    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Partners HealthCare.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by about 9 members of a group and they took 2 months to present a verbal offer. After that, I never received any communication regarding the next steps. Several attempts to reach out to the hiring manager and the Human Resources counterpart were of no avail. I do not understand how insensitive some people can be. I mean it doesn't take much to communicate the outcome or a changed decision. They just keep people hanging on the leash but don't want to move forward with any commitment. Most unprofessional behavior and totally unexpected of Partners Healthcare or any or its affiliates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Partners HealthCare (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Recruiter in CA did a phone screen, then I had two in-person interviews. Between my first interview and second interview, 6 weeks passed. After the last in person interview, I saw the position had been re-posted. I inquired whether I still a candidate, with no answer from the company. Very unprofessional in my book to not let a candidate know whether they've been hired or not after a total of 3 interviews. I guess that speaks to the company culture.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Partners HealthCare.

    Interview

    The initial interview was via an external staffing agency for a contracting position. The next and final interview was with the hiring manager, for a specific project. Excellent and informative interview. Team fit was critical. The contracting position led eventually to a permanent position.

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. I wanted to get out of my previous dead-end position so my requirements were that they match my salary, which they had no problem doing.
