Chaplain Resident Interview

Chaplain Resident
Danville, PA

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Geisinger Health System in January 2013.

Interview Details – The process began with an ACPE application, essay, and references, followed by an initial interview, second interview and tour of the facility. The tour with several different people also factors into the decision-making even though it isn't officially a formal interview. Overall it is structured very well with lots of opportunities to ask questions and dig into the specifics of the program. Your willingness to ask meaningful questions and share your observations is noticed.

Interview Question – Why residency now? A tiny little question opening up an enormous swath of my life.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate because the offer fit my needs.

Human Resources Interview

Human Resources
Danville, PA

The process took a day - interviewed at Geisinger Health System in June 2009.

Interview Details – 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
