    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ochsner Health System.

    Interview

    Applied online. HR contacted me via e-mail and asked that I select a time to talk about the position. I did so based on their availability within that system. HR said that was not a good time and asked me to pick another within a time frame. I did, but the hour I picked was not a good one. I went with the next suggested time they had available. A few days after, HR called - extremely short interview. IMO, interviews are a two-sided platform in which both parties are investing in asking /answering one another's queries to determine if there is a fit. Details on this position were vague despite my probing. Very little was asked of me other than experience, salary requirements (unclear if this was a screening call or interview at this point) and when I would be able to start if selected. I asked several questions and had many more, but HR rep was economical in candor and answers. I sensed this was a formality and I was not really being considered. Hard to tell. The phone call lasted about 5 minutes for HR, I pushed it for a few more as I wanted to know about this position. It can be defeating to prepare for an interview and excited - and to be met with extreme brevity & little else. HR is the front door and integral reflection of the company for whom the work - and it helps when they are engaging. Difficult to know if this is a case of meeting EOE formality standards - or merely their standard method of engagement with candidates. Big prep for my limited time allotment.

In person interview was about 1.5 hours long that consisted of individual interviews, tour, and panel interviews. Still waiting to hear back.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ochsner Health System (New Orleans, LA).

    Interview

    This was a well organized and intensive interview with multiple stakeholders. I found the entire process to be first-class and the hospital is beyond impressive. I would recommend this system for anyone seeking employment as a provider in the New Orleans area. After a month of not hearing any feedback from the recruiter or other professionals involved with my interview, I assumed another candidate was selected and I withdrew so that I could pursue other options.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ochsner Health System (Baton Rouge, LA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. Got an call from the office manager to schedule an interview. It lasted about an hour, all behavior based questions. The interview had 5 pages of questions and we went through each one. But he was nice and really interested in hearing my stories. Then said he wanted to invite me back for a second interview. Second interview was with the director of medical specialties, this one was short. Similar questions but more laid back. Talked about resume a lot. Then met with the medical director for about 15 minutes. We just talked about my resume, did not ask me any real interview questions.
