    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Essentia Health (Duluth, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Met with individuals of two levels. Job offered had different description and terms than job applied for. Concerned that significant terms would be switched from what was initially discussed. Human Resources representative was inconsistent, as several individuals were involved and no one knew who would be calling me next. There was a lack of accountability in the hiring process. Also, hiring manager used discriminatory language and examples.
