    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ascension Health Ministry Service Center.

    Interview

    I applied online, contacted the next day. Face to Face interview 2 days later. Job offered one week later. I was asked great questions. I was very impressed with the interviewer. Didn't ask the "textbook" questions, which doesn't really tell you about someone. The interview was more like a conversation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ascension Health Ministry Service Center (Indianapolis, IN) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The process was rather informal. I interviewed with 2 of the senior managers in the department who employed a very conversational style of interview. The conversation, though informal, was directed. It was clear that these managers had conducted interviews for this position many times before and knew exactly what they wanted to learn about the candidate (me).

    Interview

    HR-Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Ascension Health Ministry Service Center (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    2-part interview, one phone and one in person with manger. They set up a time that's convenient for you for the phone interview and after asking questions about background and work experience (pretty detailed for a phone interview!), they tell you about the company and work environment. Second part of interview was not as long, surprisingly, but asked specific questions, like what your career aspirations were, why you left previous positions, and some ethics questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions relating to ethics that may or may not sink your ship. I encourage you to be as honest as possible even if you think it reflects negatively on you as this is highly valued in this company. Since they work with a lot of personal information, integrity is vital so brutal honesty and admitting you make mistakes or have made them is more important than sugar-coating or omission of details.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, I was offered the job and told what the salary would be. It was a very fair salary, so I wasn't going to risk the opportunity by playing games with negotiating. Had it been a low offer, I would have negotiated or walked away.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Ascension Health Ministry Service Center in November 2012.

    Interview

    Round has two parts. The first is an excel assessment. Study the review guide they give you and you should be fine. The second is a business case. Read a consulting book and learn the basic business strategy.

    Round two is an all day behavioral interview with seven or eight people. They are pretty nice. My advice is to be enthusiastic about St. Louis.
