    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine (Chicago, IL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email 8 weeks later stating they were seeking other candidates. 4 weeks after that I received a phone call from HR to see if I was still interested.

    I came in for 2 separate interviews, one with HR and the other with 2 supply chain managers. After my interviews I was told I'd receive a case study to complete.

    The case study was never sent and I received a phone call from HR 3 weeks later informing me for a second time that they are pursuing other candidates.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR via email. Setup a phone screening with HR. Then was forwarded to the hiring manager where I did a phone interview with them. Followed by an in-person interview where I met with small groups of 3-4 people to be interviewed. I also had to do a teach back on a topic of my choice in their Epic System (which is unfair because they were on 2012, and I knew 2014 and higher) I also had to submit training/ tip sheets that I had created.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was conducted by Computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI). It was the first time I interviewed using this method. I found the process too impersonal and difficult to complete. Interviewing in and of itself is a stressful process, but when coupled with the need to focus on camera angles, lighting, and sound quality it becomes very task laden and therefore counter-productive to actually getting to meet and know the candidate up-close and personal.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process included a preliminary interview with a panel of four (though only three ended up being present), and a second interview with a panel of four (two returners) and the VP of the Foundation. Answering their questions took up about 40% of the first interview, and 60% of the second. During the first they heavily described what the job would be like, an assistant for the three managers of the Foundation (Estate Planning, Philanthropy). They stressed that it would be a high paced position and that they relied heavily on understanding of excel. They also stressed that it was a temp position, and though their company frequently hired temps on as full time employees, it was temp for an unknown amount of time.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    The interview started with a virtual interview then an in person. It was pretty straightforward and related to the specific unit I applied for. The virtual interview was pretty easy, it was just some questions about my background, and the in person interview was more about my specific desire to work on that unit.

    Great experience. Interview was pretty tough but as long as you remain calm and respond with clear cut questions you are fine and it goes smooth. Great hospital, great people, many opportunities to move up.

The new grad RN position was offered the following day.
