    Pros

    They offer a flexible work environment with a focus on good health at work.

    Cons

    My program had a contract with the State of California, which wad kind of a nightmare. The State had several of the most incompetent employees you could imagine but were able to take credit for the great work PHI employees did. It was really an us vs. them type of environment.

    Advice to Management

    There were some issues with hierarchy that ultimately made me need to leave. I'm not a child and don't need to be treated like I'm too low level to talk to an upper manager, especially considering my years of experience and high quality work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Public Health Institute in July 2014.

    Interview

    When I was interviewed, there was a panel of three people that worked at the branch I was at in Sacramento. That was the first time I had a panel of interviewers, but they were very nice and welcoming and didn't make me feel pressured at all when I was answering their questions. They did expect me to answer questions specifically about telehealth, even though the application stated that you didn't need to have specific experience in telehealth. I answered to the best of my ability and drew from past internships and experiences and education, and apparently that was good enough because I got the position! Make sure to have solid references that will give you a good recommendation, as well, because they contacted all three of mine.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me specific scenarios about how I would research different areas and fields of healthcare, specifically telehealth and telemedicine   Answer Question
