    Interview

    The interview was extremely easy and casual. Interviewed with one HR rep and one Operations Manager. The Operations Manager seemed a bit rushed, and I felt like I was only evaluated on whether or not I "could do the job." I also got an offer and was not able to negotiate my salary at all.

    I was contacted by email to set up a phone interview, the HR person had scheduling problems and missed the first two times we were supposed to talk. On the third scheduled time we spoke and she asked basic questions about my previous experience. She then scheduled me to come in and meet with the team for a second interview. They had a series of questions about behavior change and specific health issues.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Initially, I was contacted through email in response to my application, but there were several indications that it was a standard email that they were sending to several people at the same time. I set up for a 20 min phone interview with HR that went very well. The associate was prompt and it was generally pleasant, nothing too in depth. I set up for a face to face interview while on that call. The in person interview was quite different. The front desk receptionist was rude and on personal calls throughout my wait in the lobby. I took a quick typing and internet test. The HR associate was roughly 15 min late and commented that she couldn't remember if she had an interview scheduled or not. There was a set of standard questions that she asked me. She then took me on a tour of the facility. While walking through, I was struck by the very casual attire of the staff, and also by the general demeanor of some staff members. They did not seem pleased to see me or we're judging me, it was very awkward. I got a similar vibe from the Heath coach lead who came in to interview me next. She asked me a standard set of questions and clearly wanted text book answers. I left feeling good about the interview and was told when I would receive an offer. When that time came, I followed up with the HR associate and got no response. Two days later (a Friday and late afternoon) I received a generic email saying that I was no longer under consideration.
