    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in October 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • Not difficult, "Tell me about a time where you failed yourself and a client?" Seemed like a get you question   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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

    Interview

    The interview was low stress and not overly formal. It felt like a natural give-and-take conversation and did not include any difficult or "got-cha" questions. The interviewer, who had a calm demeanor, asked about my background and interests and then described the job duties and schedule. The location (hospital common space) and format of the interview put me at ease and allowed me to field the questions in a relaxed manner.
