    Interviewed with Manager and Administrator for about 20 minutes each. The Administrator took a non urgent phone call in the middle of the interview which I thought was extremely rude.

    Division Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin.

    Interview Details

    I applied in June and had a phone interview within a few weeks. I never heard back until October when they called me in for a 6 hour interview. I got interviewed by 11 different people over the course of the day. Overall, the questions were pretty standard. There was nothing surprising if you've prepared. The interviewers all seemed like they'd be good coworkers, they all seemed passionate about their jobs and seemed like they enjoyed their work.

    The position reported to 3 (or maybe 4...I'm not even sure because it was so convoluted) different people who all had competing interests, and all 3 (or 4) expressed their interests were the most crucial. I suppose that's human nature, and I would place the negative connotations from that on the structure and not the individuals. Of the 11 interviewers, there were different levels of desire outwardly expressed about changing the structure- I suspect it won't change any time soon. There seemed to be quite a disconnect from one functional area to the next. Each interviewer explained the administrator role in a completely different way, even to the point that I looked stupid as I repeated earlier explanations. At one point an interviewer literally laughed as I repeated what was told to me. I don't say this to be negative at all- just an honest assessment of what I saw. No job is going to be all sunshine and rainbows and this one is no different.

    In so far as an interview can be a "positive" or "enjoyable" experience, I'd say MCW did pretty well. I didn't leave with any reservations about working with, or for, any of the people I met. I think I would have enjoyed working there had they offered me a position.

    Very impressed with interview process, casual. Interview gave very accurate description of job duties and introduced me to co-workers I would be working with most directly. Gave very accurate directions to location and met me at front desk. Took time to answer all my questions and was very pleasant.

    Financial Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    They really drag their feet on initial interview and will take a while to set it up. Your basic lame HR questions i.e. name your biggest weakness. The questions seem to show they're looking for good actors not employees. Had an interviewer check his cell phone when I was talking. Had them tell me they'd let me know either way on the job within 2 weeks; ended up finding out on my own and then got an email 3 months later that I didn't get the job.

    Administrative Assistant III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, contacted by email about 3 weeks later for preliminary interview. You will get an email confirming the interview appointment, along with forms to fill out ahead of time - including a credit check and criminal background check. Their hiring office is very hard to find, so be careful that you go to the right building. Went in for a preliminary interview which included skills tests on Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, Outlook and Powerpoint). After the skills tests, met for about thirty minutes with one of the HR people. Took about 90 minutes to get through both parts. Interview questions were pretty standard. Was told I would be contacted either way about the position, and heard nothing.

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview with Employment, then interviewed with manager of position, director of area, and then 3 interviews with managers of various areas would support. In total 6 interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • The initial interview with the recruiter and the hiring manager were very balanced and pleasant experiences. The final interviews with the Director of HR and then managers of various area that the position would support focused on how political the environment is, as well as, in my case, their preconceived assumptions about my employer. My employer is, by far, the largest employer in the health field in the area and each one of the final 4 interviews made me feel like I was the on the receiving end of their assumptive viewpoints.   Answer Question
