    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UPMC in July 2011.

    The hiring process was about three months. I submitted my application in April, got a call back in June for a phone interview, and eventually interviewed right after the 4th of July. I started working there in August. There were three interviews, but thankfully they were all in the same day, and they made their decision within 2 weeks of the interviews.

    Negotiation

    UPMC really does not budge on salary negotiations. I thought it was about 7-10k lower than I thought it would be, but ended up negotiating for an additional $1000 from the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I went into the room, the woman who was interviewing me was scattered and didn't have my resume. I printed it out off of her computer. The room was a mess, but she didn't seem to mind. It was a cramped room and i sat in a chair next to her desk where she was looking at email as she interviewed me. She was very closed off until I tried to ask about her own life and then she opened up a bit.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked very generic questions like "name a time when you had to deal with a difficult person" or "what would you do if you were running late for work" or "tell me a time when you had to rely on teamwork to get something done."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    I applied for the job Monday July 10, did my phone interview Thursday July 13th. I was asked at the end of the phone interview to come in for a face-to-face interview. The phone interviews questions were just about my previous experience & availability. My face to face interview was scheduled for Wednesday July 19th. I interviewed with the department manager. She asked me a couple standard interview questions, tell me about a time when this happened. The following day, i received my offer email & someone from recruiting with an offer. He said that within a few days I'd be getting another email on how to access my onboarding portal, it took a little longer than normal to receive though. Once I did that, I scheduled my Pre employment screening, did a background check, drug test & I have to get cpr certified. My official start date will be Monday August 14th.
