    Physical Therapist Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First was a 30 min phone call then I had a face to face interview with two PTs that lasted about an hour and a half.

    I first filled out the online application. Then I was asked to complete an online interview consisting of questions that I had to answer into my laptop camera with a predetermined time limit. Then I had a 30 min phone interview with a recruiter and once I got past that I had a panel interview with two PTs. Overall the process was pretty long but I felt my interviews went well and I thought I connected with the PTs I interviewed with.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They sent me a link for a video interview and it was uncomfortable. I did not have a webcam at home so had to do this interview in a public space. Also I feel that this process allows Providence to discriminate candidates without them ever knowing

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interactive, friendly, professional interview. Online application process is relatively easy. Followed up with either webcam recorded interview or phone interview. Webcam option is terrible and half of the questions are not applicable to new grads, which made answering those questions very awkward. Phone interview went well and scheduled for in person interview. Was a final candidate but hospital ultimately chose another candidate with more direct experience.

    Scheduling Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Digital. Convenient. Brief. Questions do not discriminate between potential employees and current employees. General questions about organization overall and short essays about your experience/skills. Questions were very general...more about organization than candidate per se. Not much of an opportunity to display your skills or what makes you stand out as a candidate. It would be nice if there were more if/then and how questions. So, the hiring manager could get a better sense of each candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Providence Health & Services is a Catholic group of hospitals and clinics, as such we routinely begin meetings with a prayer or reflection and have crosses throughout our hospitals. How do you feel about working in a faith based environment?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Note: it has been almost two months since applying. I have had the first interview. There's supposed to be a second interview. I called two times, and emailed once over the period of four weeks before I even was replied to and updated on the status. I'm still being considered and waiting...

    The interview took place at Providence St Vincent's and the process is ok. I applied online, they called two days later to schedule the first interview after a phone screening, and two days later I was interviewed (that's six days after applying). Good sign! They came out to get me late (~15 minutes late). The lady was unsure if another person would be joining us; another person did join. The two ladies took turns asking standard questions, and did not deviate from the questions too much. The second interview is supposed to take place with the entire staff.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager. It was very different than all my previous interviews. Interviewer seemed on the defense when I asked questions. Not sure if we just didn't connect or if they had already made some assumption about me. They made it clear job was NOT in IT and they had a lot of work.
