    I worked at Neighborhood Health Plan of RI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Neighborhood is staffed by really nice people. I enjoyed working there and made a lot of friends with my coworkers. Some opportunity to advance although the most skilled person isn't necessarily hired for the jobs. 37.5 work week.

    Cons

    The HR Department is Kafka-esque. These are just not smart people at all and they are very unprofessional. If you go down to HR for some information they'll just look at you and not even ask if you need help. They screw with the hiring process so that managers can't get the people they want. HR doesn't post salary bands even though the jobs are graded. They routinely let talented people quit and walk out the door and don't try to retain them at all. HR plays dirty tricks on people who apply to get them to accept lower salaries than their salary band. HR has a slippery grip on some labor laws.

    Advice to Management

    Get better HR people. I know it's hard to find smart people who work in HR but the clowns they had when I left were ridiculous. Don't let smart people walk out the door. HR doesn't screen employees to see who could benefit from specific career development. People get sick of this and feel like the opportunities are there and leave, taking all their institutional knowledge with them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Neighborhood Health Plan of RI in February 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by Adecco, the firm that NHPRI uses to handle its staffing, the next day. The process consisted of an in-person first round interview with the dept. manager and a second round interview with team member and a different department manager. Received an offer two days after second round interview. HR wanted me to decide within 24 hours which I could not do without any benefits information. HR negotiated and only gave me 2 and a half days to decide. Called to decline offer with HR but they did not answer so I left a msg asking for a call back. I tried contacting them several times over the next few days to decline the offer but they were slow and unresponsive. When they got back in touch with me they were still expecting me to accept the offer though I passed the decision deadline by 4 days. HR is a bulldog and I did not like how they handled the situation.

    Reasons for Declining

    Loved the manager, did not like the team members. HR was really aggressive about wanting a decision in less than 24 hours with NO information on employee benefits and I never received information on what the employee contribution to the health plan was. Met my minimum salary but I received a better offer at a better company elsewhere.
