    Care Management Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salem, OR
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salem Hospital (Salem, OR) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and had an interview a little over one week later. The interview was conducted by about six people associated with the Care Management program. The interviewers were very friendly and made the stress of such a large panel of interviewers less intense. It was difficult for me to tell if they were friendly because they thought I was a good applicant, or were being patronizing.

    IT Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salem, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salem Hospital (Salem, OR).

    Interview

    Initially received email invitation to interview and it took a couple of weeks to go through phone screens and schedule an onsite interview. When I got onsite and started the interview it turned out to be very different from how the job was initially described. The staff questions and job expectations were different from the description by the hiring manager during phone screens. Classic bait and switch interview process.There seems to be a disconnect between management and staff where management is out of touch with day to day activities.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question from the staff was, "Were you given a description of this job?" I repeated the description as it was described to me and they looked confused and acted like it was my shortcoming. That was the end of the interview. From my albeit limited exposure to the organization it seems like a highly politicized environment where popularity counts more than ability. Even if it went well and I were offered a job I would turn it down because I value skills over politics. As a 20 year IT veteran I can spot dysfunction when I see it.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salem Hospital (Salem, OR).

    Interview

    I think interview questions are focused on attitude/behavior and skill. Management wants to see how well you would work as a team member, how you would react to different situations and if you are self motivated. There is also a big emphasis on patient satisfaction.

    Negotiation

    I didn't feel like there was any negotiation. It was basically, "Here's what we pay for this job. If you agree, sign here."

    Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Salem Hospital (Salem, OR) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The whole hiring process takes a very long time for any position.
    I first had a half hour conference phone interview with 3 people. They were not prepared. In fact, as I was on the phone, they told me they were looking up the questions they were to use.
    After a couple of weeks, I was notified that I was selected for a second interview.
    I interviewed first with the management team and later that day I interviewed with supervisors (6 of them). It was not very organized.
    I was not too impressed with the how friendly some people were. I would walk by staff and no one tried to say or even smile.
