Network Security Architect Interview

Network Security Architect
Houston, TX

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Texas Children's Hospital in July 2013.

Interview Details – I called the manager of the Infosec group (the old manager) and spoke with her about the position. We then met and discussed the requirements. I also met with another architect and discussed the position. After submitting a drug test and about a two week wait, I was brought on as a contract to hire. After two months, I was offered the full time position. I accepted the position. Due to the laborious hiring process, it was almost six months before I was actually an employee. This was due to a background check service that was unreasonably slow and a largely destaffed HR department (using temp contractors). The old manager was a wonderful ethical woman that made working at TCH a better experience.

Interview Question – Are you able to handle multiple competing project priorities while also performing long hours of troubleshooting / operational work?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The old manager was very reasonable and easy to speak with.

Clinical Dietitian Interview

Clinical Dietitian
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Texas Children's Hospital.

Interview Details – I was referred to the Assistant Director of Clinical Nutrition Services by my curent manager who knew I was looking for a new job (she was also leaving and didn't want to leave me high and dry). She asked if they were looking to hire a dietitian and in fact they were. I applied online and e-mailed my resume to the asst director. It took about 3-4 weeks before I got a call to schedule an interview. The interview itself was with a pnael of dietitians and the asst director. They were all nice, but it still felt a little intimidating.

Interview Question – Almost all their questions were phrased: Explain a situation where blank happened, what action you took and what was the result.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had another job offer I felt more strongly about.

RN Interview

RN
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Texas Children's Hospital in June 2013.

Interview Details – I was incredibly unimpressed with the hiring process at this hospital. I interviewed for an RN position. I flew to Houston and had a first round interview, then was selected for a second round interview. During the second round interview I spoke on the phone with several staff nurses who were incredibly rude, even laughing at my responses. I didn't hear from the hospital for over a month, and when I did, it was from a "no reply" email and completely generic, not even from the manager who interviewed me. For a top rated hospital, this was entirely unprofessional and awful PR for them as a company.

Interview Question – Behavioral/situational interview, fairly straightforward.   Answer Question
