I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Provincial Health Services Authority.

I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Provincial Health Services Authority.

Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Provincial Health Services Authority.

Interview Details – Applied for jobs through internal processes. Testing was done in their main clerical office and consisted of a typing test for speed and accuracy. you were given three tries to meet the minimum words per minute (60). My first go at it was 100% accuracy and 82 words per minute so they waived the other two tries. Then I answered a multiple choice test on prefixes and suffixes of medical terms. Third phase was a basic grammar test consisting of where the quotation mark would go in (two weeks' time, one week's duration). After the testing had been done, it was evaluated and then you were brought into their office for the results and whether or not you were hired, when/if you started and what shifts you preferred.

Interview Question – Asking what I did in my social life was a bit surprising. Did not understand why they needed to know what hobbies I had as it was not relevant to the work I was applying for.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – unable to negotiate anything other than hours/shift preferred. there was an information package they gave me with the basic questions answered, forms to fill out for medical, union, insurance, criminal records check, etc.
