    Creative Arts Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Content Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn directly by the hiring manager. We had a conversation over the phone and I decided to apply online. I then had a formal phone screening a week later by the same hiring manager. I was invited to come to Pittsburgh for an all day interview.
    After a long morning of interviews (with roughly 7 individuals), I had to perform two writing assignments onsite. I was there from approximately 9:15 - 5:15. As part of the process, I also had to do an additional writing assignment at home. I had to return the assignment the same day it was assigned.
    I basically used a vacation day to drive 5 hours each way for this interview, ate lunch by myself in the cafeteria, and did a bunch of mind numbing writing for a job I wasn't even offered. Total waste of time and energy. After all the time and effort I put into this interview process, the icing on the cake is that the hiring manager, who I had spoken to multiple times at length throughout this process, couldn't even reach out to personally let me know that I wasn't being selected for the position. Instead I get a note from a recruiter, with whom I have had no prior contact with, to inform me of this outcome (and this is only after I sent a follow-up note to the hiring manager asking if a decision had been made). Totally unprofessional if you ask me.

    Nurse Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process. It took about a month between interviewing and negotiating salary to close the deal. Because it's a big Corporation there are many stages and a lot of people involved in the interview process. Don't expect an offer after the first interview. There are also background checks which take time and salary negotiations which go back and forth.
