I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at University of Virginia Health System in August 2014.Interview Details
The interview for this position is just like all of the other access associate positions. I have been on a few of them and they ask the same questions. I met with my supervisor and the manager.
They give you an overview of the position and then ask you questions.
Good and bad excuses for being late?
How to organize your work?
What are your career goals?
When was the last time you were late to work and why?
Do you like working in a team?
What would you do if a coworker doesn't pull their own weight?
If they ask you if your supervisor knows you're looking and you tell them you did not tell them, it will be the "kiss of death". You will be rejected.
I got a call from HR exactly a week after my interview. You have 48 hrs to accept or reject the offer if you get one. Make sure you negotiate because they will definitely lowball you. They want top notch people for cheap.Interview Questions
