CTC Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amedisys.
Interview Details – There is a long and protracted wait time after interview for offer, do not fret. They will check your references, and you may or may not physically interview with upper management, depending on schedule and location
Interview Question – What strategies have you used in the past which have not worked, and what would you do differently Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They did offer a lower salary than expected, but I held out and eventually got the money I was looking for
Instructional Designer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Amedisys in August 2012.
Interview Details – Initial contact is via phone interview with a recruiter. Very basic questions. She asked about salary and said she'd send over benefits information (she didn't). This was 2 weeks after application was submitted. 2 weeks after the phone interview, they called to set up an interview with the hiring manager. She again asked generic questions (greatest achievement, biggest failure, what experience do you have, etc). One month after they called for a second interview with the design team. This was very laid back. The team asked questions in regards to organization in projects, learning curve, specific experience, etc. Pretty casual. They called the day of the second interview and offered me the position.
Interview Question – What is your biggest failure? View Answer
Reason for Declining – The offer that the recruiter told me on the phone ($45k) was extended. Only then did I get a copy of the benefits. Upon comparison to my current benefits, there was no way I could take the $45k; it would have been a major pay cut. I counter offered. 4 days later (aka after they had offered the position to someone else who did accept their low offer), they called and rescinded their offer.
Very Easy Interview
Physical Therapist Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Amedisys in November 2011.
Interview Details – Met with the office director & therapy supervisor. They were very focused on telling me how great their company is, were very open about full time vs part time vs contract status, expectations of the job, learning opportunities and specialty programs provided by their agency.
Interview Question – They didn't ask any questions about my experience (though they did have my resume in hand), were more concerned about my availability to treat patients Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Pretty straight forward, they base their pay on a per-visit rate, which varies according to the type of visit (admission vs. eval vs. regular treatment, etc). It was a take-it-or-leave it situation, but they were willing to work with me as far as transitioning from my previous job, where I needed to complete specialty patient treatment cases which no one else would be available to cover.
Clinical Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amedisys in February 2009.
Interview Details – I interviewed with Sybil Chitwood, Director of Operations, who reviewed duties of clinical manager, she said she would be working with me closely and that we would see each other more than we would see our husbands; she said I would have to work with the business office manager and business office specialist

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Amedisys.
Interview Details – I had a phone interview/screening at first basically they went over the duties/responsibilities then from there we set up a face to face interview. My face to face interview was with the business office manager. As always I waitied in the lobby for 10-15 minutes before I meet with her. She basically talk about her personal problems majority of the time instead of asking me questions. I was scheduled a second interview with the Director the next day but that didn't happen I interviewed with the clinical manager instead. She just went over benefits, the office process/procedures, then a little about herself.
