    First contact was an email from the manager. I had a phone interview and an in person interview. The questions were straightforward with a test on MRI physics. The HR part involves fingerprinting and a physical that involves more lifting than any other job I have applied. I had to interview with 3 different managers. There were no physicians involved. In my other job interviews there were physicians involved.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hershey Medical Center (Hershey, PA).

    Interview

    disorganized. after joining the organization I recognized that I did not interview with important and relevant stakeholders to my position. This made it difficult to be effective initially as it was even more challenging to connect with the proper employees. It also created confusion as to who is responsible for what.

    The interview process itself was easy. I was brought in for a series of interviews, a mixture of 1:1 and group sessions. There were no hardball questions - focus was on past experience and education, as well as any concerns/issues with shared background. No case-style questions or presentations required.

    There was one group session that last approximately 1 hours - in a group of 6 interviewers, I spoke for only 5 minutes out the entire meeting, as interviewers lost focus and chatted amongst themselves. I had to force myself into the conversations so as to not be lost in the disorganization.
