    I have been working at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Having worked in the main hospital, the Wood Center, and the Abrasion Research buildings, I can say that every area of CHOP exudes positivity in the workplace. Everyone truly wants to be there because it's the #1 children's hospital in the nation. It is also the #1 children's hospital because everyone truly want to work there.

    Cons

    It is often difficult to get information updated, such as a new phone number or address, through HR. My checks were mailed to my old residence for almost 2 months before the error was finally corrected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The process to apply for any job is long and laborious, but CHOP definitely take special precautions given that the work involved pertains to the well-being of children. Even so, I might be better to improve HR response time when hiring new recruits and dealing with all of that paperwork.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Interview Details

    I applied online after receiving an employee referral. A week later I received an email to complete a recorded webcam interview on my computer which was very weird. A recruiter then emailed me a few days later to set up an in-person interview with the floor manager. After interviewing 1:1 with the floor manager I shadowed a nurse on the floor for 8hrs the following week. I got an email the next day letting me know I did not receive the job. It was a pretty quick process and I appreciated how fast they got back to me so I wasn't waiting around waiting to hear if I got the job or not.
