    Medical Records Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at State of Michigan in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had applied through a temp agency for a medical records clerk at the correctional facility, received a call for an interview a couple weeks later. I went to the interview expecting to have questions geared more towards clerical but the questions were more clinical. Found out I was being interviewed for a unit clerk job of which I didn't feel I was qualified, needless to say I didn't finish the interview. I was surprised I was being interviewed for that position. The interviewers were extremely nice and understanding.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at State of Michigan in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process: I applied online & was contacted via email 1 month later to confirm an interview time. I came in and waited in the lobby and someone guided me and another candidate upstairs where we each sat at a cubicle and took a writing assessment on the computer. We had to refer to a case note findings of a home inspection and answer 2 questions in narrative format within 15 minutes. They took a copy of my drivers license. When to another room and interviewed with 2 nice ladies.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are behavior based with a couple questions asking why you want the job and why you'd be good at it. Most all the questions are "tell me about a time when". Interview was fine but wish I had a little more time on the writing to make better.   Answer Question
