    Negotiation Details
    They posted the job for $7,000 more than what i was offere. d. i negotiated $3k higher, but that was extremely shady. Lying to get well-qualified employees in the door is less expensive than honesty. You've got to watch the fine print, and COPY EVERYTHING regarding anything personal.

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Allina Health in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a person who was promoted to the management recently and I was already a manager for 1.5 years. So I guess she was insecured to hire me for the position and hence I was not selected. Though I answered all the questions she asked and though I had the 5 years of related work experience for the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Allina Health in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Inner facility interviews are held for new positions available. Interviews are held with 3 other supervisors, administrators etc. Many questions were asked about previous situations and how they were handled. This information I felt was irrelevent considering this was an inner office transfer. They would have known about many of the situations. After being employed by a company and in the same position for 10+ years it is a given that stressful situations can be handled appropriately, if not, they would be aware of it.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Allina Health in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    This interview was with the head of the Spiritual Care Department and a supervisor in training for the nine-month clinical pastoral education program. A detailed application, including essay responses, was previously submitted. The interview was relaxed, friendly, and conversational, with the interviewers being very open to answering questions. They were realistic about what the ministry and training involved and I had no unexpected surprises during my time at this hospital. I have since referred a close friend to work at the same hospital, who also had a very positive experience.

    • Due to the nature of the ministry, I was asked about personal experiences with death. This was not unexpected and I was prepared to answer it.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Allina Health in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an interview scheduled with hiring manager at Abbott Hospital. A week later, the hiring manager called me late. Questions asked were behavioral, experience, and two technical situation. Manager also had her little helper ask questions that were written up before hand. Overall, I did not get a good vibe from the manager and the culture at that lab hospital. Uniforms are to be a certain blue color and you have to pay for parking. After that, her little helper even asked me for my transcripts. I've never applied to a job that required that and I graduated from college 3 years ago. WTH?! I should have asked if they wanted my 3rd grade report card as well. lol.

    It took them a long time- several months - to contact me for an interview. Once they did, though, I got one scheduled within a week or so. I had a panel interview. I also took a coding test. I got a call offering me the job in about another week or so.
