    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    I first met with HR to go over general benefits and job description, then met with the clinical manager for an in-depth interview regarding my skills and job performance.
    HR was very helpful in answering my questions regarding benefits and the job interview process - they did a good job of describing UPMC's philosophies and goals.
    The interview with the clinical manager was helpful and standard, described the work duties, the schedule, etc. I was taken in to meet the over employees and was taken on a tour of the facility.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy interview process. Start to finish was a couple of months, as it was a month after I submitted my resume before they called me for an interview, and despite their saying that they wanted to fill the position sooner than later, they still didn't call back about the job for another month after the interview. I was quite sure I didn't have the position, in fact, and was actively pursuing another job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at UPMC.

    Interview

    The interview was very laid back with 2 people just asking some general questions about why you applied and your previous work experiences. No pressure whatsoever while the interview was being conducted. I wore a shirt and tie but it certainly was not a necessity after seeing what some others wore to their interviews and were offered jobs.

    Application

    The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at UPMC.

    Interview

    The Interview Process is VERY LONG.

    1) You visit the UPMC careers website and submit an application to the Floater Pool for Patient Access Representatives. UPMC is always hiring patient access representativies (also called patient information coordinators) because people in this position tend to either get promoted after a year or two into a different role or leave the company all together.
    2) Two weeks later, someone from HR will call you and have a phone interview with you.
    3) If the phone interview goes well, you will then have a face-to-face interview with a supervisor for the Floater Pool.
    3) If the second interview goes well, UPMC will go ahead and try to find a placement site for you. During the next three or more weeks, you get numerous calls from different UPMC facilities asking to interview you. At this point, you need to pray that you get placed soon because all of the traveling and interview starts to get frustrating.

    I went to three site interviews and I did very well. The only problem was I was over-qualified. I have a bachelor's degree with a lot of healthcare experience. People that take this job usually don't have bachelor's degree and don't have a lot of work experience. After the third interview, I was offered a great position at another healthcare company and I decided to not proceed with the Floater Pool.

    I think this would be a great position for someone that is looking for an entry-level position at UPMC and doesn't have much work experience or education. From there, you would work your way up in the UPMC healthcare system and eventually become a supervisor, manager, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Why do you want to work in healthcare?
      2) Do you have any hospital experience in scheduling patients and checking in/out patients?
      3) You already have a lot of work experience in healthcare. Why do you decided to apply for this position?
      4) Describe an instance in which you had to face a difficult patient or customer. How did you handle the situation?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. About a month or so later, I received a phone call about setting up an interview. Met face-to-face with the PI and other employees who worked in the same laboratory. They all mainly asked the same questions. UPMC has pretty standardized questions, so the interview wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I haven't heard anything at all.

    Housekeeping Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I first applied online multiple times for multiple jobs and finally got a call to schedule a phone interview for housekeeping at presby. I did my phone interview which was basically a run down of what was on my application and was invited to a group interview 2 weeks later. In between those two I also got a call for the same position at shadyside, I told them I was taking the offer at presby and they told me good luck and if that didnt work out to call them back. The group interview was interesting, we watch a video on customer service and then the two managers asked the six of us the same questions based on the video. Just smile and give good answers without copying what everyone else is saying. After the group interview as I was leaving one of the managers shook my hand and told me not to worry, that Id already got the job. A few days went by and I was called to schedule a final one on one interview. About a week later i went for the final interview and he said he knew he was going to offer me the job so he just gave me a run down of various duties. A few days later i scheduled a pre employment physical for about 2 weeks later. The physical involved a weight check, blood draw, pee test and a test to see if you can fit the duck bill masks. I started working about 2 weeks after that. Orientation is paid. All in all very long process but worth it because the pay and perks are better than everywhere else.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted about a month later for a brief phone interview with basic questions and an elaboration on the job description. Scheduled an in-person interview for the following week. Met with 4 individuals for a panel-style interview which lasted for about 45 minutes. Was told that this would be the only interview and I would be given a decision in about two weeks.
