    Patient Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The recruiter on the phone was very nice and professional. He called me on Tuesday evening for an interview on Thursday, However I met with a hiring manager the day of the interview. The interview lasted about 5-10 minutes max. She was very disengaged and seemed uninterested in interviewing me at all. She claimed that she was having IT issues staring at her computer the entire time She asked a couple of questions about my previous roles and how do I handle stress and that's about it. She didn't ask me any further questions or asked if I had any questions for her. At that point I knew that this wasn't the place for me.

    Residency Program Coordinator, Surgery Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I've never been compelled to write a review on this site, but I feel strongly enough to do so in this case. I had such a negative interview experience with this company that I declined moving forward. I think what most companies (and their representatives) forget is that we, the potential employees, are also interviewing them and that if you make us feel unwelcome from the very beginning, we will not want to work for you no matter how qualified we are. Or how much we may need a job. I was personally attacked by my interviewer who was extremely negative the entire time from the get go and yet her HR department called me in for the interview!!! I've never experienced something this absurd and I've been on many interviews.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Director and Supervisor of my department along with another Director of another Department. It was pretty easy. Just walked in and said I had an interview and they sat me in the conference room. The process after your interview is pretty lengthy with HR. This is weeks of online process along with dates to get medically cleared. All worth it though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The woman I interviewed with was rude and condescending. She barely took her eyes off her computer to stand up and shake my hand after the interview. The interview was not a conversation, she ticked off questions on a sheet of paper, wrote my responses down, and was distracted by her computer screen while I was speaking. Did not provide any feedback on my responses, just would move to the next question. At the end of the interview, she directed my questions to the other person in the room and went on her computer. I withdrew from consideration for the position immediately after the interview. I wouldn't work with that woman for all the money in the world. On a positive note, I had a screening call with a very friendly Talent Acquisition Sourcing Strategist before the interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System in October 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was set for the following week. Recruiter called on time and asked basic questions. He seemed really tired cause I heard him yawn at least three times. At the end of the phone screen he said he would let me know in the following week if I had been chosen to move on. Sent a follow up email the week after the phone screen. Never heard from him again. It’s been 2 months.
