- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
A brief interview on the phone and then a two part in person interview. Met with five individuals total. Everyone was nice, but they almost made you feel like they were not taking anything you said seriously.
- What kind of work environment are you looking for? Answer Question
- No OfferNegative Experience
I applied online. I interviewed at Ascension Health (Saint Louis, MO).
A barrage of mind-F online questions without a single direct contact with a human being. Absolutely nothing to do with Marketing. Over-all online 'testing' process is poorly designed and irrelevant to the position at hand. A waste of time. Hire machines. They will be better suited.
- Things like -- Mary's software must be installed after John's. Bill's software must be installed first. Ellen and John must be installed....What order must the software be installed? This type of thing. Timed no less. How about talking with me about proper marketing strategies, AdWords best practices, branding, web strategies, etc.? Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ascension Health.
The interview process consisted of 5 interviews with various members of the organization. It also included a technical skills assessment and a case interview over the phone. Questions were wide ranging from relevant history to professional goals. Overall the experience was intense, but it gave me valuable insight into the consistency of culture and overall direction of the company.
- How comfortable are you working with large data sets? Answer Question
- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ascension Health (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2015.
The interview process was very very long. It took nearly 2 months to get through. The process started with a case study assessment, and an Excel assessment. Both were an hour long and completed over the phone with someone currently working in the position (note: you need to prepare beforehand for these, they are no joke). If you pass your assessments you get invited to interview in person. This happened about 4 weeks after I took my assessments, with little communication in between. The in person interview is around 4 hours and you meet with people from the associate level up to the CFO of the Resource Group. If you move on to the next stage you will interview with the director of the group a week later. After they collect all the interview notes from the past 1.5 months they will review over the next week and then make a recommendation to hire or not. If they make a recommendation to hire it takes around another week to get it approved by the leadership team.
- Pretty standard interview questions. I don't remember any of them that were particularly difficult. The hardest questions were associated with the strategy case assessment and Excel assessments. Answer Question

They require a 2-hour, online assessment before you may apply for the job. You are required to upload a resume, but then you have to retype all of that info into dozens of different fields on their application form. They offer no response or follow-up after the 2-hour assessment. The entire process is very impersonal and unprofessional. It really makes you feel like you're just a number, not a person.
- You are given 18 minutes to solve 20 logic problems. Things like: Mark is taller than Mandy, Mandy is taller than Joe but not John, Joe is not the shortest person, which of the following 5 statements is false? (this is an overly simplified example). Answer Question
- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ascension Health.
I am writing this review to highlight to Ascension Health that there are job scammers who are using their name and website as their front. I work in healthcare and currently looking for new opportunities. I received an e-mail from someone stating they wanted to discuss with me over yahoo chat a position with Ascension Health. I signed onto the chat and chatted with someone who offered me the position within 30 minutes, no background check, no referral check or anything. It was really bizarre. It was a remote at home position for Data entry and Medical biller.
- Have you ever worked from home or online before? Answer Question

I applied online. I interviewed at Ascension Health (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2015.
Interviewed with HR via phone before being invited to schedule a face to face. Had a face to face at the MSC location on the NW side of Indy. Had an enjoyable face to face but was asked to do a final interview with the soon to be hired PMO Director. Ultimately I went through a 3 step process that lasted what is coming up on 2 months without even a hint of feedback. I donated 2 personal days from my work and put forth an honest effort to make sure this was a good opportunity for me - which I thought it was to begin with. I sent emails to all concerned to say I was indeed interested and also reached out to HR a few more times only to get no consideration at all. No feedback over the complete process. For a Christian backed organization, I was really let down by their process. It's ok to be rejected. No one is going to be a perfect fit. But I think it always important to have the common courtesy to send a brief note of some kind to tell a candidate thank you but we have moved on.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ascension Health (Saint Louis, MO).
Case interview, and a behavioral interview which basically consisted of me asking all the questions I had about the company to the interviewer, and the interviewer only asking a few questions to me. Definitely do your research. After that, there was an online Excel assessment which was pretty tricky. They give materials for you to study, which you definitely should. After that, there were multiple interviews at their office with multiple people. These were more standard fit and behavioral questions, as compared to the first interview. Again, absolutely do your research on the company, and their mission.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ascension Health.
I first heard about the position at my university career fair. I submitted my resume and cover letter, and they got back to me two days before the day they requested for an interview. I met with them on campus and I first had a business case (~30 mins) dealing with health care, and then a super informal behavioral interview (more just get to know you, what are your goals, etc.) Everyone was really kind and it was a great experience. I didn't feel very qualified for the job, so I wasn't surprised when they contacted me about a week later saying that the process would end here.
