    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    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. Insightful questions during interview. Poor job/department fit, based on feedback. 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    One in-person interview, waste of my time as they look at peoples physical features not your true skills, they may be hiring people they know not a fair interview at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital.

    Interview

    Most communications are done by phone calls with their talent and acquisition office. The recruiters are very pleasant and seem to be working for the best of the job candidate. Arrive early for interviews as you first meet with recruiters and then are sent off to the interview which was a long walk through the hospital to the research buildings.

    Interview Questions

    • General interview questions were asked. Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was called within two weeks of applying and had a brief phone interview with a HR Representative. He then set up an interview with myself and the manager. The interview with the manager was a typical interview with questions about my previous work experience, why I want to work for NWC, etc. I left the interview feeling confident. I was called the next day with an offer that was a little too low, did not match my years of experience in registration. I counter offered with a fair salary. I was notified later the same day that my counter offer was accepted. The orientation and training was thorough and helpful. I'm still a proud member of this team.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in November 2014.

    Interview

    This was a position I previously interviewed 2x for and was passed over ~ interviews were difficult, if going by job description there is no way you would be at all prepared. I was called back after being passed over several months before. Went through another round of anxiety ridden interviews with the same hiring managers again giving conflicting feedback. I was told they "really liked me" that I had " improved" did "great" that hiring would finalize by the end of that week. Two weeks later I get a nice phone call telling me they are sorry that it was taking longer then anticipated and that it was due to internal scheduling conflicts. One week after that I get a call saying "I am sorry, my intention was to hire you, but at the last minute someone applied and had just a few more points then you" apparently you get points during the interview? I was pretty shocked,really was enthusiastic about position. I'm pretty sure I was just a back up all along~like we will hire her if no one better comes. I was pretty bruised, couldn't believe I was passed over twice for the same job within 3 months. Why in the world would anyone call an applicant back in , an applicant that they had several lengthy interviews with, completed 5 reference checks on and ultimately rejected, to do the same process all over , minus reference checking with no real genuine intent to offer them the position .

    Interview Questions

    • Not really difficult questions but conflicting statements about actual scope/role of position, from hiring managers, a sense they didn't exactly know what they wanted. Interviews included role plays with very little prep information. Although,I felt the 2nd time around was a bit easier because I knew what to expect.   Answer Question

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
