    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MultiCare Health System.

    Interview

    Applied as an internal candidate and was contacted by the manager to set up an interview. The first interview was pretty standard, mostly behavioral and scenario-based questions. The second interview involved a panel of people with a focus on personality fit followed by more scenario-based questions with role play. The manager made a point to tell me he was very selective in his process to ensure they found the right person. Much to my chagrin, i was passed over because I didn't have particular skill sets. Oddly, those skill sets were specifically featured on my resume and the manager neglected to ask me of my experiences! Oh well, back to the drawing board!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MultiCare Health System.

    Interview

    I was screened by a recruiter first. It took quite a while to get that call. After that, the next interview was set up fairly quickly. It was very low key, only with the direct supervisor. Received notice from the supervisor that a decision was delayed due to more interviews and eventually received an automated notice that I wasn't hired.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at MultiCare Health System.

    Interview

    The recruitment and hiring process is abysmal. From the time I started to interact with their internal recruiter I felt uncomfortable. During my interview the recruiter walked me from one building to another and while we were in the middle of a crosswalk with people around us he asked in a loud voice, "So, what are your salary requirements?" Very unprofessional. When I received the offer I asked to get back to them within 2 days, and I was told I had 24 hours to respond because they "didn't want me shopping the offer around," and that they figured I "either like them and the offer or I don't." They didn't tell me until I got the offer that I wouldn't get relocation assistance, and when I pointed out that it's not cheap to move state to state the recruiter admonished me by saying that someone just moved there from across the country by having some friends "throw some stuff on a truck." I'm a highly experienced professional and executive, and I'm not going to just throw stuff on a truck. I had to request the offer be in writing in order to accept, and they acted as if that was some strange request. They wanted me to instead travel to their site for a 1 hour paperwork completion meeting where I would then receive the offer in writing. I asked if this could be done remotely instead of me making a 5 hour round trip and they said it could not. I had to explain to them that until I had the details in writing I didn't have anything to accept. Then when I got the offer in writing it contained errors, plus had outlandish constraints expecting me to work for them for several years or be forced to pay back bonus money. I consider them to have a fear based management system rather than a trust based system. I also see them allowing strong arm tactics by their recruiting staff that should not be allowed. I'm not sure what they are afraid people will find when they get there, but they seem very concerned that a new hire will leave soon after arriving.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was ready to decline and they decided to rescind the offer ahead of that because they felt I had unreasonable requests. I guess putting the offer in writing was too much to ask.
