Nice people. Excited for employment.

    HR Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a phone interview and they never called. I waited two weeks for this interview and arranged my schedule around it. I could have emailed afterward to follow-up and see if there was a problem, but I didn't because it was very unprofessional of them to not at least email me beforehand if they had made a change to their interview list or schedule.

    Information Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It's a large and somewhat fractionated company that after being recently compromised has decided to start staffing the IT department more appropriately. They rely on outsourced IT recruitment for applicants and while the process can take time, approximately 1-2 month, they do try to get back to you with some type of response. The onus is on the Applicant to check as to where in the process the decision is, so that can make things a bit stressful if you are relying on a quick answer to plan your career move. They prefer local versus out-of the area applicant. The IT team (i.e.: the working class) is very congenial and friendly, accepting of variety any ideas and love to interact with the new Applicants. The VIP and Management are more isolated, focus on memorization of knowledge and a grasp on a variety of subject matter as opposed to personality, work ethic and the obvious - intelligence. This is an indication that management is not in touch with the real world nor with their employees and hence I am willing to bet that decisions reflect those ideas. The general staff is very accommodating and truly respectful of the process and make every effort to accommodate all the needs during the interview process.
