I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America in April 2014.

Interview Details – I submitted my application online and got an email about two weeks later. They asked to do a phone interview that day. The interview took about 20 minutes.

Senior Security Architect Interview

Senior Security Architect
Nashville, TN

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America in February 2013.

Interview Details – I was initially referred to the hiring manager by a mutual friend. After some back-and-forth emails, I had an initial phone screen and then a formal interview. The interview was on-site and lasted more than 4 hours. I met with three different groups during the process, and the questions covered a very broad range - as I would expect for this role. The building itself is showing it's age and looked rather run down. There was also very limited parking - and I had to park on the street with a number of employees.

Interview Question – My biggest surprise was that they didn't use behavioral interviewing. In this day and age, I was astonished that they were all "old-school" technical questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Medical insurance costs were more than I'm currently paying, they do not provide cell phones, and the position would have been repeating something that I'd already done in my career. Also, the salary was not enough to offset these issues.

Product Development Intern Interview

Product Development Intern
Nashville, TN

I applied through college or university and 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).

Interview Question – "Can you draw a description of the finite state machine for a vending machine?"   View Answer
