I applied online. I interviewed at NorthShore Health Centers.
Interviewed at the Portage facility and the interview lasted about 30 minutes. The facility was very busy and crowded, but all of the employees I spoke with were very helpful and friendly. I interviewed only with the department manager. During the interview I was given a brief overview of the company and the various facilities. The dress code is business casual (no jeans, etc.) and the hours were 7am - 4:30pm OR 7:30am - 5:00pm. The basic job duties were described to me (Microsoft office, inventory, etc.) . The interview questions were difficult only in that they were so ... vague and general. I was shown a printout of charts and graphs and asked how I might obtain information without reference as to exactly what I was supposed to be trying to prove. It's like asking someone what they would add to your grocery list but not telling them what you were planning on cooking. A majority of the questions were hazy; not difficult just not well defined. I couldn't seem to get a firm grasp of exactly what the question was I was supposed to be answering. Maybe he was new to interviewing? . I was also advised about the holidays (They are closed for all of the usual, 12 holidays a year, I believe), The vacation policy (1 week first year, 2 weeks second year an 3 weeks after 5 years (Unless salary than 3 weeks after 3 years)). Also given a bonus 5 days a years personal time. Very good vacation/holiday policy as far as I'm concerned.
- I was asked the following questions: 1) What do you know about NorthShore? 2) Are you familiar with the HIPPA laws? Do you understand them? 3) How would you search for specific data? 4) Do you have experience with inventory? 5) How good are you at Excel? 6) I was shown a series of pages with pie and graph charts and asked if I could read it and what information I could tell from it. 7) I was asked what I might add to or change to make this chart/graph most informative 8) Name 3 of your biggest weaknesses 9) Name 3 of your greatest strengths 10)What 3 positive things would your co-workers say about you? 11) What 3 negative things would your co-workers say about you? 12) Do you have any appointments in the next 6 months? 13) How much do you expect to get paid? (!!! I hate this question !!!) It should be illegal to advertise a position without posting the salary range. ANSWER: For this question I low-balled it and came in at $39k - $42k and I was told that I was in the ballpark. Answer Question
