    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at BJC HealthCare.

    Interview Details

    After an initial phone screen, I met with the hiring manager and another recruiter who I would be assisting. They took turns asking me behavioral-based questions about my work history to have me demonstrate how my skills and values fit in with the culture of BJC. There wasn't a lot of time spent on my ability to do the job (they trusted the staffing agency to establish that).

    Interview Questions
    • BJC utilizes behavioral-based interviewing. Be prepared to answer their questions with specific scenarios from your work history (i.e. discussing conflicts with employees, demonstrating decision-making skills, etc.)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Since I was a contractor, there was no negotiation. In general, there is somewhat limited room for negotiating salary.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at BJC HealthCare.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took nearly 2 years. It was a new/specialized position in an innovative area charged with standardizing systems and processes across hospitals that had previously been autonomously organized. I talked with people representing business, information technology, methodology and management over about 15 meetings.
    This was an exciting opportunity to establish new project delivery practices in a fast-paced, highly charged, highly visible, and highly valuable work environment.
    <Note that this page does not allow interview processes to take ove 365 days. This one was non-standard and took nearly 2 years.>
