    PATIENT RELATIONS Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do/how would you prioritize if there was a client at the front window with a crisis, the phone was ringing, and there were emails being pinged to you in a constant stream? How does this scenario make you feel?   2 Answers

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Common practice interview... HR is slow, however once you get past HR you round with interview panel rapidly. Overall, you end up answering common industry questions such as "tell me about a time where you failed." You round with manager, interview with service line director and then progress to panel interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Not difficult, "Tell me about a time where you failed yourself and a client?" Seemed like a get you question   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not very detailed... They have a cap, and typically like to start you just shy of mid-range.

    Research Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    The interview was low stress and not overly formal. It felt like a natural give-and-take conversation and did not include any difficult or "got-cha" questions. The interviewer, who had a calm demeanor, asked about my background and interests and then described the job duties and schedule. The location (hospital common space) and format of the interview put me at ease and allowed me to field the questions in a relaxed manner.

    Windows Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Providence Health & Services (Portland, OR) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Simple and single interview with small group 2-4 people. There was a silly hand written test you have to do that ask some really 101 type tech questions. They seemed to be more looking at personality fit rather technical skills. It was relaxed and took about 45 mins. I had a follow up phone call with the director that again was about learning more about my personality then technical. Over all it should be an easy interview for anyone with some skills.
