    I loved my job, felt satisfied at the end of the day and wish I were still there.

    I worked at Capital District Physicians' Health Plan full-time (more than 3 years)


    I encourage most of my friends to apply to CDPHP because I felt at the time the opportunities to advance were there, they offered many health related benefits and community services to volunteer for, etc. An all around great company. The head of the company, Dr. Bennett, is a wonderful person, past cardiologist, knows his stuff and wonderful to all the employees. Great training, love their company values and mission.


    I didnt think there were any..... until I was called down to HR in the middle of the day and was told I was being terminated. No reason was given, they said they didnt have to give me one. I was not permitted to go back up to my desk, all my personal belongings were brought down to me, and because I had so much in my desk (I was there 3.5 years) they had to ship the rest to me. Can you imagine how I felt? Especially not knowing what I had done wrong. I wasnt the perfect employee...I had opinions which sometimes caused discussions between myself and my supervisors/managers, but not anything to be terminated for. I was told at the time I could always reapply, which I did many times without any response. Then I thought, why would they say I could reapply when they were letting me go?
    That was a devastating moment for me. See how loyal I am? I still wish I worked there and I speak very highly of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The compensation can always be better anywhere and CDPHP is no exception, but they were pretty good salary-wise. I also think just because a person has been a Supervisor elsewhere, or in a company for a long time as a Supervisor, doesnt mean they should be given the power that some of thm thought they had...and micro manage everyone. We are all professional Nurses and Social Workers, in the department I was in yet treated as if we were their children. Now that I a writing this I realize tht was a big thing for me. I felt second guessed alot by my Supervisor.

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capital District Physicians' Health Plan.

    Interview Details

    I applied to this position through a local career services website. After about two weeks, I was contacted by the employer for a phone interview, which lasted about 30 minutes. Questions were very straightforward, asking for me to talk about the experience on my resume. After that, I was asked to come in for an in-person interview as soon as possible. At the in-person interview, I was introduced to the Human Capital Management staff. I "interviewed" twice while I was there; once with the HCM Manager and once with both the HCM Manager and the Director of Human Capital Management. I received a call after a couple days offering me the position.

    Interview Questions
    • As I was walking through my resume with the Director, some of the experience that I hadn't included on my resume was brought up. I was surprised when the Director asked me more about the experience I hadn't included and was interested in learning about it.   Answer Question
