    I have been working at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great "people" focus - from wellness to a huge amount of professional/leadership development. Many opportunities for advancement, especially for clinical and professional staff. Can't beat the mission: "To make kids better today and healthier tomorrow". It's great to work at a place where people are dedicated and passionate about making life better for kids.

    Cons

    Decision making can be slow and could be better disseminated to levels closer to the issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For each decision, continue to ask, "Is this the best for the kids?" and "How will this affect and be perceived by our employees?".

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was via video which consisted on 10 questions about my character and the position in which I was applying.
    Second interview was with the recruiter who also gave a ten question written test about the procedures of the position. And he gave an overall description of the position.
    Last interview was a 3 person panel consisting of the dept head, dept supervisor and your potential reporting supervisor. This interview consisted of constant questions about how you would deal with the negatives of the job. It seem as though they wanted someone who has ran into frequent complications and tell how they dealt with it. Everything seemed negative, no positives seemed to be taken into consideration for this particular position. For example: if the computer crashed how would I handle it? My answer was to get the data backed up or handwritten and advise the supervisor of the issue but that wasn't what they was looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were those of bad encounters that I didn't see as negatives but instead I was able to continue working   Answer Question
