    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (Lebanon, NH).

    Interview

    It took several months to get a call for an interview. The interview process was in two stages. Once, with HR, just a simple overview and tentative offer. The second was with the head of the department. I had to pass a background check.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked, "What do you prefer in a supervisor?".   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No, they followed a strict guideline that involved former payscale and experience.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions were posed. I was asked to describe a project that did not come out quite as I had hoped and what I would have done differently.   Answer Question

    Research Coordinator Interview

    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

    Anonymous Employee in Lebanon, NH
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (Lebanon, NH).

    Interview

    HR is going through transition right now so it is not the same as 7yrs ago. Submit an nonlinear application with resume and cover letter. Then I got a phone interview with a nurse recruiter. He then told me which units were hiring and I told him my interests. He set up interviews with the managers and had the interviews. Now it took them awhile to contact me before the phone interview so communication is not the greatest.
