    Customer Implementation Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Standard (Portland, OR) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Was approached after previously being recruited for a position that did not work out. After a review with the recruiter, I had a telephone interview with the hiring manager and his right hand team member about technical skills. Was brought in the following week for a personality interview. Was then given a writing assignment and brought in a second time for a meeting with the 2nd VP and two of the team members.

    Interview Questions

    • For the personality section I was asked a lot of 'give me a time when.' The worst of which was about active listening.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I provided a number to the recruiter for what it would take fornme to leave my current role, this was the number I was offered. I did wind up negotiating for a signing bonus at 6.67% of my salary. I will have to pay back all of my bonus if I leave in 6 months or half my bonus if I leave within a year.

    Data Analyst III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Standard (Portland, OR) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A couple minutes into the phone interview (with in-house recruiter), it was obvious I wasn't the right candidate for the position. However, the recruiter knew of a similar position in a different department that would be a good fit. The recruiter said she would send my info to her colleague, and that turned into another interview a few days later. Overall a pretty positive experience, in spite of not being the right job for me.

    Nurse Case Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Standard (Portland, OR) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A lot of red tape and waste of time. The whole process took 6 weeks with a phone interview, an online test, and a 3 hour panel interview with a surprise written test at the end. And when I say "written", I mean actually writing pen on paper. They operate mostly on paper so you will have to turn back the clock and get used to hand-writing full pages of notes. They wanted me to review a 15 page chart and write a full page recommendation in a format that they didn't tell me they wanted it in until I was done. Oh, and it was timed. The only good part of the experience was not getting the job.

    Interview Questions

    • They had two separate panels interviewing me and they asked me the same questions. They wanted me to answer in a format that they did not give to me until I was done answering. It was similar to what nurses know as SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) but they had their own version of it that they didn't give to me until the end. It seemed very scripted and the interviewers seemed shackled to these stock questions that were redundant. When I asked the nurses what one piece of advice they would give to The Standard for their jobs to improve, they basically threw their manager under the bus and said she needed to listen to them.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Standard (Portland, OR) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process started by a very simple online application. Then was followed by phone interview with recruiter, followed by VP call to set up a 1:1 with VP. Final stage was panel interview with members of team and other departments. The phone interview with the recruiter was the most difficult. The VP portion was not difficult, the panel interview was simple.
