    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swedish.

    Interview

    The hiring process starts with a phone interview with a recruiter. Once this is complete, an interview is scheduled with the hiring manager and possibly two team members. In most situations this is the end of the process and the manager of the department will make a selection. HR will then call and make a job offer.

    During the process, I had a second interview and was interrogated by the a senior leadership person. This should have been a huge red flag. The red flag was ignored. The department manager offered the job over the phone. The rate of pay was significantly less that what a contract person was making for the same position. The manager was embarrassed. The manager contacted HR to obtain a pay range to offer. It was a little better that what the contract pay was.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult was to keep my composure while being interrogated by a senior leader. It was awful and very unexpected. I had never experience anything like this before. She was rude, demeaning, and very unprofessional.   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    It was a mistake to accept the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Swedish (Seattle, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Manger was about 10 to 15 minutes late. Interview was ok. Standard questions where asked and answered. Manger was unclear, rude and started show signs of being verbal abusive. I brushed off the general rudeness of manager as she was seemed overwhelmed. Over all the interview was unremarkable. I didn't expect a call back. But was hired and fired after 5 months due to not being a good fit. Verbal abusive manager added insult to injury by not paying me for all time worked on last paycheck. HR sided with horrible manager.

    Patient Care Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Swedish (Seattle, WA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    As someone else described in another review, it was disclosed to me during the interview that they hire temps from the staffing agency NuWest for this position and that they had pretty much already decided whom to hire for the job. I didn't know this and found their hiring practice a bit unethical in that they lead you to believe that they are truly considering you as a candidate while their full intention is of only using a staffing agency. The interviewer was nice and polite, but he was assigned to interview me at the last minute (as in when I arrived for the interview), so in all fairness, he was probably unprepared.

    This was supposed to be a peer interview w the hiring manager and members of the team, but the original manager did not show for the interview. Shame because Swedish seems a great place to work for.
