    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Greenville Health System (Greenville, SC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with supervisor and interviewed face-to-face with Hiring Team. Received a tour of the facility. The Hiring Team looked extremely uncomfortable. If the position is to hire an internal employee, I recommend not posting it for external candidate. It's a waste of the external candidates time.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Greenville Health System (Greenville, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone by an AA. An initial interview was scheduled at a mutually agreeable time and date with 3 managers. The interview began 20 minutes late. The cause for the late start was not explained. The interview was 90 minutes long (See interview questions section below for details). My overall impression was this was a successful interview. The "head manager" indicated they were very interested in me as well as extremely impressed with my resume and interview abilities. It was explained that there were a few internal candidates in the running and they would be my greatest competition as GHS favors internal candidates. Salary, schedule, benefits and the like were not discussed as it was explained this is all handled by HR. The "head manager" called me the next day with several additional follow up questions regarding my work history and additional personality focused questions. Approximately one week later I was again contacted by the same AA who indicated a second interview was requested by an addition 4 managers. This interview went much like the first (again see interview questions section for details). All 7 managers were very nice, positive, encouraging with great feedback and very welcoming. I was informed I would be hearing from HR should we be moving forward. I was approximately 30 minutes away when I received a frantic voicemail and email from the AA who coordinated the interviews indicating the "head manager" wanted to see me and they requested I return immediately. Of course, I did so, although very inconvenient. I discovered upon my return that I was to have been scheduled for a follow up meeting with him immediately following the 2nd interview. The AA had failed to do so. The "head manager" was very irritated by this as his current AA had failed to follow basic instructions leading to a poor candidate experience and unprofessional appearance to say the least. That meeting went very well. We discussed a handful of follow up questions regarding my personality fit with the group etc. I was informed I was the leading candidate and the AA who had been my contact throughout the process was now no longer in the running (For obvious reasons).There was one other internal candidate who had yet to apply. The deadline for that candidate to do so was the next day. The "head manager" would email me with an update to let me know if that took place and what to expect from there. He did email the next day. He would be contacting HR for processing and an offer. After 4 days I was contacted by an HR Representative by phone. She began by identified herself and verified I had in fact interviewed with the "head manager". She then abruptly blurted out an hourly dollar amount and asked if I accept. I indicated I was not privet to the entire compensation package as a whole, explained that benefits, vacation, holidays etc. had not yet been addressed and I would need that information to calculate whether this would be feasible for me. I was directed to their website. (Later upon review the web site did in fact have a section with health coverage options; however, there was no additional information regarding vacation and holiday schedules etc.) I also indicated I would like time to review and consider this offer. I was told this was not an option. Should I decline, they would be moving forward with the next candidate. The HR woman was extremely unprofessional as well as rude and unfriendly. I was shocked to be honest. I also enquired how they arrived at the dollar amount as it seemed exceedingly low. Quite honestly down right insulting. I was told that the only criteria used to arrive at this amount was years in an equivalent role. They scrutinized my resume detailing some of my experience would not be considered. Although some of my experience was administrative in nature they did not feel it should be considered as it was not a direct support role. They would only consider 4 out of 15 years experience. She also indicated that if I omitted any work experience (from working age 15 on) that was "on me". I told her I no longer include my work history from high school, although administrative, seemed no longer applicable. In total I have 25 years experience in administration and I would be happy to provide tax records. She said it was too late for that now. To summarize, I was very taken aback by the unprofessional attitude and approach this offer was presented in. The HR woman lacked professionalism as well as tact. The process and criteria in which salary is determined seems exceptionally flawed as well as the candidate experience as a whole. Clearly, I should have seen the red flags with the incompetence's of the interview coordination. For such a large concern this was an astoundingly poor process. I have declined their further attempts to have me come aboard as this is not an environment that works for me. Truly appalling.
