    Mental Health Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was a waste of time. It was with 2 people. 1 of them was disinterested the entire time. They asked me brief and easy questions (Was I finished with my degree and licensed?) it was obvious they didn't actually look through my resume. I was only there for 10 minutes. 5 days later I got an email saying I didn't get the job.

    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online and recruiter got back to me in a few days and arranged for a technical screen phone interview about a week after that.

    Interviewer called me on time. Immediately dove into the most technical questions I've encountered in a long time (and I've been in the tech business for a while). On top of that I could barely understand the questions since he was calling from a cell phone on speaker and I could hear people in the background like he was doing from his cube! His reception must have been awful since the call kept cutting in and out. I asked him several times to repeat the questions and then please get off the speaker phone. How hard is it to put the phone up to your ear for crying out loud?!?!

    At the end of the interview he asked if I was available for a possible in person interview the following week. Never heard a word back...

    This is too bad because the job was a great match for my skills and SCH looks like a great place to work.

    Manager/Plant Operations Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Regional Director of Facilities and 3 of his direct reports. It was a very comfortable experience, great conversations and learned a lot about each. I was nervous as it was my first interview in over 12 years but they made me feel as ease after the first few minutes. After the interview which lasted about 45 minutes I spent another 40-45 minutes touring the hospital campus with the RD and had excellent conversation. Thought everything went well and he was speaking as if I was an excellent fit for their department but, after 4 weeks and not returned follow up voicemails to the RD I can only assume they went in another direction.
