    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Geisinger Health System (Danville, PA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Met with group of current HR employees, supervisor and head of HR. Perception is that they are overworked and understaffed. The group of current HR employees said several times that they used to be able to return calls within 24 hours and the time keeps increasing. I left with the feeling they cannot keep up with the demands of the growing company. The head of HR asked questions 'off the top of his head' and when I left the office I questioned if I wanted to work in that department at this company since I did not like the demeanor of the supervisory staff. I was told they met as a group to compare notes and make a hiring decision.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how I would handle confidentiality since the organization is so large and there may be a chance family or friends also work there.   Answer Question
    • Did you ever have to tell the CEO or your boss that you did not agree with them?   Answer Question
    • Asked questions about prior experience with internal investigations.   Answer Question
    • Asked about experience doing large group orientations, presentations, or trainings.   Answer Question
    • Asked ability to create/maintain relationships with department supervisors.   1 Answer
