Interview Question –
No question was difficult as I use suppliments and read modern articles daily. However, they seemed reluctant to mention pay. When they told me I would make $7.95/hour...
I needed Valerian root extract STAT. I could not believe such an insulting offer even though I was truly not there for the money. However, $7.95/hour is extremely parsimonious
by any standard. View Answer
Reason for Declining – While I make a good living in Acute medicine, I actually love helping people improve there chances of not seeing me at the Hospital. $7.95 was direct insult to any human being, not just a healthcare professional. It would of cost me money to work at the Vitamin shoppe 10 hours a week ( Gas, Lunch, extra laundry " Casual Dress")
