    Occupational Therapist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at HealthSouth.

    Interview Details

    Communication was haphazard -- They asked if I was interested in an interview and I said yes, they asked when I was free and I told them, then they never got back to me. Two days later I get an email that said "We'll call you in a couple minutes"

    If I hadn't have checked my email I never would've known to expect it, and even so I barely had time to prepare given the lack of notice. This felt unprofessional to me.

    One interview, no negotiation for salary. Just offer. Human resources not friendly. Did not value previous experience or personal achievements. Felt like just another number, not a valued individual with something to offer company.

    RN Reab Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at HealthSouth in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via e-mail and telephone by a regional recruiter regarding employment opportunities in my area. I was open to interviewing for a part time position in the Florence, South Carolina facility however, I did voice my doubt to the recruiter that I probably would not be hired. Being a fairly recent transplant to this area, I discovered that managers and staff share their opinions on employees with other facilities, and my type A personality did not set well with my first employer. Sure enough, I met with (2) department heads at HealthSouth for one of the quickest interviews I've ever had; they asked no questions and said that they would decide in the next couple of weeks. I e-mailed the DON after (2) weeks and her response was that they were still interviewing. I have not heard from them since and I still run across their ad for that position to this day.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morgantown, WV
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at HealthSouth.

    Interview Details

    It is easy to get a job here. They will hire anyone, even with impaired or monitored license. Fill out online app or come in and ask for nurse manager, they will interview you on the spot. You will then meet with HR for offer, sign papers. Orientation is not the greatest, a few days of general orientation then you will be assigned a preceptor. Usually you will work with several preceptors

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask about your experience and tell you a bit about rehab but don't ask any hard questions. After you are hired they will give you a medication test before you can pass meds.   Answer Question

    Executive Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Birmingham, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, AL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HealthSouth.

    Interview Details

    The recruit team was prompt and efficient. There were numerous rounds of interviews with one group interview. That was very time consuming but it was a positive sign that all peer colleagues were included. The questions varied with the individuals.

    Interview Questions
    • There were few detailed or technical questions. One of the function heads seemed out of touch with current industry trends in her area and asked a question that threw me off as a result. That required some pause and diplomacy in order to avoid calling attention to that.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was straight-forward. I would encourage directly asking "does this put me at or near the mid point for the band?" They gave in to sign on bonus and increased it to match value of stock options being forfeited in the departure from previous role.

    PRN Staff RN Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Florence, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florence, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at HealthSouth in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I recently applied for a PRN staff rehab RN position that has been posted online and a recruiter called me about off/on over the past couple years. I hesitated to apply since I had, not too long before, been terminated(the first time my job performance has ever even been questioned) from another local employer. I was sure that personal opinion would supersede any professional facts of that situation, but I decided to take a chance. After a couple months of calls back and forth to set up the interview, I met with, whom I believe were, the Unit Manager and the Unit Supervisor. It was the briefest interview to which I'd ever been. Months later, I'm still waiting for them to "complete their interviews"...

    Interview Questions
    • Every other position I sat for asked about that termination; they asked nothing. Understanding that one shouldn't speak negatively about former employers, I was happy not to have had to put a positive spin on that event yet again. It was unexpected that they did not ask.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at HealthSouth.

    Interview Details

    They contacted and pursued me, through a head hunter. Interviewed me at least 4 times, then it was like pulling teeth to obtain the sign on bonus.

    Interview Questions
    • They just kept asking the same questions over and over, they really did not have a direction, but afterwards, I realized they only wanted me to rewrite all their JCAHO manuals, bring new business and help them pass the audit in 9 mos.   Answer Question
