    Private Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Park Nicollet Health Services (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    There was an initial telephone interview with a follow up interview with department management. HR was not familiar with the job I was applying for, which made the telephone interview difficult as the examples I used were job specific. I spent a lot of time explaining the background to my answer. The department level interview was engaging.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a difficult situation which you handled effectively.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The HR professional wrote down my salary incorrectly, so I was initially offered below my current salary, and additional time was needed to renegotiate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Park Nicollet Health Services (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    The in person interview process consisted of 3 parts: meeting with the lead tech, observing a tech scan a patient, and being interviewed by the technologists. When I met with the lead tech, she only asked me about 4 questions. I was able to elaborate on them to provide details; however, I was surprised by the lack of questions. Observing a scan went fine and was simply watching a scan to see if you liked what you saw - no questions for you here. I was disappointed when I met with the techs. They didn't have time to actually meet with me. They were busy working and some were busy chatting with each other. So essentially, I was able to introduce myself to all of them and let them know my current position, but they were too busy to actually get to know me. At other interviews I've had, they've set aside time for this and took turns asking a series of formal interview questions. I was told that the decision was made by a vote by all of the technologists. I got the feeling that they already had someone in mind and this was just a formality - the techs just weren't that interested in hearing what I had to say.

    Interview

    Applied online via website. Called a week later for phone interview with HR person, then called for interview in person. Met with direct supervisor and her manager who was on her laptop the entire time. Very little opportunity to talk and process felt very rushed. Offered job a few days later. I accepted immediately as I had been looking for a job for a couple months after being laid off. I should have heeded the interview red flags

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Park Nicollet Health Services.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was a bit slow, but that's the norm for a lot of fellowship positions. After an initial phone interview, I made it to the next round for an all-day onsite series interviews. All the interviews are behavioral in nature, so a lot of "tell me about a time...". The onsite consisted of the following: Interview with an HR Director, interview with Quality Improvement Team Directors, and panel interview with 4 VPs.

    Interview Questions

    • There really wasn't an inherently difficult question, just the detail you have to drill down to on the behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't a great deal of negotiation. They did however, base it on my prior experience.
