    Pros

    Lots of team work! We/They always pull together as a team to get the job done no matter how stressful the day is. It is like a family within a family.

    Cons

    There aren't any full time slots available. And they are not open on the weekends nor holidays. But it is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!! I would love to work here full time with benefits at the Cal campus. It is a great experience.

    Lab Assistant II (Grossing Technologist) Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at California Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online via the CPMC website for a Lab Assistant II position. When I got called by the pathology supervisor (Jolene Lushine), she advised me that the job was actually a Grossing Technologist position. Although this constitutes false advertising, the grossing tech job was actually more in line with my current skill set. After a very pleasant phone call from the pathology supervisor, I was called in for an interview 3 days later. The interview went GREAT: the chemistry was all there between myself, the pathology supervisor, the lab manager, and my future co-workers (Pathology Assistants). After the successful interview, I was then told that they would come to a formal decision the next day (Tuesday)and that I would be notified by HR on Thursday. I was the very last person to be interviewed for this position, by the way. So Thursday came and went with no notification from HR. I called them on Friday and left a message, and I sent an e-mail as well. Still nothing. I then emailed the pathology supervisor. She responded back with, "Have you heard back from HR yet?" Now, with an email like that, any reasonable person would believe that I actually got the job, but HR is just lagging behind. So Monday rolls around and I email HR again. They called me back within 20 minutes and told me that I didn't get the job. Specifically, they said that they found someone "with better qualifications." When I asked them what kind of qualifications they were looking for so that I can improve myself, they refused to give me a direct answer. They just repeated the "better qualifications" excuse. I was extremely perturbed. The job requirements just listed a high school diploma with at least one year of clinical lab experience. I exceeded those requirements with a college degree and 4 years of clinical lab experience, so how could they find someone with "better qualifications"? Doesn't make any sense. On top of that, a week later, I saw the same job posted AGAIN on Indeed.com. I took screenshots of it to have as proof, and I have it printed out as documented evidence. What's up with that??? Something is very fishy here, and I do not recommend working for this medical organization at all. Their behavior in the hiring process actually constitutes grounds for a civil action, and that option is currently under heavy consideration.
