    Medical Practice Management​​​​​ At CHaD Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Lebanon, NH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (West Lebanon, NH).

    Interview

    This was overall a great experience. The interview was geared towards my resume, what I was looking to get out of the internship and what skills I already had at the time. I was greeted by an administrative assistant at the door and upon meeting my interviewer (the director of CHaD) I instantly relaxed. She was easy to talk to and seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say. It paved the way for an incredible internship experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    Interview

    Background check took so long, I took another job. Interview process: Filled out online application. HR called and did a phone interview. A few weeks later someone else in HR called and did another phone interview. Then there was an in-person interview by multiple people. Then they said they were going to "move forward" with hiring me and would be doing the background check. Days passed, then weeks. I gave up on them and took another job. After I had forgotten about them completely, they called to "make an offer." I told them thanks but no thanks. Skilled health care workers are in demand and don't have to wait by the phone.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in January 2015.

    Interview

    My initial contact was with a recruiter through the website. We set up a time to interview the next day. That went well, but then days later it turned out that candidates for this program weren't being handled any longer through this set of recruiters and I was back to square 1 with the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (Lebanon, NH).

    Interview

    The interviewers were pleasant and easy to speak with; it was more conversation which is the kind of interview I prefer. At the end I asked about next steps and was anticipating a second interview to be scheduled the following week, but they ended up hiring internally without doing the second round. Despite this, I rather enjoyed the experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (Lebanon, NH).

    Interview

    The interview was very low key. They asked me "Why DHMC?" "Why the Research Coordinator position?" and then asked me a lot about my interests and goals. Much of the time involved me asking them questions, which was very important.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was "how long do you see yourself working here?" I thought this job was typically about a 2 year position. They want someone for longer, and made that clear to me in the interview.   Answer Question

    Supervisor Interview

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (Lebanon, NH) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Called for an interview, which lasted an hour. Two weeks later requested an in person interview, which lasted all day. This was broken up into one hour blocks. Met with both managers and employees in two groups, nurse managers and lastly Human resources (HR). Each block I had questions that varied from benign to difficult opinion based. The all day part was very well organized and followed an itinerary.

    Interview Questions

    • How well is your knowledge of process management.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I could tell from the beginning the managers where having a power struggle or did not have a clear direction for the department. The immediate manager probably would not have been the most satisfactory to be employed by. Might have used or using a Human resources model of management (not to be confused with HR dept.) that would harbor a sense of future resentment among the employees. Considering the location and scope of the facility the initial offer should have been higher.
