    Unit Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UT Southwestern Medical Center in May 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call the following day from a recruiter. She asked me very basic questions: Tell me about yourself, what are your strengths, where do you see yourself in 5 years. She was friendly and set up an interview with the unit manager few days after. Prior to speaking with the manager, I was requested to provide 5 references. The interview with the manager went well, he was friendly too, asked me pretty much the same questions. He asked me when I could start and said they couldn’t wait to meet me in person (Skype interview due to the pandemic). When I asked the next step in the process, he told me to reach out to the recruiter, who would send me paperwork for me to complete. I emailed her, twice, never got a response. Fortunately, I was in the process with another hospital and got an offer somewhere else. I just find it very unprofessional to be left without answer, even if it seems to be common in the hiring process world. Employers tend to forget that we, candidates, have a lot of opportunities, there is lots of competition on the market for us as well, and they are not the only ones. Don’t make candidates believe they got a position if you are just going to ghost them. Especially during a pandemic, when lots of people are struggling, and having a job is their biggest hope to keep providing for their families.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UT Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas, TX) in January 2020.

    Interview

    It was standard process. The recruiter reached out to me three days after I had applied to setup a phone call. I had an initial phone call with the recruiter who asked me if I had already received a call from the department that I applied too. I received an email from the hiring department a day later asking to setup an onsite. The onsite was with 16 individuals over two days. Questions were standard questions mostly probing into me as an individual, leader, etc. One of the interviewers told me that their culture was to promote internally and that raised a red flag as to why I was interviewing with 16 individuals. The hiring manager had mentioned that they were only interviewing a small number of candidates. Except for three interviewers, none of them appeared friendly and wanted to be there. The next week, I just dropped a note to the recruiter inquiring and was told that the position was recently filled. Given the amount of timing between the job posting, my interview, and hiring, I was just interviewed to meet the EEO requirements.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UT Southwestern Medical Center in January 2020.

    Interview

    Interviewed with several people over about 3 interviews. Interviews were pretty casual and the y didn't ask anything too difficult. The process is very long and disappointing honestly. Seems like they don't value quality candidates yet rather offer lower salary to those who don't work as hard.
