    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Seattle, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume I received a phone call asking to set up a phone interview with the team recruiter. The Phone interview lasted approximately 30 minutes and went very well. The recruiter ask me what my salary expectations were and I replied that I would like to make what I was making at my last job when I left, which was $19.50 an hour. He replied " oh I think we can do better than that with your amount of experience". I replied well that would be great. He said he was actually going to recommend me for the job to the hiring manager. After checking my references I would be receiving a phone call requesting a face-to-face interview.
    I received a phone call on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and set up an interview for the following Tuesday. I was supposed to be interviewed by 3 people however, just one of the managers showed up late to interview me. After answering normal interview questions, she said I understand you interviewed on the phone with Lolo. I replied yes I did. He went over the starting salary and told you that it was a union position, didn't he? I replied well he didn't tell me that it was a union position, but I said that's fine my last job was a union position as well. And he also told you the starting salary is $14.80 an hour., correct? So I replied no, he did not tell me the starting salary was $14.80 an hour. I then went on to say he asked me what my salary expectations were and I told him that I would like to make what I was making when I left the VA if possible, which was $19.50 an hour. She said she thought that that was a very high salary for only 1 years of experience and I was probably being paid more because it was a temporary position that didn't include benefit. Which was a wrong assumption on her part. I told her no that was incorrect that even though it was a temporary job it did include benefits after 60 days and that I had 11 years experience, not 1 years of experience.. I then asked her how much the union dues were a month and her reply was I don't know because I'm not Union. I said no I would need to know those answers so I can make an informed decision if the position is offered to me. She said she would get the answers to those questions and send me an email. That was 3 days ago and I have yet to receive an email from her
