    Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cordova, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cordova, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at VSP Vision Care in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I arrived early. I prepared for days. I arrived 15 minutes early but was called in 10 minutes late. And when I went in for the interview, I was interviewed by an assistant who was told an hour before the sheduled interview time that she was interviewing me because the supervisor wasn't ready. I had this appointment for over a week. I left my house an hour and a half before the interview. ...so basically the assistant was told to interview me while I was driving there.

    The interview went very well. I even gave a portfolio of my writing, but I didn't get the job. They provided 0 feedback as to why. And now I've seen this position post 4 more times since my interview. I'm very qualified, if not almost over-qualified, for this position, but they treated me like garbage.

    Application Details

    interviewed at VSP Vision Care in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was very very long. I had several interviews over the course of a few months and it took them a while to make their final decision. The interviews themselves wasn't overly technical but they did ask me a lot of technical based questions (I did not go through any white boarding) and various technologies that i had experience with (git, svn, etc)

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cordova, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cordova, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at VSP Vision Care in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    This was like an interrogation process VS a interview process.
    They asked why you left your last two jobs, and they wanted detailed information which made me feel uncomfortable, because I had to leave my last job due to medical reasons.
    Then there were 2 different tests plus a phone interview all before you had a face to face interview.
     During the face to face interview they did not tell me every thing about the job. They said I would be helping doctors getting authorizations and speaking to members. They never told me I would be doing claims.

    Interview Questions
    • Once I actually got a face to face interview they did not ask to many questions. Mostly questions about how you handle your work flow and questions about your pervious jobs. The one unexpected question was "What have you done in the last year to improve your skills.? Nothing to bad.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negation phase.
    They just tell you what they are willing to pay you, and it is take it or leave it.
    My advice would be not to work here. If you do really want to work here I would make sure to ask very specific question about the job and what you will get payed,
    I would also ask about raises and bonuses and how all of it works.
    Last year every one got a 1%-2% pay raise no matter how well they performed.
    I would also ask about promotions and what it takes to get one.

    General Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at VSP Vision Care in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I read of the position on the internet through Simply Hired and submitted a resume through the company's web site. About a week later, human resources called for a phone screening appointment.

    The phone interview lasted about 45 minutes and covered a chronology of my past employment and a review of my skills and relevant experience. The most memorable question was how I would define the scope of the position in light of current market conditions.

    About 3 weeks later, I was notified by email that I would be invited for an interview a peer manager. Human Resources asked me to call for an appointment and several afternoon appointments were offered over a two-week period.

    On the day of the interview, I arrived early at the offices and waited outside until the manager came down to fetch me. Over the period of an hour the interview asked me about the future of the company's competitors, products. Questions also covered the market place, the team atmosphere amongst the managers within the division I was applying for and other divisions within the VSP corporate umbrella. I had a chance to ask questions and those were answered.

    About a month later, I was advised that I was not the final selectee.

    VSP appeared to have a relaxed work environment. As I walked to my interview room, I saw other employees walking about and smiling all of the time. All were business casual dressed or slightly less than that. Everybody was courteous and helpful and even got assistance to where to go for the interview.
