Helpful (1)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (West Palm Beach, FL).
Several phone interviews and one on-site interview. Recruiter disqualified my applications before reviewed by hiring manager then I would receive an email or phone call from the manager directly. Overall the communication was very unprofessional and you were treated like a number. On-site interview was weird as you had to meet with the COO as well. Micromanaging is a top priority at this place because they are for profit.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Nashville, TN).
This was by far the most mentally exhausting interview process I've ever been through. I started with an HR screening phone call followed by a lengthier call with one of the hiring directors. When I passed those typical hurdles, I came onsite for a half-day interview exercise with a large panel of individuals. At the start of the day, I was put in a room with a stand-alone laptop and a case study description. The case study involved a program with several projects and the challenges within it. The first exercise was to read the case study and present an executive briefing that lays out your plan (the executives are played by the large panel of individuals). The second was a personnel exercise and the third was a communication exercise, both dealing with examples from the case study. I had 3-4 hours to prep for these exercises before the panel came in. I think this is a suitable, albeit intense, interview for someone who is a project manager looking to move up. I don't think it's a suitable exercise for someone who has already been a program manager level at another company.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Nashville, TN) in September 2015.
The interview was horrible. I was prepared for a panel interview, but one person decides to interview because the other upper management was "busy". The interview in itself was short and unprofessional. I felt like I should have been engaged with questions, but instead I had to ask questions and it already felt like the interviewer judged from the get go that she didn't want to hire by trying to abruptly end the interview so I had to push a little longer by asking questions.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Madison, TN).
Brief but thorough. I was asked questions about background, education, crisis management and self care. Fair questions and pleasant experience. I left feeling like I was on the same page as the hiring manager. I would recommend to a friend.

Helpful (2)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America in August 2015.
I applied online, heard from the recruiter the same day. Interviewed with the Office Manager and Administrator at the Surgery Center in Plano 2 days later. Interview was almost 2 hours which seems excessive for a front office position. Most of the time spent was them talking to each other about things not related to the interview/position. They stressed longevity and the fact they have rarely had to hire people. I found the Administrator to be a bit patronizing and was glad an offer was not extended.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Nashville, TN).
The process required four separate interviews starting with calls, then finalizing with a flight to meet the team: 1) With recruiting individual - Basic screening questions 2) With HR person - Questions were still general 3) With Hiring manager - Detailed tech questions and hypothetical scenarios 4) With Divisional team - This was a panel interview to see if my personality would fit the culture of the rest of the group

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America.
I was currently employed so this was transitioning to next role. Most of the waiting was due to them verifying my licensure and education level. Other than that, it was not a difficult process.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Telephone, TX) in July 2015.
Absolutely ridiculous, there was a talking robot who must of mentioned the hiring manager on every third word with no medical background firing questions down the telephone, to then be told that the hiring manager a nurse I presume may interview you. I recently received an email to say that the hiring manager will not be interviewing me, because I have had a few roles in the past. Had they interviewed me I would be able to explain that over the recent years I have had care commitments to family members and previously had an injury and that I am an extremely competant and experienced nurse who never let's the team down. The robot was then talking about the wonderful perks of working for HCA, when she had emailed this to me, it was all about the money I could spend with my not so great salary to put back into HCA, yes they pay you peanuts then want you to pay that money back into the company with life insurance etc. My best advice to any nurses out there be cautious as this company appears to have a very high turnover of staff which with experience is a very bad sign. It also appears that their sick pay is the bare minimal, nor that anyone plans to go off sick yet it gives a person peace of mind to know it is there if needed. Hiring managers need to also remember interviews are a two way process for the employer and employee.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.
Applied via job board. Received immediate call from recruiter. Brief screening phone interview. Received request to interview 1:1 onsite very quickly. Very good instructions/directions. Interviewed onsite with Director of Project Management. Asked standard questions he might have obtained from the internet. Very one sided discussion. Did not provide good answers to my questions. Description of duties were very general.
