    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine (Winfield, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a virtual interview (you are asked questions on a the screen, you have 30 seconds to prepare your answer and then your answer is video recorded). After that about 2 weeks later I was set up with an in person interview with the hiring manager and the woman I would be replacing. They asked me several pretty generic interview questions and then I was shown around and explained duties the job would entail. After my interview I sent a thank you letter to the hiring manager and then I never heard from them again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine in November 2016.

    Interview

    Different interview digital interview. I really didn't like the digital interview because I couldn't ask any questions if I misunderstood a question. They only ask you 10 questions. Only thing I don't like about the digital interview is that they determine whether they want to give u a in house interview based off the digital video. I dislike it because everyone is not a camera person so if you don't do well on the video version it can cause you to blow your chances of getting a real interview with northwestern medicine.
