    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.

    Two interviewers - both senior Case Managers. Interviewed downtown. They both took turns asking questions and probing and paraphrasing to clarify some answers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Alberta Health Services in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the Director of Clinical Projects, an Enterprise Architect, and an RPN. Interview was about 1 hour long. After the Director performed the reference checks he told me that he was going to offer me the job but was waiting for the budget to be approved. After waiting 10 months I received an email that that they had hired someone internal. When I inquired as to what had happened, I was told by HR that soon after I had my interview they had put into place a hiring restraint and decided to look internally for an applicant instead. What's interesting is that when I interviewed for the position I knew at that time that a hiring restraint was in place but I was told that "as long as the job was in the hopper they could fill the position".

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alberta Health Services (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    There is always two or more interviewers in the room which makes keeping composure a little difficult. The manager was friendly and easy going and the others seem just as nervous as I was. They take turns asking ALOT of questions that you probably wont remember afterwards as they are not always what you will expect. Each interview is unique to the job posting.
