    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Mississippi Medical Center (Jackson, MS) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Surprisingly short and simple; the interview itself took about 20 minutes. I met with a recruiter in HR and was walked around the hospital and shown to the department. I was interviewed by the two shift supervisors and the unit educator, who made the interview as much of conversation as they could, as opposed to just rapid firing questions at me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Mississippi Medical Center (Jackson, MS) in January 2014.

    Interview

    the interview was quick and to the point. I was not nervous about the interview because I already knew someone who was employed on the floor I wanted to work on. They had already spoken with the nurse manager about me, so I knew what to expect. The nurse manager was friendly and very professional.

    Administrative Assistant II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jackson, MS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Mississippi Medical Center (Jackson, MS) in August 2011.

    Interview

    After applying online for an Administrative Assistant position, I received a response stating that I met the minimum education/experience requirements. I had to take an employment (typing) test to be considered for the job. But the test was extremely outdated and unfair. The equipment was beyond outdated, and the test itself wasn't timed properly. It's virtually impossible for anyone to pass their employment test. I think the entire process needs to be re-evaluated. I guess that's why even internals didn't even qualify for the job because a test that should be so simple is made so difficult by outdated equipment and computer programs.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions because it's very difficult to actually get an interview for the Administrative/Office positions.   Answer Question
