    I have been working at Sanford Health


    Truly believes in providing quality healthcare to patients. A lot of emphasis on safety and standardized practices. A lot of really good people working in middle management and several in senior management. Gives back to the community. Growing company. Taking on significant projects with World Clinics and research on a cure for diabetes. Have become a large player in the Midwest. Has developed, and earned, a good reputation.


    Has had some growing pains with recent mergers (technology, management merger/restructuring, etc.). There have been some good people who have left the company out of frustration of workload, lack of recognition and few opportunities for advancement as they pared down senior and middle management several times. More work put on fewer people to save money and 'right size'. However, there have been some people who have left (voluntarily or otherwise) who needed to go, and I believe that's a good thing - it shows we want top performers and it sends the right message to those who have worked hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be time to step back and reevaluate whether the current management structure is appropriate, versus using attrition to determine structure and, therefore. needs.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sanford Health.

    Interview Details

    HR is slow to respond. First you have a telephonic interview by HR then one with the supervising managers. May need to come back and re-interview if they have several candidates in mind.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. Pay is based on your years of experience. If you do not have experience everyone starts at a low rate. South Dakota is one of the worst paying states for nurses.
