Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Portland, OR

I applied online - interviewed at Providence Health & Services in October 2010.

Interview Details – Common practice interview... HR is slow, however once you get past HR you round with interview panel rapidly. Overall, you end up answering common industry questions such as "tell me about a time where you failed." You round with manager, interview with service line director and then progress to panel interview.

Interview Question – Not difficult, "Tell me about a time where you failed yourself and a client?" Seemed like a get you question   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not very detailed... They have a cap, and typically like to start you just shy of mid-range.

Data Analyst II Interview

Data Analyst II
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Providence Health & Services in June 2010.

Interview Details – I received a call to schedule a phone screen. Basic questions just going over your resume and specific experience. Then I was asked to come in for an interview. This was with the manager of the department and a high ranking Analyst, it took me about 1hr 45mins to complete the interview w/ Q&A. I was told it would take about 3 week to figure out if there would be a job offer or another interview with the director, but less than a week and I received an offer.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – They called me and offered me the job, and said HR would be in touch with me with the next steps. I did not negotiate because it was more than I thought I would make and what other pay sites said I was worth based on my experience

Social Worker Interview

Social Worker
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Providence Health & Services in June 2013.

Interview Details – Got a call from the hiring manager two days after submitting application. Interviewed two days later. The interview was entirely behavioral. All of the questions are based on past experiences. The hiring manager told me about the interview style during our initial phone conversation, so I was more than prepared. The questions were job specific, but I believe they use the behavioral style of interview throughout the company. An example question might be: "Talk about an experience where you've dealt with conflict in the work place and how you responded". I received an offer from a recruiter within a week and began the on-boarding process. The hiring manager remained in contact throughout the entire process. The background checks, drug test, health screen, etc takes at least a couple of weeks following an official offer.

Interview Question – The questions were predictable.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiations were with the recruiter, which made it less awkward than negotiating with the supervisor. The recruiter made an offer, I asked for more than I was actually expecting to get, but they met me above the middle mark, which was a nice surprise.

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Portland, OR

I applied online - interviewed at Providence Health & Services in March 2012.

Interview Details – There was a crucifix hanging on the wall of the conference room. They put me at the head of the long table with 4 people on each side (8 total). It was an intimidating experience. Instead of getting to know my skill set, they asked questions like: "How do you feel about prayer/moment of silences before meetings?" and about 10 questions related to problems I've encountered in my working environment.

Clinical Analyst Interview

Clinical Analyst
Portland, OR

The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Providence Health & Services in February 2010.

Interview Details – Started off with an initial phone call with the hiring manager to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was informal and consisted of 4 people who asked a battery of questions about work experience, career goals, and a general explanation of the position. After the phone interview, waited about two weeks before being invited for a 10+ person panel interview. The day before the interview, I was introduced to the IT team and sat in a steering like committee. Everyone was very pleasant and nice. The panel interview was very formal and everyone had a packet of behavioral and situational questions. This was very difficult but I was given as much time to think and answer the questions. At the end of the formal questions, it was an open session for everyone to ask their own questions. Overall, the interview went well but I do have to emphasize it was a little nerving. The work environments (hospitals) seemed pleasant but office space was lacking. Job position that was offered had lots of opportunity to learn various programming languages, improve on current systems, build database, build new relationships with clinical departments, and so forth. People are very nice. Programs/languages/systems: Centricity, McKesson, HTML, JAVA, UNIX, etc.

Interview Question – Tell me a time when you had a difficult customer and how did you resolve any issues.   Answer Question
