Health Coach Interview

Health Coach

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Healthways.

Interview Details – Initially, I was contacted through email in response to my application, but there were several indications that it was a standard email that they were sending to several people at the same time. I set up for a 20 min phone interview with HR that went very well. The associate was prompt and it was generally pleasant, nothing too in depth. I set up for a face to face interview while on that call. The in person interview was quite different. The front desk receptionist was rude and on personal calls throughout my wait in the lobby. I took a quick typing and internet test. The HR associate was roughly 15 min late and commented that she couldn't remember if she had an interview scheduled or not. There was a set of standard questions that she asked me. She then took me on a tour of the facility. While walking through, I was struck by the very casual attire of the staff, and also by the general demeanor of some staff members. They did not seem pleased to see me or we're judging me, it was very awkward. I got a similar vibe from the Heath coach lead who came in to interview me next. She asked me a standard set of questions and clearly wanted text book answers. I left feeling good about the interview and was told when I would receive an offer. When that time came, I followed up with the HR associate and got no response. Two days later (a Friday and late afternoon) I received a generic email saying that I was no longer under consideration.

Interview Question – Mostly "how would you respond to a participant who is/is not ready for change?"   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Videographer/Editor Interview

Videographer/Editor

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Healthways in December 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process was a phone interview and was very repetitive. The woman consistently asked the same questions in different ways. It felt very impersonal in the fact that I would answer a question that she was going to ask but she would ask it anyway. I felt like I wasn't being listened to.

Interview Question – The most difficult question is always salary.   Answer Question
