    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very smooth overall. I met with several people from the team during the interview and then had follow-up phone calls with a senior level management director. I thought the process was fair and enjoyable. I liked that they asked about my personal interests as well, not just what I had on my resume. I thought all of my conversations were good and I enjoyed speaking to all members of the team.

    I applied online – interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    This was a phone interview. They asked what was my salary requirement and I said I was open. I asked what were they planning on paying the candidate and she said it depends on experience but the range was $13-$14/hour. Seriously with a bachelor's degree that's their compensation. Wow! I declined.

    Interview

    Applied online- called back two days later for a brief phone interview (10 minutes). I was asked if I was familiar with PP and how I felt about abortion. My info was forwarded and I was called in for a 2 person panel interview which lasted 30 minutes. They were very kind and I felt comfortable! They asked "strengths/weakness", "how do you feel about protesters" how do you feel about abortions?, are you ok with stocking the back room, seeing up to 90 patients a day, and doing the call triaging? After the interview I had a 3rd phone interview.

HR kept in contact with me over the days. I was asked for copies of my certifications, BLS, and high school diploma. Then was called again for 2 professional references. After that I received my background check over the mail. Couple days later I was asked for the most recent paycheck stub, weird right? But they just want to confirm my pay since I was employed. Days later u got a call to offer me the position, in that call they let you know what your pay with be. I was satisfied! I start this week, wish me luck!

    I didn't negotiate because I was satisfied with my salary, and there's is always room to grow within the company. There is different levels of medical assistants so you keep getting raises

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    My initial interview was over the phone, very scripted screening questions to make sure I knew what Planned Parenthood is all about. I met the hiring manager in person for an hour conversation first, then spent another 20 minutes or so speaking with the VP of the hiring department. Passing that, I had to complete background clearance checks and a personality/ work ethic survey. Once the results were back from that I returned to meet the rest of the team. It was very informal - the team can ask any questions they'd like of the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • The only unexpected element was the extreme informality of the large group interview - questions were very casual and only some of them only somewhat business related.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was during the early recession, and before I knew what a 'negotiation phase' was.
