UMass Medical School Clinical Policy Analyst Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Clinical Policy Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at UMass Medical School in April 2009.
Interview Details – The hiring process is painfully slow and will seem to have stopped. After initial communication several weeks may lapse until the candidate here's from the employer again. Often there is a disconnect between the hiring managers and the HR dept. HR at this organization is TERRIBLE. If you get to interviews, you'll likely meet with your future colleagues who are mostly bright, friendly, and underpaid. Demonstrate that you're a good team player and detailed oriented. Striking the right balance of reserved and out-going is key. Good to air on the side of reserved.
Interview Question – MassHealth is the biggest client of the organization. Do your homework on MassHealth and what comprises policy making. You may get a question like, "What would you do if you had a difficult client with whom you had to work?" View Answer
Negotiation Details – There's almost no wiggle room in negotiating, and the hiring managers have nothing to do with salary negotiation. It all comes down to HR, so remember that.
