    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

    Physician (Laboratory Specialist) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alberta Health Services.

    Interview

    The position posted on national specialty websites listed UAH as the hospital where the successful candidate would work. As a U of A graduate, I learned by talking to former colleagues that the description was wrong, and that the job was actually based at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Having two years of postdoctoral fellowships, and having trained there, I thought I had a chance of at least interviewing. I called the chief of department to express my interest and she said right away my CV was rejected for lack of experience, even though they had hired several of my colleagues without additional training. The discussion was extremely unprofessional and rude, and left me relieved I did not get the job to work with this person.

    Interview Questions

    • There were none, just thinly veiled insults at my qualifications and lies about the previously hired candidates.   Answer Question
