    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Danville, PA
    Application Details

    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
    • 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
