    Biomedical Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lanham, MD
    Anonymous Employee in Lanham, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Universal Hospital in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The worst interview I've ever been to. I was scheduled to meet with the Eastern Regional manager in the lobby of the hotel at 1pm. I arrived the traditional 15 minutes early and I saw a guy talking on the phone in a side room area. I thought he may be the interviewer but did not want to disturb him so I sat down and just waited, This person continued to talk on the phone for about 5 mins past our scheduled time. Eventually he came over and introduced himself and we proceeded to conduct the interview.

    It was an awkward interview, no real questions, no real format, it just seemed like this guy was just looking at his computer and phone and would just give me blank stares. I proceeded to discuss my employment history and how I could be an asset to the company. After I presented my background and skills, I gave the interviewer some pamphlets of previous devices that I've worked on and explained how they worked and what my responsibilities were. Again no questions or conveyance of interest.

     I then proceeded to ask questions about the company, position role, etc., to which he could only answer a few and the rest he had to ask 'HR'. The interview ended just as awkward as it started and I left feeling like I wasted my time even attending this 'interview'. And to top it off, he didn't even know where he was...seriously? I was looking around for hidden cameras as I was walking out, I just couldn't believe this was a real interview.

     Its been a week and haven't heard anything but that doesn't surprise me because the guy probably doesn't even remember being in Maryland. Even if I do hear something, I don't plan on pursuing a career with a company that pays good money to send one of their own to fly out from Minnesota to Maryland and conduct interviews totally unprepared.

    Fixed Asset Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Universal Hospital.

    Interview Details

    Applied through another party. Interview one was with HR rep followed by both controllers individually. About a week later, interview 2 was with the lady I was replacing (she took another job within the company), the other lady in the fixed asstes department, a lady inthe general ledger department, a guy in a special projects role, and one of the controllers again. Another week or so, interview 3 was with the CFO. Maybe another month past before I heard back. I felt the number of people I interviewed with was excessive.

    Interview Questions
    • CFO asked me to tell him the story of me. Kind of odd, but whatever.   Answer Question

    No negotiations, really. Offer was more than I was making at the time.

    Customer Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brecksville, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Brecksville, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Universal Hospital in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a recruiter call me and we talked for almost 2 hours. She was excited to schedule me an interview. Having a degree in healthcare and work in retail sales, is just the icing on the cake. She already gave me the job position and benefits, so that I would have a general idea of how to answer questions to the Cleveland, OH district manager. I had to drive almost 80 miles round trip with toll costs as well, so I was very early. However, better early to show care and concern for the position. I interviewed with the district manager of the Cleveland/Toledo district and the interview went well. He said that he would like to have me as his right hand man. He gave me his card and told me that he would hear from me. Needless to say a week went by and I called his cell and left him a voice mail. He called back and said that he was still interviewing a few people and that he would follow up. I waited 2 more weeks and I called his cell phone and he ignored my call (2 rings and straight to voice mail). Wow that made me mad. So I called the building and said I was a hospital manager who needed to speak to the district manager. The woman transferred me and he greeted me. I said thanks for the follow up and what is going on with the position. He said he already filled the position. I was mad and told him a few choice words. I drove 80 miles and couldn't even get proper follow up. What the heck? Some managers need to work on their professionalism

    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edina, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Edina, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Universal Hospital.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews consisting of an HR manager, department director and two supervisors in 1,1,2 succession. The interview allowed me to share my background and where I would like to be. Personally, I greatly prefer telling a story as opposed to behavioral based questions. All interviewers were pleasant and comfortable to converse with. Questions were fair and predictable. I had a chance to learn more about both the responsibilities of this position and the hours involved. The hours involved with the position were more than I was interested in.

    Interview Questions
    • I had a difficult time explaining my typical day. As an Accountant with diverse responsibilities, it is much easier to explain the structure of a typical month. Basic question, but it caught me off-guard.   Answer Question
