    Product Development Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America.

    Interview Details

    Scheduled an interview following a meeting at a university career fair. The interviewers were cordial but did little to assuage nervousness. The interview style was what could be expected of any software position: "what does the following piece of code do?", "how would you design a ... system?", "what can your educational and personal experiences provide innovative approaches to our organization?"

    Technical questions were difficult enough to gauge competency, but never out of scope of what could reasonably be expected of a serious candidate. The interviewers did not waste time with arbitrary riddles or puzzles.

    Following the interview, the floor was open for questions or concerns from the candidate. The interviewers responded with offer of employment quickly (within a week).

    CNA Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Port Charlotte, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Port Charlotte, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews for two different positions, both times I had to go through the same nurse manager for different floors. It took over a month from the time I turned in my online application to get a call for an interview, after both interview I was told I would be called with a decision within a week and the first time around I was called two weeks later the second time around they never even bothered to call me back. The interviews are scripted behavioral interviews and the questions are tricky, there seem to be no right answers to some of them. The management is not organized. I was told I was interviewing for a night position when I went to speak with the floor manager she told me it was for a day position, when I was asked later if would prefer night or day, I said day since it was what the floor manager and I had discussed, I got hung up on and was not called with a decision. Thankfully they have online updates so I knew that I was not hired. If there were not online updates on your application you wouldn't know what was going on. Very rude and awfully stressful hiring process for an employee that would only make $10.00/hour.

    Test Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer at lunch through the whole interview and pretty much discouraged my applying. Advised how hard the work would be and stated they were looking for contractors which made no sense to me. Why interview me if you already pretty much decided you didn't want me. It was a waste of my time and energy especially since the person already knew me and my work ethics.
