Very Easy Interview

Technician Interview

Technician
Merced, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Pacific Pulmonary Services in October 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring process was ok. The manager was a lazy guy and seemed so bored during the interview. He got fired just after me getting hired and the office staff seemed miserable within the first few days that I started working. The manager read the values from the company which were good values, but nobody follows them! Probably the worst interview I had been in because the management is not trained on the hiring process properly!

Interview Question – No difficult ones at all. Everything was very easy!!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – If you are hurting for a job take the offer. Very flexible but prepare yourself for illogical management.

Interview Details – HR called me and really liked my resume. Asked if I could come in 2 days later to interview with the Sales Manager. I told the HR person that this week was bad, but starting next week I was wide open. She said she would contact me with the managers schedule. I emailed her and still indicated she did not have the scedule. Never returned my emails after that.

Patient Care Coordinator Interview

Patient Care Coordinator
Bend, OR

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pacific Pulmonary Services in April 2012.

Interview Details – After finally connecting with the scheduler, PPS was very inflexible as to interview time and day. Got the impression "now or never". Interviewer took a personal phone call in the middle of interview. Interviewer could not answer several questions about the company. Initial Phone interview was a no show, then was rescheduled 3 times at their request = always an odd excuse. "We will be in touch next week" was not honored, recruiter wont return phone calls, 1:1 interviewer was abrupt and unprofessional when called regarding further information. Thought it was odd that "fun" was one of the most important guidelines in this company according to district manager.

Interview Question – There wasn't one.   Answer Question

Branch Manager Interview

Branch Manager
Albuquerque, NM

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pacific Pulmonary Services in January 2010.

Interview Details – Initial interview was interesting - was called to come in, met with the district manager as the position was open. He had been the prior BM. Waited for a half hour as he was on a conference call. Once that was completed, we spoke for a bit then toured the branch. Very run-down, dirty facility. This was followed by another interview with a regional manager a few weeks later at a local hotel. This did not go well at all - she was very abrupt, made it clear that my age was an issue for her and my experience meant nothing to her.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Lexington, KY

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Pacific Pulmonary Services in April 2011.

Interview Details – Pacific Pulmonary was holding a job fair at a local hotel in the area and I decided to apply. There were two people interviewing applicants in a room. The one on one interview consisted of regular questions such as job history and the most difficult/stressful situation I had ever dealt with in my recent job. I received a follow up call the next day letting me know that they had chosen me as one of the twenty applicants and that they would be sending me a link to an assessment. The assessment consisted of two personality tests and one skills test which dealt with simulated calls. In order to pass the simulated call test you must choose answers that promote the sale of an item. The email with the link stated they would contact me within 2 business days and this never occurred so I emailed them and soon after I received an automated response letting me know that they had seriously reviewed my qualifications, but that there were better candidates fit for the job.

Interview Question – What was the most stressful situation you ever dealt with at your prior/present job and how did you deal with it?   Answer Question
