    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.

    Patient Access Liaison Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Allina Health in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a low-stress interview. The manager was very kind and personable, non-intimidting. They are interested in who YOU are as a person and not just what you can bring to the company, but finding a spot that is mutually beneficial.
    The interview started with the manager going in-depth of who Allina is and what the position entails. She then took a quick moment to ask how interested I was in the position, when I said very, she continue.
    She asked about past customer experience, even if not healthcare related, and asked about personal situations/stories where I had to diffuse a situation, calm a client, and use critical thinking in the moment.
    There is a typing speed test, that is very easy.
    The interview was only about thirty minutes. I know the interview process for my department has changed slightly. It is now a two-step process with an initial interview with the person who would be your direct supervisor, and if you progress past that round, you are interviewed by two managers who are much higher up. You don't interact with them as much on a daily basis, but they essentially manage the department and the supervisors in the department.
    They assign a recruitment officer to walk you through the process from the time you are offered your first interview to when you are offered/declined the position. They are great because they don't have a bearing on your employment per se, so you can ask them anything.
    If they are highly considering you for the position, they will ask you to provide references. You have to send your references a personal link that takes them to complete a questionnaire and comment box. I believe you need eight. If those are satisfactory, then you may be offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Asking for personal stories concerning a particular issue - such as diffusing a situation, a time you didn't get along with or agree with a colleague, and a time you were most proud of your work.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. It was my first job in healthcare, and so I did not feel qualified to negotiate salary. With more experience under my belt, I would now.

    I had only one interview which went really well. I liked the two people that interviewed me. I found out later that they were not people who had a lot of patience. I had to do the job exactly as they wanted while others were doing the job differently and still getting the job done properly.

    Patient Access Liaison Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Allina Health in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was relatively easy. I was brought in to interview with two of the supervisors of the contact center. We went over my resume and my education and work experience. After that they had a battery of questions that we went through gauging how I would work in a direct contact role with patients, how responsive I would be to changes in the work environment, what my past work history has taught me, etc. It was all very standard; The second interview was very much like the first, except this one had the manager who oversaw over 200 employees and a mock phone call. This was to get a sense of how I would conduct myself when I was actually on the phone. Very easy stuff.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Allina Health in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • The coding test was probably the toughest part of it, as I had not had a coding job before. I simply prepared by going through my coding textbooks and notes from my classes.   Answer Question
