    Interview Details

    It's very professional. You deal with HR, and they give you status updates. Things take place in an organized and timely manner. You do a phone screen with HR, then a phone screen with the manager, then go in and interview with the manager and others on the team. Then HR contacts you for references, and you go online to submit them. Then HR gets back to you with an offer. They give you time to think it over.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Partners HealthCare in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process isn't bad but requires several steps. A recruiter will call you and try to place you in a job. Once that happens it will take about 2-3 weeks to be contacted for an interview. The interview is 2 part - first part is a panel interview with behavioral based questions (IE: what would you do if..) and they want specific examples. The second part is with the hiring manager(s). After about 1 week they will call for references. The reference check takes about 1 week, and then they will call for an offer if they so desire.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Partners HealthCare.

    Interview Details

    Very quick process. I had prior experience in large scale implementations so the timeline from phone to sitting at a desk was about 5 weeks. The most difficult and longest part was getting through HR. Once I got to the actual AM, it was much quicker and more accommodating. I didn't even both negotiating just to escape my hellish old job.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Partners HealthCare in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process has been very well run. Initial interview was with an HR Staffing Specialist. It lasted a half hour and he described the job and asked some questions about my background and qualifications. He told me that next steps would be a phone interview with the hiring manager, then a behavioral interview followed by a face to face interview with the hiring manager and others. Throughout the process I was told what to expect and who I'd be speaking with. Overall the elapsed time has been about 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • I really wasn't asked any difficult or unexpected questions. My interviews felt much more like a discussion rather than a question and answer   Answer Question
