    Division Project Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Hospital Corporation of America in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the HCA website and was almost immediately contacted by an internal recruiter. Two calls were scheduled with the hiring manager and the current incumbent. Both were prepared and the calls lasted between 45 minutes and an hour. There were several assessment tests needed prior to the on-site interview. An on-site interview followed which consisted of three individual interviews and a panel interview. I'm not sure if this was planned, but there was a one hour period that was unfilled in the middle of the process. I used it to review your notes and get my thoughts together. This office is a mix of business casual and formal, but dress for success. No casual clothes.

    Interview Questions
    • "I don't really understand your resume, tell me why you you are qualified for this position" (During the panel interview).   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The benefits package is non-negotiable. The base salary range was known in advance, so that wasn't a surprise. I was able to negotiate the signing bonus offered into my base salary.
