    Financial Analyst I Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mountain States Health (Johnson City, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process was enjoyable. I really like the interviewers, the director of finance at Johnson City Medical Center and the Vice President of finance. I really connected with them and their questions seemed directly about the position, not just general interview questions. The instructional video is a drag and just repeats itself but it was informational...at first.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Mountain States Health (Johnson City, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview began by the interviewer showing the facility and talking about the job and the various other departments within the facility. The interview was relaxed and straightforward. The Interviewer did not ask any kind of trick questions and just really wanted to get to know me and see what level I was at within the IT field. The questions that were asked were basic questions one should know if you have spent any time working on computers or just in daily computer usage. The interview took about an hour to complete.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Mountain States Health (Johnson City, TN) in April 2013.

    Interview

    What an adventure! Two phone interviews...relatively innocuous. However, when they flew me from Orlando to Johnson City, that's when the fun started. I met the director to whom I'd be reporting. The interview consisted of him giving me a recitation of his resume from his years as a consultant, including for Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA). After that, he escorted me around the IS department, frantically looking for someone in leadership to introduce me to. Yes, one might think that this could have been coordinated in advance but, well, that's didn't seem to be the MSHA way. After unsuccessfully wandering the building for about 15 minutes, we passed a conference room. He said, "Oh...I'm supposed to be in that meeting," and walked away, leaving me alone in the middle of the reception area. No "goodbye," no "we'll be in touch." Just walked away. About three hours later, he called me to apologize and let me know that HR would be in touch. Sure enough, I was offered the position, including a nice sign-on bonus. Again, then things got weird. About three weeks later, I called him to let him know the timing of me leaving my (then) current position and start date with MSHA. He replied, "That's great but they let me go this morning." At this point, I'd given notice, listed my house, and begun the relocation process. I contacted HR and the AVP to whom the department reported. She said they would fly me back up so I could meet her and some of the others and that the position was still mine. Without going into the rest of the dysfunctional process (which would take another 1,000 words or so), suffice it to say that these initial contacts were the GOOD ones. I remained with the organization for just over a year. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. FYI, there were seven people in the department when I arrived. Two weeks after I left, they were down to four with one of these scrambling to get out the door, not to mention at least three directors frantically trying to disembark the sinking ship. Another 20 or so folks I spoke with said they were in a position where they couldn't leave the area and were, for all intents and purposes, hostages to the salaries and employment. Just a train-wreck of an organization.

    Interview Questions

    • Maybe the most challenging question was "Why do you want to come to work here?" asked incredulously by the director I ended up reporting to. Why, oh, why, did I not heed his subtle warning?!?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary range was lower than what I was after but they worked with me to get close.
