    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Palomar Health (San Diego, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online a month prior to the interview. Within a month, they notified me for an interview. The interview was in a MMI format. There were three performance based questions and three behavioral questions. Prior to the interview their was a workshop which I think was very helpful since they had a mock interview.

    Marketing Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Palomar Health.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very enthusiastic and impressed by my experience and background during the phone interview and wanted to bring me in right away for a personal interview. When she met me in person, she became disinterested and dismissive. If you're a female of a certain age, applying for a role in marketing or provider relations for which you are exceptionally qualified, good luck getting hired. I have applied for these types of roles at Palomar a few times over recent years but have never received an offer. They are clearly looking for a "type". A friend of mine who is employed there confirmed my suspicion. She said it's an unspoken policy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Palomar Health (Escondido, CA) in April 2016.

    The interview process was fairly informal. The manager picked a time that worked for us both and I went to the office to interview. There were several structured questions and several follow-up questions. Overall the interview was laid back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Palomar Health (Escondido, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone only, few if any details volunteered, cold and impersonal. Just going through the motions, and even less detail of possibilities. Felt like they intended to hire within no matter what was said.
