    No negotiation. Was told top offer was given, it was a fair salary offer in my opinnion. I was most interested in relocation assistance could have been better.

    Interview

    New Grads must go through a rigorous and competitive hiring process. It starts with a phone interview, then there are group interviews, and then you interview in different departments in front of a panel. Be as polished as possible. Many good candidates don't make it. So, don't feel bad if that's you. Good luck.

    Interview Questions

    • Stanford uses a personality assessment tool via a third party product. They swear by it, but i'm not convinced.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation because it's unionized.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Stanford Health Care.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the recruiter a week later. She scheduled an initial screening with me and shared more about the position before passing me on to the hiring manager and leadership team. I met with them a few weeks later - by far it was the easiest interview process I've been through at this level. No challenging questions, no case interview, nothing. The recruiter called me back and offered me a match to my current salary and then the hiring manager called me later that day and offered me 10% more than what I requested (20% more than my current salary).

    I want to stress that, recruiter aside, I truly enjoyed getting to know a variety of people at the hospital. That being said, the interview process itself left much to be desired.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined for four reasons:
    1. During two of the interviews (more like meet and greets) with leaders they shared their concerns regarding current leadership and the culture at the hospital, as well as the specific department I had applied to.
    2. The VP that I interviewed with did not have a process for the interview, rather only asked a few questions and explained the existing projects. (red flag for me)
    3. I felt that my recruiter was unprofessional and didn't do a good job of representing the organization. I really didn't feel that she was on the same page as the hiring manager, and in fact felt that the hiring manager had to take over towards the end.
    4. I parsed through reviews online and had many concerns about the current culture and leadership at the hospital. In all fairness, I decided to leave my current company due to the culture and lack of accountability so I was especially sensitive to such commentary/insights.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Stanford Health Care (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I got my job via a strong internal employee referral. At first for a 2-3 weeks nobody called. Then a guy from HR called and did a basic screen. Then after a week talent acquisition send an email to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was very basic hr screening. Then a phone interview with hiring manager was scheduled after 3 weeks. that went well and was invited for face 2 face the following week. After a week offer was presented. Offer was more than what I had asked for so couldn't complain.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Stanford Health Care in May 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted by Insight Global who initially asked about my work experience. After talking with an account manager and sending my resume and a couple of references, they set me up with a phone interview for a Stanford Clinic opening soon.

    I joined in on a phone conference interview with the hiring manager and 2 other employees. I was prepared for a phone interview and had been preparing for the past 2 weeks. I didn't expect the first phone interview to be technical rather than behavioral. However, I did enjoy it and they were simple questions. The interviewer stated situations and took me through the process of solving them. I can honestly say it was fun for me!

    Interview

    Forwarded my CV to recruiters who contacted me for two separate one hour phone interviews. First interview was with two recruiters, second interview was with one individual. The interviewers were cordial and friendly. The phone interviews were intended to narrow the group of candidates down to those who would be offered visits to Stanford for in person interviews.
