    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at HCSS (Sugar Land, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted an application through the website, and before they would review my credentials had me take a timed math test. It took about 30 minutes to finish, and consisted of word problems. Some questions were harder than others, but overall it's not too bad.

    I then received a call from their HR recruiter two days later to schedule a phone screening. The call lasted approximately 15-20 minutes. One week later I received an email requesting a second interview in person at their office.

    Upon arriving for scheduled interview, the person at the front desk had me take a second math test consisting of simple world problems. Like the others reviewers stated, it was much easier than the first and took less than ten minutes to complete. The front desk employee then graded my exam, said that I passed, and that I could then start the actual interviews. Apparently if you do not pass the test then they send you home and there is no interview.

    The interview consisted of me talking individually with four different managers and supervisors one-on-one. Each interview lasted approximately 45 minutes. The questions were all pretty standard fare. It was clear that none of them had looked over my resume until a few minutes before meeting me.

    I felt the interviews went very well and that I connected with all of the managers except for Sophie from HR. At the end of each interview they asked me if I had any questions. I asked Sophie about turnover for this particular position, which may have been a mistake. Her reply was as follows:

    "Most turnover at HCSS is not because people quit, it is from termination. If we feel you are not a good fit for the company culture or you do not meet your benchmarks within the first month or two, then we will just terminate you and find someone more qualified. We have lots of qualified applicants ready to move to this position."

    It was a bit surprising to say the least, and raised a few red flags indicating that this is probably not somewhere I want to work. I received a rejection letter by email two days after, which to be honest was a bit of a relief.
