    Outside Sales Representative/PCC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Pacific Pulmonary Services.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and about one week later I received an email to schedule a phone screen. the initial phone screen consisted of a series of questions regarding my background and why I would be an asset to the company based on my past experiences. Went over pay and general duties, discussed the FBI situation. The interviewer asked if I had proof of past sales performance so after the call I emailed copies of accomplishments from my previous sales job along with a letter of recommendation. Next, the initial interviewer emailed me to set up an in person interview with the District Manager (DM). I met the DM at a cafe and went over my background, the position and territory, and how I would overcome challenges the job may present. The DM was extremely easy to talk to and answered all of my questions. I was contacted a few days later by the Regional Manager to set up a phone interview. Final interview consisted of STAR questions, questions to make sure I understood the role they were hiring for, and questions about my skills and how they could be applied to the PCC role (similar to first two interviews). They really want to make sure you are willing and able to form strong relationships and go above and beyond for healthcare staff to gain business and establish those solid relationships. Management also wants you to understand how competitive the industry is, and they want to know how you plan to gain business over competitors.

    Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Merced, CA

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 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

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bend, OR

    Application Details

    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.

    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Albuquerque, NM
    Anonymous Employee in Albuquerque, NM
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.
