    Volunteer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sutter Health (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    I contacted the volunteer coordinator, who got back to me quickly. I filled out a simple application--biggest requirements are a reference and vaccines. The volunteer cycle (100) will start when there is an orientation, which I believe occurs only about 4 times a year. From the time I applied to the orientation, about three months passed. During this time, I received a phone interview.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Soquel, CA

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sutter Health (Soquel, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted shortly after submitting my resume, and I had phone screens with the hiring manager and recruiter. After the phone screens, I was contacted the next day and scheduled for an in person interview that took place the following week. I had to take the day off work, as the drive was 1 1/2 hours one way, and it was clear that I prepared for the interview and thoroughly researched the company and individuals that I was met with. I also sent a thank you note within three hours of my in person interview. Nobody has bothered to get back to me, which shows a complete lack of courtesy and a complete lack of respect for the time and effort that I put into the process.

    Interview

    It was a fairly easy process. It was quick and simple. Just how smoothly the interview and hiring process went, I knew it would be a great place to work. Everything from the application, the 1st and 2nd interview on through the background and drug screening took about a week's time.

    Vice President, Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alameda, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sutter Health (Alameda, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process was "messy" to say the least.

    The final stage of interviewing was with the CEO, physicians, and Director group (17 people total). The CEO asked me if I had children, the physicians broke out into laughter as soon as I left the room, and the Director group was cold and disengaged.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sutter Health.

    Interview

    I applied for a non-executive level position in their corporate department. I went through 4 rounds of interviews all in-person. I was reassured through the majority of the process that it was going well. During each round I was asked stock interview questions and given positive feedback. Yet, in the end it didn't result in an offer and they decided to proceed with an internal candidate.

    I understand no process is perfect, but shows a complete lack on respect and professionalism on two key fronts.

    First, that many rounds, especially in-person, were completely unnecessary. Regardless of the job, a hiring manager should have enough authority and decision making ability to hire the intended long before four rounds.

    Secondly, it is completely inappropriate to have internal and external candidates apply in the same pool. This should be obvious given the built in rapport, experience and internal knowledge.

    I am very disappointed in this organization for not being able to conduct a respectful interview process.
