    Physician Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Merritt Hawkins (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through LinkedIn. 5 days later received an initial phone call upon which I was invited for face-to-face interview. The recruiter wanted to see me in their office the same week (the week before Christmas holidays). Since I travel back and forward between Atlanta & Chicago a lot, I was in Chicago at that time, I asked if it would be possible to meet after new year, but stated that if he'd rather interview me the same week I would make all the necessary travel arrangements to be there whenever he say. He said it's not necessary and he will call me back after New Year. He did not contact me as he said, so I called him to make arrangements for the interview. He was very awkward, evidently was trying to get a rid of me. Very disappointing, as he could simply say that they are not interested at this moment. Instead he told me he won't be able to talk with me because he has a scheduled phone call in 8 minutes. 8 minutes was plenty of time to schedule the interview with me. He decided he will just tell me he has no available time to interview me. Seriously? In my opinion lack of professionalism in this case. I'm a recruiter myself with 10 years of experience and this is not how you build the relationships with potential, current or future, candidates. It's a pity, because I was very interested with this company and I was serious about interviewing with them.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Merritt Hawkins (Dallas, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    In-house recruiter contacted me through LinkedIn. There was an initial phone interview. Following the phone interview a few days later, I came in for an on-site interview with the in-house recruiter for an initial meeting. I returned within a week at my earliest convenience for an interview with the Senior Vice President of Recruiting for the company. It was an excellent visit where we discussed the position and potential for career. We shared conversation and questions. All of this to be followed by another visit to meet with the Divisional Vice Presidents of two regions I would be considered to join. This also was a smooth process with genuine conversation and questions about past history and future goals.

    Phone interview. Then onsite with VP. Pretty straight forward. They hype that they lead the Medical Recruiting for perm placement which is true. Wasnt a bad interview, and they are truthful about what the position will entail.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merritt Hawkins (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter for a position in their Physician recruiting office in Irvine, CA. The recruiter first made an error on the email and it included a line about how I would have to live in Dallas, TX. After we cleared up that misunderstanding, I moved forward in the process and spoke with the regional vp, the vp of sales and two recruiters. Everything was incredibly positive and they made me an offer, but I told them that I needed to think about it for a couple of days. When I called back earlier than originally intended to accept the offer, the recruiter told me that they had give the offer to somebody else, as they were on a very tight deadline.

    In the end, if a company is going to be that underhanded with an offer, I'm glad that I did not accept it.
