    Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Reading Hospital (Reading, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    After applying for the job in online, I received an email to take a Kenexa Excel and Access test. Later, the HR called and asked a couple of questions on career interests, skills, experience etc. The HR confirmed a technical phone interview with 2 people and the phone interview went very well. The manager who did the phone interview told that I may receive a face-to-face interview and I was invited for a face-to-face interview a week later. I had a bad face-to-face interview experience. My interview was scheduled at 10 am and no one was until 10.30 am. The HR then explained benefits of the organization for about 20 minutes and I was directed to a conference room where 3 people interviewed me. The interview did not last more than 35 minutes. 2 out of 3 interviewers are looking into mobiles during the interview. I would be happy if they would have ended the interview by asking only a question. Lack of time sense and lack of interview manners - a bad interview experience.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Reading Hospital (Reading, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    you have to complete a Kenexa test to prove your MS Excel and MS Access skills. I did pretty well on the test and I received a phone call from HR. The call with HR is simple with few questions on my interests, education, skills etc and she scheduled a technical phone interview a week later with a group of people. The technical phone interview went very well. People in the interview asked mostly about my previous technical experience, education etc. and I was called for an in-person interview 2 weeks later. I waited for 40 minutes in the lobby and then the HR came to explain the benefits of the company such as leave, sick time and insurance. Later, I was asked to go to a conference room where 3 people interviewed me. I had a very bad in-person experience. 2 out of the three were looking into the mobile during the interview. The interview lasted only for 30 minutes. I would be happy if I was informed that they have chosen some other candidate. No interview manners for the technical people and lack of skill set.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Reading, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Reading Hospital (West Reading, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The first step involved a phone screening/interview, where you're then invited to come in if you match their basic requirements.

    The in-person interview consisted of a 20-30 minute meet with an HR representative which goes over school, work history, basic history questions, etc. The HR rep then goes over schedule, salary, and benefits to give you a heads up should you be offered a position. This is followed by a 15 minute interview with the nurse manager(s) where they ask you behavioral and "tell us about a time when..." questions. Finally, you shadow a nurse for an hour or so, so that you can get a feel for the floor.

    Interview Questions

    Graduate Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Reading Hospital.

    Interview

    Chris was the nicest recruiter I have ever dealt with. He gave me great information about the position, salary, benefits, tuition assistance when I go back for my BSN, etc. He emailed me all the interview information (location, who I would be meeting with, agenda, map of the health system). He actually spoke to me like a real person. I have spoke to many recruiters that seem robotic. The nurse manager was great and gave me great information about the floor, teamwork, expectations. I like that I could spend some time on the floor after speaking to the nurse manager.

    Graduate nurse rate was given during interview process.

    Administrative Resident Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Reading Hospital (Reading, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. Had an initial phone interview and was then invited to an on-site interview. HR was kind enough to make hotel reservations and reimburse me for my travel expenses. The interview itself was long but relatively easy; mostly behavioral/experience-based questions. I met with several senior leaders and had great conversations with most of them. I left the interview thinking I did well. I was told to expect a response in a couple of weeks. I sent follow up emails after two weeks had passed by but never received a response. I only got to know I did not get a job when I heard that someone else was extended the offer. Advice to HR: Please inform final candidates of your decision. I know hiring can be an overwhelming experience and you are probably hiring for multiple positions simultaneously but a quick email informing a candidate of your decision is the bare minimum.
