    Interview

    Phone Interview with Continuous Improvement Specialist. Its nothing but a joke for them! The interviewer wasn't available to interview except after 6pm for few minutes & wasn't prepared or ready! Didn't get any available times & had to interview only at one time slot. Asked a bunch of questions & sent a rejection notification within 12 hours. And if you're not interested in the candidate in the first place & are not gonna give the time to interview properly then god bless the one who ultimately gets hired!! Wasn't expecting this level of un-professionalism from Cleveland Clinic!!

    Systems Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, OH) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter from CC and asked to apply for a job. I did that, I performed a phone screening, then one with the hiring manager. I was called in for an interview with 5 members of the team (two Directors, one manager, and two contributors). I felt the first interviewer was somewhat of a jerk and either didn't want to be there, or felt I wasn't qualified enough as his tone was one of arrogance. The next person was a manager and he was a great guy who asked straight forward questions and very personable. That was followed by two individuals from a Service Desk (Director, Ind. Cont.). The Director was great (funny and fully of energy), her counterpart was no-so-much. He was definitely more 'short' with his questions and did not smile much. My final interview was with the hiring Director. It went well; however, it seems their organization is too busy trying build a rigid process to fit their problems using non-technical help, instead of hiring some technical people to help design a more flexible one ... one that works. To me, it appeared they can't see the forest through the proverbial trees. When I left, I knew I was not a good fit. This particular organization has some issues and quite honestly, I didn't want to be any part of it. I advised the hiring manager to remove me from consideration... she was gracious in her reply and wished me luck. There are no hard feelings... and nothing personal against CC or the team that interviewed me.

    Digital Marketing & Communications Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, OH) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online. About a week later, I was contacted by HR, who asked routine questions regarding the position, as well as several behavioral questions. I was brought in for an interview with the director and manager of digital marketing.

    The interview focused on the technical components of the job, and was heavy on background experience, with a focus teamwork. There were several behavioral questions peppered into the fray as well. Overall, they were nice: one stiff and calculated, the other jovial and forthcoming.

    When I asked about the position, both struggled to coherently sum up its duty within in 60 seconds.

    I was called for a second - final - interview with a panel that consisted of fancy titles. They required I submit 5 references in advance, two of which had to be former managers. If you haven't yet experienced the joy of working with the SkillShare system, buckle up.

    The second interview focused on background experiences. Each panel member asked questions related to their specific field. Some of the questions included classics such as "tell me about a time," or "how would you say you." Overall, not bad.

    What I found incredibly eye opening was how the marketing account services director explained to the panel that a rock star for the position is someone that thrives in the gray area. This was in response to my question regarding the role and how it interfaces with various departments.

    Could be my rigidity and lack of experience working in cross-functional teams nixed me.

    Either way, I hope this helps the next person who applies for the role. Don't fret about technical PPC aspects too much. They work with an agency who manages the campaigns and turns the dials. They also have an in-house data science team.

    Focus more on your experiences using the STAR approach. Answer before they ask.

    Sadly, HR did not have the courtesy to notify me of a decision, even after I reached out to the formerly responsive individual in HR.

    This speaks volumes about their hiring practices. Anyone can talk a big game, but true communication fell through at this critical junction. I was just another number in a game where speed matters most. Churn and burn.

    Finalists spent a lot of time reaching out and gathering references, taking time out of their day, preparing and writing follow up notes. Such as shame.

    To the next lucky candidate - scratch the thank you notes and traditional hokus-pokus. I'm guessing they have a rigid policy. This is not a cushy job where love notes help fill a role.

    Always remember, interview them as much as they interview you. Just the facts.

    Good luck!

    Interview

    Extremely unprofessional and condescending. Was referred to as “honey” and felt like I was wasting their time throughout interview because they were clearly not interested in me. Extremely disappointed with such a prominent healthcare company. Cannot put into words how unprofessional members of this department were. Had to complete an hour-long assignment and did not receive any feedback on it.
