    Patient Access Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    LONG! After getting the initial call that my resume was moving forward it took 2-3 weeks to hear back from them again, then after the day of the interview it took another 3-4 weeks to hear any feed back. I did not get offered the position. Then 2 weeks later after I applied for another patient rep i get a call that i had been chosen again, but they had to leave a voicemail. I returned the call, no response. I emailed the guy who called me to see about it, no response. It was almost like he realized i already interviewed for the same position in a different deptartment and didn't mean to call. So now i'm sitting here wondering if it's even worth applyin to anything else if i've interviewed at one spot on campus. and it all hurts my heart because St Jude is a place i've always wanted to work because of the amazing things they do for the children. I understand if i'm not qualified but for these positions i know i am. I was also told i have "too much energy" for the position, which is odd.
