    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cleveland Clinic in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview is the initial step of the hiring process. After I applied I received an email to schedule a phone interview. They called me on scheduled day and asked me basic questions about my resume. The they asked me general questions that were more behavioral based. Once you pass phone interview they close out the position you applied for and your resume gets put in a resume bank. If any floor is looking to hire your resume gets pulled and they call you for a face to face interview.

    Appointment Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cleveland Clinic.

    Interview Details

    The process being with an application and online assessment based on personality and tasks related to the role such as filing order. The next step is a phone interview which behavioral based. The recruiter passed your information to a hiring manager at the site and coordinates an appointment if there is interest. Face to face interview can vary between behavioral and spontaneous. Generally, it consists of two-three people with one notetaker. It is a fairly laid back organization. As with most call centers, there are periods of two many chefs in the kitchen and lack of clarity but overall a decent company to work for. Advancing is challenging as there are not many levels between rep and management. In addition, a four year degree is preferred and draws a lot of competition.

    Negotiation Details
    Yes, there was small room for negotiation but that can vary. Be prepared to justify an increase with factors such as current pay, experience, and education.
