    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Swedish Medical Center (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was a group interview with two hiring managers and four people. It was a little odd, as I've never had one of these. It was different than a panel interview as we went around and we asked the same identical questions, and some of them were a little stressful.

    Systems Director Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The senior (c-suite) interviewer felt the discussion went well and I was asked to travel out there for an onsite interview. I found the interchange to be condescending rather than collegial in tone and that is not a work dynamic I would consider voluntarily entering into. It was basically 55 and half minutes of rapid fire questioning on how my current organization conducted operations followed by occasional commentary, sometimes outright disdainful culiminating in an opportunity to ask a single question of the interviewer that he chose to answer by reciting the history of Swedish and barely addressing the question at all and abruptly ending the call. Being that this is the person to whom I would directly report to I feel that an onsite visit would be a waste of Swedish’s time and my time and money.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Swedish Medical Center (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After filling in an application form online, I was contacted through email several weeks later for a chance to set up a general interview. During the interview general questions were asked, what the salary would be and what to expect for the SECOND interview, which would be with the actual hiring team for the specified floor that you chose to interview. There would be 6-8 team members during the second interview. The interview processes is extremely slow and it takes time for them to set up interviews and answer back.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Swedish Medical Center.

    Interview

    Very structured behavioral interviewing with strict adherence to interview questions. I experienced no flexibility in the interviewers to ask exploratory questions based on what you said - always used the boxed questions. Made the interview a bit awkward and stiff feeling to me as the interviewee. Just be prepared for this very structured approach.
