    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at HCSC (Richardson, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting an application for the position, a recruiter contacted me very quickly. However, the entire phone screen only lasted 15 minutes and, other than verifying some experiences on my resume, she only asked me one question. I got the feeling that they were just using me to "validate" internal candidates they had already picked. After that, I never heard from them again - not even a form letter to let me know I was no longer being considered. It's been nearly two months since that call.

    Senior Business Analyst - IT Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCSC (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Have seen this same job posted over and over which was somewhat suspicious. I did interview for the role but never heard back from HR. I know my skill sets were top caliber and have 15 years of experience in numerous IT technologies. Now that i have seen the outsourcing news i believe these jobs were intentionally 'unfilled' so HSCS could claim it could not find qualified employees while importing their H1B visas.

    Interview Questions

    • If they are importing H1Bs to do the work what is the point of even going through the questions. Their so called IT related computer test was the most difficult and antiquated Cobol related exam that again looks to have been designed that way from the go. The math and verbal portion was equally as hard and i am positive there is no H1B alive that could pass this test.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HCSC.

    Interview

    HR will contact you to set up an interview date and time. This is not the same person who will conduct your interview. At the first and second interview you will have one person asking standard Behavioral Interview questions and a second person writing down your answers. Depending on the department and the job role, you may be asked to a panel interview for the second or third interview. You should hear back from HR with a decline letter, or from your interviewer with a job offer within 1-2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Research and prepare for Behavioral Interview questions. They ask the standard stuff like "Tell me about a time when you worked with someone you disagreed with/ an extremely difficult project/ an extremely fulfilling project/etc.. How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HCSC (Tulsa, OK) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the internal recruiter at our company to set up an interview. Since this is my current director I was at ease during the process. I presented my plan if I were to receive the promotion; however, I let my reputation speak for itself. Even though I have worked under this director for nine years, she was unaware of my BS and MBA degree. Upon wrapping up the interview, I was informed I was top candidate and they would be in touch to set up a second interview with my Senior VP.
