    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Vancouver Coastal Health.

    Interview Details

    Initial telephone call from HR asking why I want to leave my current position, how much notice I need to give, salary expectations. After I was offered the job, it took over 2 weeks to receive my offer package because it is put together by a different department entirely. That delayed my giving my current employer notice to resign, which resulted in a delay in my start date.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for an internal company posting as I already was working at Vancouver Coastal Health. I was e-mailed and asked to come in for an interview. I attended the worksite where the interview process involved meeting four women from the office who took turns asking me pre-arranged questions. Within about a week's time, I received a call offering me a job which I accepted.

    Frontline Worker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Vancouver Coastal Health in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Most jobs are unionized. There is internal and external hiring system. Wages are posted. Anyone can see the wages on the internal or the external site.
    Hiring seems to be done internally by seniority.
    Don't be fooled by the number of internal postings. It only represents people moving about from job to job within the system, like musical chairs. The amount of new job creation I think is minimal.

    Interview Questions
    • Can't remember the interview being particularily difficult. I think they already knew they were going to hire me, the interview was just to confirm that.   Answer Question
