    I have been working at Hershey Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They never cut hours and we have gotten a raise annually in addition to an annual bonus every year since I started there (6 yrs ago). Plus a 75% tuition bonus for a Penn State education!

    Cons

    It's hard to promote within the company since there is so much competition nationally for top positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote for too positions within the company. You can trust the people who are already working for you and just train him or her on new job descriptions as long as they are qualified. Offer 100% tuition discount as long as a certain gpa is attained (3.0 or higher maybe)...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Hershey Medical Center in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted to come for a meet and greet where they explained about the opportunity. Then had a typing test which wasn't explained about before completing. After the meet and greet session, then had a "rapid" interview. Was contacted for a second interview with a panel. Overall the interviews were not very personal and it seemed like they really didn't care about your schooling, precious work experiences, or background in the field. They didn't really care about getting to know how qualified an individual was, they were just interested in looking for a pretty face. Also, reference checks were not personal. They were completed by email which was a pain due to references not having access to computers in the time frame available. (48 hours)
