No Offer – Interviewed in Pittsburgh, PA Dec 2011 – Reviewed Apr 2, 2013
Interview Details – I applied online and received an email confirmation. I later was called and offered the opportunity to come in for an interview. When I arrive at the office, I interviewed with two people. The first was the senior level manager. This interview was very brief, and I was asked very general questions. The second interview was with the person that would have been my direct supervisor. He asked me the standard behavioral interview questions. The office seemed like a basic cubicle world. Being a large corporation, this is what you'd expect.
Interview Question – I was asked a few basic technical accounting questions, primarily about consolidations. This job was primarily going to be consolidating for-profit entities of UPMC, eliminating intercompany transactions between those entities and UPMC itself. Answer Question

Interview Details –
I came to the interview 10 minutes late because I had no idea where to park. The interview was like walking into an american idol audition. With 3 managers in different departments sitting at one end of the table and me at the other. I assumed "yea not getting this job". The first question was "Do you know what UPMC stands for?". I answered with "Yes. Its not a good place to be for a Saturday night after party". They all laughed. I answered every question on how I really would deal with certain functions or situations without sugar coating it.
The day after Christmas, I got a call and told I was the top candidate, how much my salary will be, benefits and where the orientation would be at. Nice Christms present. The entire process took 2 weeks from applying online to being hired.
Negotiation Details – Gave them my salary requirements during the interview process.

Interview Details –
The first step of the process was a phone screen - which was pretty standard: "Why do you want this job", "What are your salary requirements", etc. Later that week I was called in for an in-person interview. This consisted of the interviewer talking a lot about the position and asking questions relative to my background and my qualifications for the position. Overall, the interview went very well. I was one of four candidates being considered for the job.
After being told that the hiring manager would be making a decision within the next day, it took nearly 3 weeks for me to hear back via a very impersonal email that I had not gotten the job. Very unprofessional for such a large company. Not only that, but after sending various emails to check in on the status of the position - no one responded.

Interview Details – The woman who hired me was a professor at the University of Pittsburgh. She interviewed candidates, selected the person she wanted to hire, and had UPMC extend an offer. The process with UPMC took a while, I have never had such a thourough background check! The only reason the process was so quick is that my future boss had them rush it as the staff member I was replacing had a specified end date and she wanted me to be at least slightly trained by her.
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is pretty much no negotiation with UPMC and the raises are mimimal.

Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted the next day to set up an interview. I interviewed about a week later with someone in HR. She was very nice, seemed sorta hurried.
