    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at UPMC.

    Interview

    Entire process took over a year actually which is pretty comical. Was about to get an offer when I was told finding was on hold. They called back 5 months later with offer. I only took it for educational benefits, but ultimately I found the salary to be too low and found employment elsewhere.

    Temporary Onboarding Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was completely overqualified for the position. I was excited about working for UPMC, but was told my eagerness was an issue. They were looking for someone more humble. I was completely taken off guard by this comment. I was just excited about the job, but apparently that is a bad thing when you are interviewing at UPMC. Also, they completely misunderstood my situation, and accused me of being disengaged because I didn't ask enough questions in my second interview, but the structure of the second interview (a job shadow) was kind of unusual and threw me off guard. The computer system they showed me and the process was all very straightforward and I didn't feel the need to ask a lot of questions because it's not a hard concept to grasp. She also accused me of rushing the hiring process because I mentioned that I did not have to give a 2 weeks notice from my current job. She didn't bother to ask me why and address her concerns. I just do not recommend working with this department. They dismissed my application for completely trivial and stupid reasons. I had a perfectly fine explanation for every issue she perceived with my candidacy, and I was basically LIED to in my interview because I asked my interviewer in both interviews if there was anything about my application or interview that she had concerns about so that I could address them and she told me that she had no concerns. SO DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

    Creative Arts Therapist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I didn't get an interview. The application didn't get to that level. It was rejected before even being considered. Furthermore, they rejectected the application with less than one hour review time, which makes me think that they didn't even consider my qualifications at all. I have experience voulunteering in music therapy, and am a professional musician. Those are skills that matched some of the prerequisites of the job. I also have a B.A.

    Internship Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was not hired I just applied for an internship and I sent a video interview. The process took ages and ages to come to an end. They are an employer that takes you into consideration for ages and at the end comes with a rejection answer. This is not being correct with people. At least they should take the time to say sorry but we don't want you, in the same way, I took the time to fill pages and pages of their requirements. I will never apply for them again and hope all the people that had the same experience will not in the future.
