    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Children's National Health System in March 2015.


    Honestly the interview process was quick and painless and they communicated every step of the way. What upset me was that when I applied and answered what my minimum salary requirements were I expected to be met with at least ALMOST that number when offered the job (and to be managing numerous departments and almost 20 employees, I didn't think $65K was unreasonable especially in comparison to what other companies offer for similar responsibility). Instead the HR guy called me to tell me they wanted me but offered me almost $10K less than what I asked for. I REALLY wanted the job but couldn't do it for that little and asked about other benefits like metro stipend etc and 1.) he told me he didn't know if they offered that (you're the HR guy, isn't it your JOB to know all the benefits??), 2.) when I seemed discouraged at the number they offered he told me how they really couldn't offer more b/c the last person to even make $60K had 28 years of experience (that's all well and good, but I don't care about other people, I care about me) and 3.) when I emailed him the next day to say I really couldn't take the position for such a smaller salary and to please let me know if anything was negotiable I never even heard back... a bit unprofessional if you ask me.

    Bottom line, don't waste candidate's time if you aren't going tp offer them anything close to what they state as their minimum salary requirements... or at least be transparent about that right out of the gate so they know not to continue the process if it's a deal breaker.

    Interview Questions

    • Customer service is a big deal at Children's, tell me about a time when you had to deal with an irate customer and how you dealt with it?... If you were working on a group project and your coworker wasn't pulling their weight and it was the night before it was due, what would you do? What would you do if it happened a second time?... How have you felt when you've had to terminate employees before?... How do you handle multiple demands of you at the same time?   Answer Question
