    Volunteer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berkeley, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berkeley, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    No interview at all... walked in and immediately was asked what hours I was available and which department I'd like to volunteer for. Make sure you have the money to pay for your uniform polo and that you have 4-hour chunks open to volunteer. You'll attend an orientation after the interview and then a training session to learn the necessary skills.

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, recruiter called within a few days. Then nothing. I received an email telling me thank you, but the job was filled. Then a week later the recruiter called to schedule an interview - but he was not prepared and didn't have any schedules, said he'd call back in a few minutes. 24 hours later he called to set up the panel interview.
    Very OLD school interview. Team of 5, each asked a question off a sheet in turn, then ranked my answers. After the interview concluded I was told they were making a decision that same day, and the recruiter promised to call me that afternoon. No call - not a surprise - and a week later a LETTER in the mail saying they had selected someone else. I didn't know people still sent rejection letters for jobs. And I did not appreciate the multiple broken promises by the recruiter. Broken process.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Know what questions you want to ask the employer regarding training programs, services or clients, general working conditions, etc.. If you have done research ahead of time, you should already know some of these answers. However the interview is the right time to find out more. You' will most likely to be in the right position if you already know something about the organization and the kind of jobs you want.
