    I have been working at Upper Chesapeake Health

    Pros

    People care about each other. Friendly atmosphere. Desire to be the best. Well managed from a business perspective. Opportunities to grow. Good future potential in light of the coming merger with University of Maryland Medical System.

    Cons

    Too lenient at times with poor behaviors. Too focused on growing from within. Need to bring in more outside people to bring in new ideas.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Upper Chesapeake Health in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    First I was contacted by the recruiter. I had one phone interview with an HR person. Then I had a phone interview with my direct supervisor. This was followed by a long day of interviews with my direct supervisor, then her supervisor, then employees who I would supervise, several physician interviews and then a final interview with my direct supervisor. After that, my direct supervisor called to clarify a couple of points. There was some time taken to check my references and finally the offer was made and we went into the negotiation phase.
