Getting an Interview
Employment Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fairfield Medical Center in July 2012.
Interview Details – The process was very quick - I did a phone interview with the recruiter who was leaving, a few days later I met in-person with the director of HR, and a week after that I had three back-to-back panel interviews and was notified about a week after that with an actual phone call that I did not get the position and why. The biggest issue I had with the whole process was the panel interviews - three back-to-back is a LOT and it was exhausting. I felt by the third round - which I felt was most important as it was with the hiring managers I would be working with - that I could not give 100% due to being so mentally drained. Although I appreciated getting to meet everyone, it was too much in one day and I feel it could have negatively impacted how I was viewed as a candidate.
