    Admitting Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone call on Friday to schedule a phone interview. Scheduled the phone interview for Monday, but never received a phone call.
    Tried to get in contact with them and there's no way of doing so. The only number listed is an automatic service number that doesn't allow you to speak to anyone.
    I've never experienced anything so unprofessional in my life.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    This was a bogus process . I had multiple phone interviews and a webex interview with 2 different departments only to find they were using me, a highly qualified candidate to talk down another offer with a less qualified person. I wasted weeks on this job when I could have had multiple other interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. A couple of weeks later I received an email invitation for a virtual interview. I was able to complete the interview at my convenience which was nice. It was a little difficult to get the program to recognize my web cam & record my responses. It was 8 questions total some of them displayed on the screen & others pre-recorded. I did like the fact that I did not have to take time off my current position to travel to an interview, especially considering it is 3 weeks later. I assume I am not getting a call for a face-to-face.
