    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at MedStar Health.

    Interview

    Panel with 5 people asking random questions. Unprofessional and sloppy. One of the panelist was texting on her cell phone the entire time and told me she was going to medical school and that I might take her role then continued to play on her phone. One male panelist was very rude and spoke very sharply to me. Very odd experience. Surprised I got a callback.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online through MedStar's corporate website. Approximately two weeks later they called and asked me to come in for an office interview. It was a group interview setting and I met with all the necessary parties the same day. It was nice interviewing with everyone all in the same day.

    Interview

    Long interview process. It took 7 months from the first interview to receive a job offer. However, it was worth the wait. Seems like they could use help in streamlining their interview processes

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at MedStar Health (Ballston, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring process took a few months, but the interview was great. I felt challenged and my interview knew exactly what she was looking for. She was able to give me a pretty good idea of what a typical day looked like. I was also giving the opportunity to shadow the current clinic assistant at the site I was going to be working at. I truly enjoyed the experience and the lessons I was able to learn from it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at MedStar Health.

    Interview

    The process was painfully slow and left a negative impression. The initial interview was scheduled (interviewed with the hiring manager and 2 other associates). I left feeling great and excited about the position. About two months went by and I assumed another candidate was hired, however, I was unexpectedly brought in for a 2nd interview to meet with the hiring managers's boss. She not only arrived 25 minutes late, with no explanation, but her tone was cold, dry, and discouraging. Although the hiring manager had been pleasant and encouraging, her boss left me feeling like the corporate environment was unwelcoming and rigid, not to mention the lack of work-life balance. Although I thought my hospital background would benefit and bring much needed insight to the corporate environment, she essentially told me that hospital associates do not work out well in the corporate environment. My interest level dropped significantly. Months went by again before I heard another word. Another candidate was hired... I wish them well. I will never interview for another MedStar corporate position again. It was an experience... but not a good one.

    EMR Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at MedStar Health (Washington, DC) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted to interview for the position as I had extensive experience with the EMR while conducting an internship at the hospital. Previous manager had informed the position manager that I was available and experienced with the EMR. I had worked previously with the manager so interview was more or less a formality but was good to touch base and see what she expected from the position and what I was looking for in the position to ensure it met the expectations.

    Non existent, HR does not allow for negotiation unless you are senior management or a Provider. They have 'equity' assessments that drive your offer.
