    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Medical Association (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone interview with HR then a day or two later I was contacted to do a second phone screen with the hiring manager. I had the phone screen with the hiring manager and was asked to come for a face to face interview with the hiring manager and the team. I came in for a face to face interview with the team and the VP. Overall interview was average.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Medical Association (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    HR conducted a brief phone screen and then sent an email regarding an in-person interview. Overall HR did an excellent job with follow-up and scheduling as well as explaining the functions of the AMA. From there, the experience turned completely unprofessional. The interview was scheduled for five hours with peers and the hiring manager; bathroom breaks and water were not offered and the motion sensor lights kept going off in the room. One peer interviewee essentially walked out of the interview when I asked how the two roles, which work closely together, collaborate on strategy development. She was incredibly rude and condescending, a telling sign of management culture. I was invited for a second round interview. The SVP kept reiterating needing a candidate who could navigate red tape and bureaucracy, again another red flag about the organization's culture. Overall this department seems lost in its purpose and direction. I was never contacted by HR regarding the status of my application.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Medical Association (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening with HR 2 weeks after submitting resume/application through their website (vague voicemail left at EOD asked to call back re: position, with no indication of what to expect). Screening took 5 minutes (again, at end of day): very brief walk-through of experience, why are you a good fit, current salary. When pushed back re: disclosing salary, was told that HR couldn't provide a range until I provided my current salary. Despite frustration with the situation, I disclosed my current salary and was told the starting point for the role's salary range (not given high end). HR told me my desired range suggests I might not be interested in the position, and when I pushed back with flexibility depending on role, HR wrote down a lower range than I previously stated (HR basically negotiated my desired range with me?). Was told they would want to bring me in for an interview, and received email that week requesting in-person interview (given 2 time slots over 2 days to choose from, both about 1wk out from invitation). Also requested three individual writing samples 1-2 days before the interview to review "before the interview," which seemed abrupt and slightly disorganized. Luckily, I had some available, or I'd be left scrambling at the last minute.

    First interview involved same HR rep and hiring manager (separately). HR "interview" basically involved walking through company facts/info, given benefits overview, and asked a few "warm-up questions" that I was told would not be used in decision (but I'm sure they were...) Felt very strange. Was led to second part with hiring manager. Very nice, normal interview questions, good rapport, open with questions about company/role. Received an invitation for 2nd interview (same 2 slots/days option). Second interview did not involve HR. Met only with hiring manager (second time, separately from others), and two higher-ups (together). Again, everyone was incredibly nice. Asked normal, thoughtful questions, probed for more details re: certain situations/experiences, and was told they'd be making a decision within the week.

    I followed up with the hiring manager after two weeks, and received no reply. I followed up with HR two weeks after that, and received a rejection within the hour. Frustrating to think that they could have informed me earlier of their decision, or that I might have just never heard back regarding a decision (when I was a finalist). Felt unprofessional.

    Technical Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Medical Association.

    Interview

    The hiring process meets up to the hype. The interviews were difficult and thorough. Questions probed technical competency, project management experience & textbook knowledge, General Business Operations.

     Depending on the interviewer, you may be asked vague hypotheticals. If this happens to you, create a story around the hypothetical and explain the process you would follow to solve it. They are looking to see how you problem solve so be thorough in explaining your process. Also be aware the hypothetical may be based on actually problems and tasks you will be required to complete if they give you the position.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Medical Association (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview took about three hours. First with HR, it was just about the general information about me, working authority, working hours, etc. Then, I talked with a young team member of the data team, and he just walked through my resume in general. The last interview was with the team leader. That was a deep one on my resume. For I never took an interview in that long time, I didn't perform well in the third one.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American Medical Association (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It was over all a horrible experience, and it should have been a clue to me that it would not be a good company to work for, but I needed the job at the time, So I took it. It took months to get through the whole process, not including the first month, when, after replying they were interested to my resume, hey told me they chose others to interview, and were not longer interested in me, and then a month later called back and told me they were interested. Hiring managers took days and weeks to get back to continue each next step in processs. HR seem useless and gave wrong information. But again, when you need a job, you unfortunately try and ignore most of the negative stuff.
