    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Public Health Solutions (Bronx, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I went to the Bronx office, to interview for the Bilingual Service Coordinator position. I was not expecting to have to fill out an application, but I did and I also had to type a business letter in both Spanish and English, as if I were already holding the position. The actual interview was not bad at all, the questions were standard interview questions, there were two women in the room, both very welcoming. They did tell me if called I will have to go to a second interview in the main building in Manhattan.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Public Health Solutions.

    The interview was completely disorganized--just two team members. I do not think they had even considered what questions they would ask in advance. All questions were very standard about my own particular skills and career aspirations.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were straightforward. Nothing too difficult or unexpected. I did have to regurgitate my resume on command because they had not even bothered to read it in advance.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    After speaking with a former employee, and witnessing the disorganization of the interview, I was left with a negative impression.

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Public Health Solutions in September 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online, and within 2 days I got a call from the HR department. they left a message asking if I would like an interview. It took me a another day or so to reach the representative, but once I did she was very friendly, and we set up a meeting. Arriving to the building, the office was well-organized and modern looking. I talked to two individuals in the department I applied to separately. They talked about the company and its different programs, then asked me questions about myself (some experience stuff, why/how this company, why this specific field, my interests) and were genuinely interested in making sure the tasks involved in the position was in line with the experience I was looking to gain. They asked if I had any questions, and ended with a small test on my filing skills. Within a few days, I was offered the position- total time was approximately a week. Overall it was a very relaxed, yet professional experience.
