    Continuous Quality Improvement Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CoxHealth (Springfield, MO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the recruiter via phone first, then in person with staff/peers, and the third interview was with the leader. Each interview consisted of several questions and the atmosphere was very conversational and relaxed. They relayed to me the same interview questions were asked of each candidate and each would be rated on their response. I was encouraged to ask questions and they gave good consideration to all questions asked.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CoxHealth (Branson, MO).

    Interview

    I went through two different interview processes. The first was with Human Relations and the second was with my possible employers (the managers on the floor that I was interested in). For the most part, what they wanted to know was that I was competent, committed, teachable, dependable, and that I truly cared for people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CoxHealth in August 2014.

    Interview

    Few days after applying online, I received a call asking me to call them back the next day for a phone interview. Basic stuff, they just laid out the salary and the job description. Some questions like why do you want to work there, experiences, what are your skills that will be of use to them. After probably 3-5 days, I was called again and asked if I can come by so I can have another interview. I was interviewed by one of the RNs and it was probably 30mins to an hour. She said she'll let them know probably after a week. After 3-5 days again, I received a call from them offering me the job. During hiring day, the orientation that they could give me was two weeks away. So hiring and interview process took around 3 to 5 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • During the phone interview, I was surprised when I was asked about what skills do I have. And during the in person interview, was asked if there was a time when I disagreed with someone of authority and what did I do about it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Since I had no experience, I did not negotiate.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, MO
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CoxHealth (Springfield, MO) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then panel/group interview with presentation. The process moved right along and they maintained good communication with me. People were friendly, polite, attentive to my presentation. I'm not sure the job was well-defined - they might need to do some more work on exactly what the position responsibilities are. People were well dressed -- not stuffy, but not casual -- and seemed rather sophisticated but the overall culture seemed to be a bit old-school. The position was exempt and my impression was that it would require considerably more than 40 hours/week.

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay and benefits (vacation allowance) were - disappointingly - not what I was looking for.

    Patient Safety Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springfield, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at CoxHealth (Springfield, MO) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Online application and resume submission. Resume is electronically scanned for key words. If it passes the key word check, HR picks it up. A recruiter will call for the initial screening interview to see if you fit any of the job openings they have. If you do, they call you for second, job-specific interview. They then recommend you to the actual department with the job opening, and you will have two-three interviews with Department heads before they offer you the job. My coworkers and I had a minimum of 3-4 interviews each.

    Interview Questions

    • Will you work for $6.90 an hour? This was a tricky question bc with shift differential of $1.00, it put you above minimum wage, but made a strange rule that we could never work day shift because they'd be paying less than minimum wage, which is illegal. My coworkers and I enjoyed patient care, and thought the job was important enough to work for peanuts. (Many employees and managers commented that they believed the job should be volunteer only, and resented the paid staff, however, when they tried volunteers they found they left quickly the first time they were attacked by a patient. The Security Guards are quick, but injuries are part of the job.)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Don't accept the first lowball amount. They can afford to pay more, and they will: some of my coworkers raised the $6.90 offer to $8.00. I didn't ask, so I got the basic package.
