    Nurse Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Social Worker Bsw Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at UPMC.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone. All the questions were behavioral / situational questions. Such as , tell me about a time you went above and beyond. Tell me about a time you handled a difficult situation. I then received a phone call from the hospital HR department scheduling a face-to-face interview. The face to face interview was more of a conversation. Explained about the position and gave me and opportunity to ask questions. Only maybe two behavioral questions.

    Interview

    I applied online. The next week I received a call to set up a phone interview, which we had set for 2 days later. The phone interview day came around and I received no call, so that night I called the interviewee and left a message that I never received my phone interview. The next morning she called and apologized up and down for missing it, she had gotten sick. It happens. So we scheduled it for the next day. Did the phone interview and then had to do an assessment test as the next part of the process. Did that 2 days after the phone interview. Then another 2 days passed and I received a call for a face to face interview, that was set for about a week later. The face to face interview went really well, I was interviewed by 4 different people, one at a time. There was only one other person who had an interview at roughly the same time as me but she was actually late. She was interviewed first and it lasted about a half hour. Mine lasted about an hour. I got the call the following Monday with the job offer. I'm currently in the process now of completing the background check and health assessment test.

    Research Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at UPMC in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email invitation for a phone interview 3 days later. Scheduled the next available appointment. Received an email confirmation including the name of the person, who would contact me. Two days later an additional email reminder was send to me before the interview. I looked forward to the opportunity but the call never happened. I was left waiting. No one ever called or emailed me to reschedule or to tell me that the position was filled. I called them several times but was send to leave a voice message every time. I also emailed them but neither my calls nor my emails were ever answered. It was a very frustrating experience, especially with the call center being unable to connect me and consistently sending me to an answering machine. Hopefully, I was just unlucky and other candidates have better experiences because regardless of how busy someone gets, I think it's just plain rude not to cancel a confirmed appointment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and did a recorded interview. I found this kind of odd talking to a computer and just recording myself and think I would've done better talking to a real person. There were seven questions, you have 30 seconds to read the question then about 1-2 minutes to record your answer. You have one chance for each answer and cannot re-record.
