I worked at Health Advocate part-time (less than an year)Pros
I really liked my co-workers. They were all great. A group of us would hang out afterwards too.
Bonuses - I don't know if they going to do this anymore (they were bought by another company), but they used to really love Halloween and just handed everybody $100 cash to celebrate. That included temps and people hired only for special projects.Cons
I didn't know that I was a temp to perm when I was hired - and neither did my supervisor the first couple of weeks. I ultimately left because a certain VP said things I could have proved weren't true and for those reason I would not be hired permanently. (I have a family member who works in upper management and loves her job. I think the only people hired temp to perm are the children of current employees.)Advice to ManagementAdvice
I don't really have any advice to management. Most are well qualified and good at what they do.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Health Advocate.Interview Details
I was met at the door by an HR rep. She took me to the interview with a VP as my to-be supervisor was on vacation. She did not seem particularly happy. She told me she thought I was qualified, but They have a sheet of standard interview questions and they choose to go through most of them. After the interview, the HR rep took me to a computer to complete a test of basic MS Office skills and English grammar. If you have absolutely no idea, I think there are hints and it will walk you through if you still can't figure it out. I don't know how many times it will allow you to do this or what is considered a passing grade. It doesn't take very long. (I want to say it took me 15 - 20 minutes). I then didn't here anything for over a week. (My mom works in upper management and asked my to-be supervisor who had thought I had been hired in her absence and didn't realize she needed to interview me as well.) I had another interview with the supervisor. It was possibly the most awkward interview of my life. I kept looking at her and smiling and she kept looking down at the notes the VP had made during my interview with her.
I ultimately was hired, and then I had to complete the drug screen and criminal background test and then I started training.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI don't think there was a negotiation phase. HR emailed me a copy of a letter with the offer and offer amount.Accepted Offer
- They don't really go off - script. Google a list of most asked interview questions. It's mostly questions about why you want to work there, how have you dealt with difficult work/school situations, etc. Answer Question
