    Fast initial follow through with misleading future of. Met with hiring manager and other team members (combined department) for first interview. Not efficient without meeting with hiring manager initially to assess mutual interest; skill set/qualification/culture fit to be followed up with group interview.

No new trends within professional field or healthcare, poor quality, none benchmark of satisfaction of stakeholders when asked. Poor to below average communicatio & information follow through despite specific requested questions to employment specialist(s) prior to interview.

    I was contacted about the social work positions after submitting a resume for review for a different position. Overall the interview process went smoothly. I first spoke with a recruiter who discussed what the job was and what type of candidate they were looking for. At the conclusion of the phone call we set a date for the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It's a long process, but worth it if you stick with it. You need 5 professional references, a meeting with HR, sometimes a group panel interview if multiple teams are interested, then individual interviews. Make sure to be familiar with assessing, diagnosing, and treatment modalities.

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Two lengthy phone interviews to confirm my lengthy background with Nationwide's current software systems and my management experience. After the positive phone interviews a face to face meeting was set up. During face to face meetings no further questions were posed regarding my experience and all meetings were brief. It appeared I was being screened for physical appearance. The next day I received a call stating that another candidate was better suited for the position. This could not have been the case because of my exclusive healthcare background and experience with their Lawson Software systems. I am in my low 50's and plan to work another 15-20 years. I am active and physically fit as well. My salary requirements aligned perfectly with the position as well. My age was the determining factor in not getting hired. Unfortunately the best experience and qualifications do not always mean a company will look beyond age. This is not an equal opportunity employer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, OH) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview after the connection had been established by my PhD mentor. We then had a casual interview during which we discussed my research experience, career trajectory, interests, skills, etc. I had already been working for another PI in Research, so we also discussed what I was currently doing and what I was hoping to get from a new position in terms of content, schedule, and tuition funding. Several more emails, phone calls, and informal meetings happened before the university worked out joint funding with the research department I was going to work with.

    Negotiation

    Several meetings, emails, etc between myself, the PI, and my PhD mentor to work out a funding option, since the hospital pays for my PhD stipend.
