    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Valley Health System (New Jersey).

    Interview

    Hire quality, competent people and not just bodies to accommodate or fill shifts. Be consistent with progressive discipline for problematic and toxic employees (especially the ones who have gotten too comfortable and have been employed there for a while) and ensure that your infrastructure is current and up-to-date. Micro management can kill the overall workplace environment and morale. Not enough supervision in other areas of the department. Reevaluate or oust your incompetent supervisors and managers.

    Housekeeper Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Valley Health System (New Jersey) (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and a day later I was sent an email to take a skills assessment test. A day later, I received a call from a recruiter for an interview and scheduled it the following week. There were several people interviewing at the same time as me, they desperately needed 7 spots filled probably because of their high turnover rates. I applied for a full-time position ONLY and after they offered me the position they told me I would be working per diem(on-call). HIGHLY unprofessional and a complete waste of my time. They only had 2 full-time positions and the rest was all per diem, which they failed to mention. When I chatted with another interviewee he also applied for full-time but was given per diem. Ridiculous. No wonder they have a high turnover rate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Valley Health System (New Jersey).

    Interview

    Interviews can go for 2 or 3 rounds of in-person meetings plus an initial phone interview. Peer and manager interviews are common but their goal is to make sure you feel the right connection with the right group. I would say these are average to difficult but definitely worth the time and enough to get a feel of all the groups and department structure.
