    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Allina Health (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from the hiring manager and had a phone interview first that asked the basic interview questions one would expect. Nothing Sticks out as an irregular question. From there I got a phone call a couple of days later asking me to come in for an in person interview. The position is in locked mental health units so I had to pick up a phone and ask for the manager I was interviewing with, which was a little intimidating. I interviewed with two different managers, who also asked pretty basic questions.

    Interview

    Very easy going interview with a manager that was nice and was not intimidating, like most managers. I applied online in April and was contacted by HR recruitment in June.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Allina Health (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It really wasn't a interview. It's more just chatting about your life and some past experience. I was in the interview approximately 20 to 30 minutes. I believe they just need a body to fill the role and not caring about who they are hiring.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Allina Health in November 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted within 3 weeks of applying on-line. Role didn't even fit the job description nor the experience level. Interviewer didn't turn off her phone and listened to a non-related voice message interrupting the flow of the interview. Very disappointing overall interview and then not even a follow-up note.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic interview. After hearing the role description, "describe your relationship with the customer".   Answer Question

    Interview Questions

    • What's your process for de-stressing while you're at work? What do you do when you're stressed at work?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Allina Health (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2013.

    Interview

    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

    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.
