    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edmond, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alberta Health Services (Edmond, OK).

    Interview

    Manager contact several weeks after the competition closing date. Offered an apology stating that the delay was the result of unrealistic work loads .... quite an odd statement to make to a potential non exempt employee. Interview rescheduled by manager twice. On the third go, it seemed as though a general lack of regard existed given that the time agreed to was delayed by 20 minutes with no communication from the manager or admin staff concerning the delay. Eventually participated in a very informal interview by a panel of 6 and offered the position 3 days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing specific that comes to mind, quite a mindless interview tool   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little opportunity for negotiation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alberta Health Services.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was very transparent about how the process would work and the hiring timeline, both in the job posting and after receiving my application. My first round interview was a phone call with the hiring manager. In the second round, I talked to different people on the team. There was ample opportunity to ask everyone questions about what I should expect from the job, so I felt informed by the time I got an offer.
