    Interview

    Started with your basic phone interview, after about a month I was called by a different hiring manager for a different position at a different site. We had quick phone interview and he asked me to come in for a face to face. Met the team at the site and everyone I talked to was amazing and more then helpful! After 2 weeks or so was called by HR and received offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call from HR within a couple days asking to schedule an initial phone interview. HR lady was very nice, job description and salary met expectations and she said I was a definite good fit for the position. She told me to let her know if I had not been contacted within a couple of days for a follow-up interview with the a department rep and she would "bug them until they did." Over the next several weeks, I received no correspondence regarding the position. I both emailed and called with no reply. Very unprofessional and disappointing interaction given CHOP's reputation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was for a brand new unit that was set to start almost a year out from when I first applied. The process took a long time but the recruiter kept me informed the entire time and was very vocal about her interest in me. I was very confident during the process although under qualified from the job description alone. The manager, director, and recruiter were very wise and could see that although I did not have the medical RN experience, I was enthusiastic about the position. They began to question me about my interest in leadership roles in the hospital for the future.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in April 2016.

    Interview

    Took about a month until being called to schedule a phone screen interview. Phone screen lasted about 20-25 minutes. Mix of behavioral and typical interview questions. Didn't really go over my resume at all. Recruiter was nice and informed me about the next steps in the hiring process if chosen to move forward. I'll update this if I make it to the next round. Pay for this position is lower than I'd like compared to what CROs pay clinical research assistants.

    Interview Questions

    Patient Service Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    - Contact from talent acquisition representative
    - Received a phone interview
    - Received a face to face interview
    - References

    I assumed the 1:1 interview went great because the interviewer said I was exactly what they were looking for and she made it seem like they were interested in me. After the interview I was asked to have 5 references take a survey for my employment. I never heard back from anyone so I contacted the acquisition representative after a week. She never heard anything. I figured if they weren't interested they would of let me know already by now it was already 3 weeks after the interview. I had high hopes. Finally a month later after reaching out to the acquisition representative again she said she would find out. Come to find out they did not offer me the job and have decided to go with another candidate. I'm not upset about not getting the job, more so that no one had the common decency to let me know and they lead me on wasting my time. I could of found another job while waiting for their response. I will never fill out with them again after this experience.
