    Process took about a week for somebody to call me for an interview. Met with two people and they were all fairly nice. Asked questions about my work experience and how it relates to the position. Asked about specific job experiences and what I accomplished and what challenges I had. Asked many questions about team work and working in groups and how I overcame challenges for that as well.

    Applications Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    For the most part the hiring and interview process was pretty standard. What they seemed to be looking for was experience versus any degrees that you currently hold. The questions that they asked were very straight forward and there were a few questions where they asked some "get to know you" type questions to see if you were someone that would fit into the company atmosphere.

    The interview process was very easy. There is really no wrong awnser. It is usually over the phone, however my experience was in person.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mather, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mather, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Sutter Health.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was a joke. In my case, the interviewer had no clue what Project Management really is or how to identify a skilled project manager. I interviewed for other Sutter Health FTE positions while contracting. Those interviews were better, but still mostly very general. The hiring managers are not very adept at knowing how to identify and hire resources best suited to growing the organization. Often, the hiring manager is too busy and would send a junior team member to conduct the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Very basic interview questions, essentially reiterating the same information presented on my resume.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Completely unwilling to negotiate. They severly lowball the salary, citing that people are clammoring to work for Sutter Health. There is talent within the organization, one must look long and hard to find it -- and it's rarely found at the Manager or higher levels.

    Department Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sacramento, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sutter Health in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I have been trying to get on with Sutter Health for over a year. I had been called in to panel interviews at 3 different locations. The last one was at the location on F Street in East Sac. While all the interviews went well, I wasn't selected for reasons that weren't explained to me. My last panel interview went very well. It was pretty standard without any "gotcha" questions. I was told that they had to interview other people, and that they would be getting back to me soon. I figured that was another rejection so I was very surprised when they called me while I was on my way home to tell me I got the job. I am so looking forward to working there, and hope to show them I am a valuable employee who brings their best to every task given.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any difficult of unexpected questions. I've heard a few in other interviews like "What are you passionate about?" Sheesh!   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They made a very generous offer. It was more than I expected, so I didn't have to negotiate.
