    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Centra Health (Lynchburg, VA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Large panel with endless questions primarily interested in how 'cheap' they could get me. Not so much interested in what I could do for them since I overshot the mark on starting salary, so I took it anyway to wait for something better to come along.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I treat a doctor if they demanded something out of the ordinary. They quizzed me on my general knowledge and past history. They seemed only interested in how much they could get me to work for.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Centra Health (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was made to feel very comfortable and given a really detailed run down of what expectations I would have to meet as an employee in the facility. The interviewer took the time to make sure I knew all about what I would be doing and what I need to expect, including talking to me about ways to make my commute easier (many employees carpool and I was invited to join if hired).

    Group Interview Including Pathologist, Manager, Supervisor, and Building Manager.

    Health Unit Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Centra Health (Lynchburg, VA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend that the position would be opening up soon and to apply. Once I applied the friend reached out to the hiring manager to pull my application. I interviewed and two days later received a call from HR saying that they would like to extend an offer. I had a few papers to sign, an on boarding interview/drug and medical screening for hire, and then a one day orientation. From what I've heard, many jobs at Centra are essentially filled before they are even put on their web page with the exception of RN, CNA, and licensed practitioners (areas they are incredibly short staffed in). I feel like I was definitely hired because of who I knew, but I don' t know how much I would approve of their process if I was a random and non-connected applicant.
