    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Virginia Mason (Burien, WA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Career fair that was very unorganized. The interviewer was rude and showed entire disinterest while I was answering the interviewing questions. If you are looking to work for GROUP PETTY, this is your stop! I have never seen such unprofessional and unethical stunts until I interviewed with Virginia Mason... Good luck!

    We appreciate you providing feedback on the career fair you attended, however, Virginia Mason has not held a career fair in the Burien area as we do not have a location in that part of the city... More

    Patient Care Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Virginia Mason (Seattle, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward interview process. 1 phone interview then an in person one the following week. On the phone, I was asked simple background info of how I qualify for the position. We then moved onto a competency test on the phone just to see how will I could understand and follow directions. Pretty simple, but could definitely stump you if you are not a native English speaker. I advise you get out a laptop and take notes from the 5 sentences she will ask--then have her read one more time because she will ask specifics like "what gender is the patient I was talking about?" or "what kind of lab did I ask you to order?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Virginia Mason (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It only took a 30 min phone call from Human Resource about basic behavioral questions, and if interview goes well a second in person interview with the department supervisor is scheduled. Takes about 20-30 min, just research Virginia Mason interview questions and those were the questions I was exactly asked.

    I had one phone interview with a recruiter (I live out of state). Pretty standard interview, like 3 behavioral based questions. I did not get an offer, but they did a good job of keeping me up to date in the process.

    Submitted a resume and cover letter online and received an email from HR requesting to do a phone interview the next day. They asked a couple basic behavioral questions. After the interview I was told by the HR person that were going pass my resume on to the hiring manager who would make the decision about which candidates would get an in person interview. I received an email 3-4 days later that they were going to consider other candidates with more experience.
