    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Harborview Medical Center.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by panel interview with straightforward, behavioral questions based on previous work experience. The process took a long time because HR was very slow and they did a background check. The hiring manager did a good job of keeping me up to date and helping to manage expectations about the pace of HR finishing their work. It took a really long time between the offer and the official offer letter, which was a little frustrating.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time... to evaluate team skills, initiative taking, flexibility   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    quick, phone, not much room for negotiation as the wages are based on a union negotiated contract.
