Medical Secretary Interview

Medical Secretary

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates in May 2013.

Interview Details – Was contacted by a Harvard Vanguard Recruiter out of their Newton Office and spoke with her twice. She connected me to the Lab Manager who I met with once and then interviewed with the new Radiology Manager a week later. Was contacted one week later with the job offer. Turned down first offer and got second offer. Had to wait almost a month to start.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult. New Radiology Supervisor felt it necessary to tell me about all his dead sisters, his dead male lover and how there would never be another. How wonderful his whole family is. Asked very little about me. Should have been my clue.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wanted $18, they said they could only do $17 I said let's meet in the middle at $17.50 which was approved only to find out other's in the same position started at $18 so they lied about how high they could go.

Business Analyst IV Interview

Business Analyst IV
Quincy, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates in December 2010.

Interview Details – The process seems flawless at the beginning. First I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then I two weeks later, I meet with the hiring manager and the team for another round of interviews. Then I follow up with the hiring manager in two weeks asking for the status of my candidacy and did not receive a reply or a phone call. Fast forward three months later and I still have not heard from the company. What is most perplexing is that I was referred to the hiring manager by one of his team members.

Interview Question – Why are you leaving?   Answer Question
