    Interview Details

    Initial communications happened through the website and I ended up being pushed towards a position that didn't actually exist yet, but one they were trying to create in the department. First I was led through 2 phone interviews and then an in person after which I was offered the position.

    Reasons for Declining

    This ended up not being a great fit for me due to the relaxed nature of the position. I was looking for something a little faster paced.

    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at The Palo Alto Medical Foundation in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was a group/panel interview. There was a total of 3 candidates including myself that was going to get interviewed for the position. The location was on top of a Bank of America and everyone seemed to love AND enjoy their jobs. The two woman that I meet with were very friendly after asking the typical interview questions the Manager showed all three of us around the office. My advice is to be yourself and relate to the job and especially make a connection with the managers. The office was medium size built and everyone appeared to be happy at what they do.

    Interview Details

    Years ago, I had a great interview with recruitment and was poised to accept a job offer they had "verbally" given me. I followed up and never heard back. No follow up on the part of the person who opened her mouth too soon and she was without enough integrity to let me know she made a mistake.

    Be relaxed. You are in the drivers seat. Its not very hard to get a PC job in any area of the US of A today and likely will just get more in demand as time passes. It can take up to 6 months for a Cal medical lic s get on that fast. No one at a good medical group will take you serioulsy unless you has Cal med lic first. PAMF has jobs all over the Bay Area.
