    Surgical Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jackson, MS
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at California Pacific Medical Center (Jackson, MS) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly short. They basically just asked me what were my strengths and weaknesses and I told them. It is very unfortunate for me that they let me go on such short notice without any warning. They also asked me what was my availability as far as shifts and times that I am free to work. I provided them with all of this information very accurately and I feel that they still pretty much did me wrong. They were not considerate of the fact that I am a first-time traveler and this is a very new experience for me. I don't think they cared about this at all. Not one bit...which lead leads me to the conclusion that I will never work for this hospital for future reference; even if I was offered a position. My overall experience was all bad.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at California Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a two part-interview; part one was a phone interview with the Vice-Chairman of the transplant department. We discussed his vision for the new program and how my experience would fit with their needs. We discussed the goals of the project and the funding available.

    Part two was a phone interview with the department manager. She and I have worked together for over ten years so the discussion was brief. we discussed the position and each asked a few questions about needs and expectations. We discussed my need for a part-time position in order to focus on my children and determined a schedule that would work for both parties.

    The interviews were somewhat casual due to the long-standing work history the three of us share.

    Physical Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at California Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    1 phone screen, 1 informational phone call and an in person interview with 2 managers & a PT. The process seemed unorganized - poor directions given, the support staff didn't know a PT department existed, the PT supervisor was difficult to get a hold of & response was slow.

    Interview Questions

    • The lack of behavioral questions was unexpected. All the questions were case based with specific, detailed questions on lab values, initial evals, and discharge recommendations (4-5 hypothetical case situations). The interview felt like they had a checklist of key buzzwords they wanted me to say - if I said the concept but didn't say the exact word, they kept awkwardly prompting. Several CA regulation specific questions were also asked.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The environment didn't seem supportive or focused on learning. It was hectic, chaotic & unaware employees. Gut feeling told me this was not a place that I'd enjoy working.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at California Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    There is a first come first serve basis on applying for an initial orientation. Once you schedule an orientation and attend it, you can pick which campus hospital you wish to interview at. At the California campus, there was only a one-on-one interview. I was asked basic questions just so that the recruiter can know who I am and see what my goals are.
