    I have been working at Universal Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best part of working for UHS are the great people I get to work with, and the wonderful mission of the organization. By that I am referring to what we do--provide clean, quality medical equipment to healthcare entities so they can treat patients.

    The pay and benefits are decent, training is excellent, and the depth of the organization's equipment inventory is really impressive.

    Cons

    Communication in organizations this large always seems to be a challenge. This is no different at UHS. Also, it seems as though reorganization is fairly common, especially in higher level roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a leadership mentoring program that teaches administrative staff how to effectively communicate with employees so they feel like valued team-members. It's one thing to verbalize that employees are the organization's most valuable asset. It's an entirely different thing to actually demonstrate those sentiments in a meaningful way--not meaningful to the manager, meaningful to the employee. The only way to accomplish that is to take a little time to get to know your staff.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Universal Hospital in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the whole process took approximately two weeks. I first had a phone interview, followed by my first interview the next week. I then had to take a Watson-Glaser test in order to move forward. I must have done well because I was scheduled for another interview with the Houston area manger the following week.

    Interview Questions
    • My interview was more of a discussion rather than the typical interview questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They asked me for my salary expectations and I said a number, which that closely under-matched. With bonuses I should make over my initial request.
