    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through their website. The recruiter contacted me via email. I was given an assignment (not sure why this wasn't after the phone screen), and then did an initial phone screen with the recruiter, followed by a meeting with the hiring manager.

    I understand this is a startup, but it was rather disorganized when working with the recruiter. I also was not sure why I was given an assignment (took about 2 hours) prior to the initial phone screen. Typically, the screen comes first because it ends up potentially wasting time for the pool of candidates (I don't think the recruiter will save much or any time doing it the other way around).

    One thing that worried me was when I was discussing the position with the hiring manager. He was unfamiliar with the different software used in this field and I had to explain the pros and cons for using each. I thought that maybe he was trying to check for my understanding, but it was clear he's unaware. After I realized this company is not knowledgable in the specific feild I'm applying for, I almost immediately gave up on the interview and this company. I was looking for a position and a company where I can learn and develop my skills. This position and company might not be there yet and still figuring out this industry.

    At this time, this company might be better suited for those with little to no work experience.

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Rounds.

    Interview

    This was probably the funniest interview process. I have interviewed with some very competitive organizations but have never been given a take-home exercise at the start of the process itself!

    Round 1 - A 10 minutes conversation with the HR recruiter
    Round 2 - A take home exercise?

    At this point - all I knew about the role was from the job posting. Their software isn't public either - as a result the take-home exercise seemed very vague. I guess I just expected more from a multi-million dollar funded organization. Even the largest companies with thousands of applications per role have one round of conversation between the recruiting manager and the interviewee before a take-home exercise - just something I would like to suggest as a possible change to the process I guess.

    Care Services Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Yarmouth, ME
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (Yarmouth, ME) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This was my first interview with grand rounds. It was scheduled to be a phone interview, although we actually ended up talking on Google Hangouts (with video.) I submitted my resume and got the offer for the first interview via email within three days. The first interview itself took place a week later. Aside from the email inviting me to interview and the scheduling invitation itself, I did not receive any additional communication from the company or from the interviewer prior to the interview. I could tell from the schedule invite that the interview would be short (30 minutes) so I assumed it would be a brief, standard screening interview. This assumption proved to be correct.

    Care Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (Reno, NV) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiting agency. I was contacted via email and was guided along by the recruiter the whole way. The company called me in for an in-person interview. I met with 2 of the 4 people I was supposed to meet with. (The other 2 weren't in the office.) Then, they called me up for a phone interview. I spoke with 1 of the 2 people I was supposed to talk with. (The other one wasn't available.) The whole thing was backwards.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Very efficient process that was well-communicated to me in advance. There were just enough meetings for them to get to know me, and no more or less. Nearly everyone I met with was great; they were surprisingly supportive, considering the interview process can be so awkward for all involved. Unlike some reports I see below, the recruiters I worked with were fantastic also.

    Only weird observation is that I was continually confused by the conflicting messages I received about the role, and kept wondering, "what exactly is the role's objective?" Even within the same team, one person would say, "We really need someone to do XYZ" while another would say, "We don't do XYZ here and don't plan to." Naturally, not knowing if your skills are relevant or not can make it difficult for you to sell yourself. Plan to pivot quickly because you may not have another opportunity to course correct.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen. Standard interview and asked regular questions, why Grand Rounds etc. I was impressed by the efficiency of the process, which I was not expecting having read reviews of the interview experience. Was told I would be notified of decision in 24 hours and I was. Unfortunately did not get progressed, but when I asked why not, I was given immediate feedback.

    Content Strategist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Ridiculous interview process, which took a month to complete. Went through two phone interviews, a take home exercise, and finally a FOUR HOUR onsite interview that kicked off with a 45 minute power point presentation. If you're subjecting someone to that much, you should have a pretty strong interest in them, no? After all this, I was told they wanted someone with more experience. They were well aware of my experience from the beginning, so why go through all of this? When job hunting, a fast no is the next best thing to a yes. These guys clearly don't know what they want and waste people's valuable time. Take a pass on this one.

    Staff Physician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Grand Rounds in September 2016.

    Interview

    I initially applied for the job online through their website. I didn't hear from them for over 2 months, after which they reached out with interest via email to confirm continued interest. The interview process was long and a bit tedious. First one of their recruiters called me and discussed the position, asked me some basic questions about myself. I then was asked to do a sample write up of a medical case. Once they approved my writing abilities, they then asked me to do a mock patient encounter. Once they got good feedback about that, they then set me up for video interviews with different people from the medical team (five 30 minute interviews). I elected to do them back-to-back since I was under time constraints with an opposing job offer. It was tiring, but overall enjoyable. I spoke with the medical director, the vice president of the medical team, two staff physicians and a physician assistant. I kept getting positive feedback during the actual phone interviews, so I was very surprised when they said they weren't going to offer me the position. It made the phone conversations seem fake, which was disappointing in a company that prides themselves on their hiring process to ensure obtaining employees that will be the best fit are brought on board. If they regard their process so highly, they shouldn't say things to the candidate personally like "you would be a great asset to our team," "I think you'd make a great addition," and have the end result seem quite the opposite.
