    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Froedtert Health (Greenfield, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview with them was over the phone. I was called by human resources where they set up a preset time for me to receive the call. She called me right on time and we started the interview right away. She asked me the standard questions usually asked about strengths and weaknesses. She also asked me behavioral type questions. She asked several questions that hinted at how I work as a member of team or how I liked working as a collaborative member of the team. I found it pretty hard to interview effectively this way as I could not see the person with whom I was speaking and I was also unable to read her body language in order to gauge whether I was answering her questions properly.
