- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 5+ months – interviewed at University of Virginia Health System (Charlottesville, VA) in December 2014.
Applied and was contacted by a recruiter to set up a 3 hour onsite interview. It seemed odd to me that they called me in for 3 hours of interviews based solely on my resume without so much as a phone screen. On interview day, there were 3 hour long interviews, one from the hiring manager, one from a peer and one from two individuals who would report to this manager position. Each of the three interviewers had a single Behavioral Interview question (i.e. tell me about a time you had a conflict with the team you were working with). The rest of the questions were related to previous work history and job fit.
The interview was 3 hours long without a break. Nobody offered so much as a cup of water during the process. After the interview I followed up with the recruiter multiple times, but didn't get any real feedback from her for more than 3 months when I was told that I was not selected. On interview day the hiring manager had told me that they were interviewing multiple candidates and would be making a hiring decision within a couple of weeks.
