    People and Culture Development Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Centura Health (Denver, CO) in August 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for a role whose scope includes improving Centura’s leadership and culture - a role I was told was important to the organization. I came in for multiple individual and team interviews and delivered a presentation. The interviews and my presentation seemed to go extremely well, with clear resonance.

    At the end of the interviews, the hiring manager told me that I was one of the finalists for the role, and I would hear within a week or two about a decision.

    Not only did I not hear anything over the proceeding 3+ months, I was never pro-actively communicated to once in that time, by the hiring manager or the recruiting team. The only way I have gotten any information was by emailing them, multiple times with few replies. When they did respond, I was continually pushed off in those communications, with minimal information provided.

    I am fine with not having gotten an offer - that is the way of the job market. But to not be given any communication, any updates, with me being a finalist and for a high-value role (really for any professional role), is inexcusable. It is outlier behavior in the job market for professional roles such as this. It has given me a terrible candidate experience, and is particularly surprising given Centura’s mission of “nurturing communities” and values including “compassion, integrity, and respect”. In fact, my interview presentation included my alignment with that mission and values, and it is incredibly disappointing that Centura is not living up to these (and more).

    Another “highlight”: I was required to provide 4 people as references during the process, and those people took time out of their day to do fill out the lengthy reference tool - at 30 questions, lengthier than any they had every seen. It was a big favor they did for me. And, apparently I was not in fact close to an offer, so that favor and these people’s time were for naught. It is a standard in the talent acquisition field for references to only be checked at the end of a hiring process, near an offer. That is the practice for this very reason in point: to not give candidates unnecessary hoops to jump through, and give them a poor candidate experience. Which this has most definitely been.

    Interview Questions

    • Ranged from questions about my OD and coaching styles, behavioral interview questions, and a number of questions asking me to be very vulnerable about thoughts and emotions.   Answer Question

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centura Health.

    Interview

    First step was a 30 minute phone screen with a recruiter. They asked questions about my resume and work experience. I had applied for two open positions, and the recruiter scheduled an in-person interview with the hiring managers. The first one, I interviewed 1:1 with the executive the role would be supporting. Lots of behavioral based questions. The interviewer was unprofessional. He made comments about how the person he'd interviewed before me had given such a bad answer to one of the questions and went on about it. He also mentioned that some of the executive assistants in the office really like to gossip. Ironic since he also kept emphasizing what a Christian and mission-driven organization Centura is. The second interview, the recruiter called me 30 minutes before I was supposed to leave and said the executive had an emergency come up, which was a lie. I received an email later saying that they'd filled the position. Shady interview practices overall.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Centura Health in January 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through Centura Health website. Followed by an emailed assessment and they called me about two weeks later with an in person interview. After I arrived a nurse gave me a tour of the unit and then I had my interview is the nurse manager. The main thing that I thought was strange was after the interview was complete she told me that they didn’t have an open position available? I was very confused because the position I applied for had become available only a few weeks before but she asked me back for a second interview anyways to have my information on file as soon as a position opened up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Centura Health (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    I interviewed with over 20 people within a 6-7 month period. The process was incredibly frustrating with very litte communication. I felt like I was inconveniencing them for interviewing me. They also gave me a personality assessment that they refused to give me the results of. I regret ever applying for the role.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Centura Health (New York, NY) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I had 1 recruiter interview 3 weeks after applying. She asked basic questions about my current job. The next week I had 2 other interviews. With the hiring manager and my future team. They use a behavioral style of interview. I googled that method to prepare. In the 2nd interview with the hiring team they asked more personal and easy-going questions to get to know me. A few hours later they asked for references. I made sure all my references completed their survey the next morning and 2-3 days later they called with an offer. I was able to negotiate salary.
