    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview, where typical interview questions were asked. Then they scheduled me for an in person interview with the unit manager and a tour of the unit. After they offered me a position and I accepted. They then schedule you for a drug screen, and immunization check (or you provided imms records), orientation and any required training (CPR, IV, Phlebotomy) The whole process was pretty easy and well organized.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (Chelsea, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was casual, however, I felt that my job description was shadowed and I was lead to believe I would be in charge of more things than reality represented.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (Ann Arbor, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email about a month after I applied asking me to schedule a phone interview. After my phone interview that lasted about 15 minutes I was told to expect a call from the supervisor to call me and set up an in-person interview within the next week. I was called the following Monday (about 1 business day later) and he offered me the interview totally at my convenience. My interview lasted approximately 2-3 hours and consisted of a paper exam, a peer interview, a tour and a one-on-one interview with the supervisor of the department.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Difficult to coordinate with HR once the manager sought out an interview, HR is not quick or efficient in their hiring process. Did a short 5 minute phone interview and then an in-person interview followed by a tour of the unit and an opportunity to meet co-workers and ask questions.

    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and was contacted to schedule a phone interview within a few days of applying. The phone interview with their Communications Manager went well and after an hour and a half conversation, I was asked to come in for an interview.

    The in-person interview was a bit of a mess. I arrived a few minutes early, but the interviewers were about 15 minutes late. This wasn't a big deal, but what was very irritating was the lack of preparation from the interviewers.

    The first portion of the interview was a tag team with the Communications Manager I spoke to on the phone and the Marketing and Communications Director. Neither of them had even looked at my resume beforehand and did not have a very clear picture of what the position actually entailed or any specifics as to what the general marketing plan for the organization looked like.

    This first interview felt more of an educational session for the interviewers on what digital marketing is rather than my ability to do it for the organization. Marketing seems like it takes a backseat to the communications/PR side of things at this hospital system.

    After about about an hour and a half, a stream of 10 or so people came into the room for a panel style interview. As it turns out this was their entire marketing/communications department. After introductions they asked me some softball questions and were mostly trying to get a feel for me as a person rather than my professional skills or qualifications.

    Aside from feeling a bit like an animal at the zoo being watched by spectators, this wasn't so bad. The department was made up of mostly young professionals, all of whom were very nice.

    Where things took a bit of a turn was when one of the hospital's nuns, who is also one of their photographers, decided to hold and rub my hands . This isn't acceptable upon a first encounter with someone and even less acceptable at a job interview. I felt more like some sort of curiosity at this point rather than a potential candidate for a job. After about an hour of panel interviewing and a few questions on my knowledge of specific religious minutiae, the interview concluded. By this time I had decided this was not the place for me.

    Upon leaving I was told "we'll be in touch." As it turns out that was a lie. There was no follow up or further communication from them.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions asked did not seem relevant to the position. The questions were not particularly difficult, but that appeared to be a byproduct of the interviewers lack of understanding of the position and poor preparation.   Answer Question
