recruiter that I was top on their list for consideration. I contacted the HR manager when the call center I was working in closed. I was advised that I was to meet with two recently hired supervisors to discuss changes that were made in the AHN call center since I had interviewed. I clarified with the HR recruiter that this was a meeting, and not a second interview. I was assured it was a meeting to share information. When I met with the two supervisors who would have been my peers, this meeting turned out to be an additional interview. After the interview, I reached out to the HR recruiter and advised her that I thought that the "meeting" went well. She advised me that she should have results by the following week and would get back to me then. That was the last correspondence that I've received from anyone associated with AHN. I reached out to the recruited several times trying to get some sort of update, but was ignored each time. If I was not going to be offered the position that would be fine, just let me know. Very unprofessional conduct.

    IT Sourcing & Procurement Contracts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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.   Answer Question

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Allegheny Health Network in August 2012.

    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.

    I came back for second interview and was interviewed by pretty much everyone that worked in the office. Everyone was pleasant but the questions were repetitive.
