Interview Details – Depends On If The Department Is In Great Need At The Moment

Interview Question – Do You Hear Around That We're A Racist Company ?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Seemed as if they we're looking for a token minority. Interview process seemed more of an open-letter as to why the company is not racist as people claim, rather than an offer for employment.

Appointment Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Baton Rouge, LA

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Ochsner Health System in August 2013.

Interview Details – About two weeks after I submitted my resume I was contacted for an interview. My interview was the next day. I was unofficially offered the position then, but I was told I had to wait for HR to contact me. HR contaced me about 3 weeks later and offered me the position. My first day was scheduled for two weeks away. The hiring process has been very interesting. I have been employed for several weeks, but my manager has yet to get me trained with the computer system so I can do my new job. I have been watching my co-workers and training with them as best I can. I have not really been given much guidance on my work schedule (as the different departments I am moved to work on different schedules), my uniform (another thing I am waiting to be decided on), where I will work, and several other things. It seems this is a very disorganized company.

Interview Question – Why do you want to come to work for Ochsner?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It took about 3 weeks after my interview before I was called for an offer. The offer came from HR in New Orleans, not from the Baton Rouge office. They would not negotiate my pay rate with me, even though I left a job making $2 more per hour.

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
New Orleans, LA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ochsner Health System in March 2010.

Interview Details – I only had one interview for my job, and it was a very relaxed atmosphere. I had already worked in a different department, so I was known by the organization, but not by the people in this department. It was mostly about them getting to know me and ensuring that I was a good fit.

Interview Question – Talk about a time things didn't go according to plan and how you resolved the resulting issues   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was not really able to negotiate
