    Health Care Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I heard back from a recruiter within a week of applying for the position. I received an email to schedule a day/time for a phone screening. I was just asked simple questions about work history, salary requirement and if I could perform the duties of the position, etc. That same day I was contacted and scheduled for an interview for the following week. I was specifically told that I did not need to get dressed up for the interview, that my favorite scrubs would be fine (however, I wore black slacks and an all black shirt). Interviewer was very nice and relaxed which made me a lot less nervous for the meeting. Typical interview questions were asked, but in a conversational manner that made things flow more smooth as opposed to just being grilled and having questions thrown at you. At the end of the interview, I was scheduled to come back to shadow a particular position to see how comfortable I was before being offered the position. Within a week, I was offered the position!

    Regional Organizer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online for this position, and had practically forgotten about it nearly a month later when I got a screening call from someone in HR. She had the basic questions for me (i.e. "Why are you interested in this position," etc.) and said that she would be passing along my answers to the hiring manager. A couple weeks later I got a call from the hiring manager who wanted to set up an in-person interview for the following day. We ended up talking for about 90 minutes and it was stated that the hiring process would be very quick, but almost three weeks later I still haven't heard anything. I HOPE it's a place that would notify you either way.

    Process took a very long time, met center director, the office was really messy -- it kind of was a turn off. Questions were easy, interview didn't last very long, it seemed she tried to rush it.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview initially which was followed up with an in-person interview about a week later. My interview began with a tour of the clinic with the clinic manager which was a nice touch, I thought. During the interview the she asked me questions from a document that looked like a standardized "interview questions" sheet which listed a bunch of behavioral-type interviewing questions. At the end I was exhausted!

    Interview Questions
    • I wish I remembered more questions. One I recall was something like "tell me about a time you encountered a frustrated patient or customer and how dealt with it."   Answer Question
