    Interview

    Took place in spring 2015
    Stated process with a corporate flak who gave me very high quality promotional materials. Time spent: 40 m
    Then met with potential supervisor. Time spent:10 m
    Last meeting: potential co-worker who would also be my only "teammate"
    Time spent: 30m in hell. She was the rare social worker with a nasty demeaning belittling attitude. In interview, it came up that I started as a social worker. When I returned to school for my doctoral degree not one of the social workers or I heard of the. LCSW credential. She very loudly insisted that "it was around you have no idea what you are talking about"
     Vista offeted $60 G w benefits for psychologist position which was great. Except it was not just for doing psychology. It included 3 other job titles and specs:
    Medical Biller: expected to do billing dept's work on their demand-benefits checking/patient accounts. I am not trained as a medical biller
    QA: scheduling telephone treatment reviews w/ins. I have no BS in QA. The QAs I know are usually very highly qualified RNs

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vista Health System (Waukegan, IL).

    Interview

    Applied online, received a phone call from HR within a week. Went in for interview 1 week later. First met with HR Director in a very brief interview. Was handed a benefit overview booklet at the end of the interview and was brought to meet with the Director of the department which was another very brief interview. Department manager was answering phone calls and text messages during interview. Very little time to ask questions. The interview process seemed very rushed and unorganized. Was offered a position on the spot and told to look for a formal offer via email. 1 week later received formal offer from HR. After asking questions regarding pay and scheduling, 1 day later I received another email revoking the offer stating they were unable to meet by "demands" and that I "wouldn't be satisfied in the department." Very unprofessional overall.

    Interview Questions

    • None. By both interviewees I was asked what I do at my current position and why I wanted to work in this specific department   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Once offer was received I asked for a slight raise in pay, and what were the required weekends/holidays. 1 day later offer was revoked and was told that they were unable to meet my "demands"

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vista Health System (Waukegan, IL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Met with director of psychiatry dept. and the adult outpatient program coordinator (an LCPC). I was asked standard questions about my previous experience in counseling/psychology, my future/career interests, some personal belief (counseling-related) questions, and some situational questions. Once the interviewers were finished with their questions, I was given a detailed description of the typical treatment day, clinical populations treated, resources available to employees, and employee expectations. Both interviewers were very friendly. Interview lasted about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

    Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Vista Health System (Waukegan, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was simple. I applied online and was contacted by HR about 3 weeks later. I went for an initial interview with the HR rep, and then spoke with the Department Director immediately after. The interview questions were simple and basic, like "what are your strengths" and "why do you want this job" etc etc. I was then called back about two weeks later to come back to interview with another Director, which was also a quick and easy interview. It took a while to hear back from them, it was about another month before HR finally called me back and made me an offer. I accepted the offer and started two weeks later.

    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vista Health System (Waukegan, IL) in August 2010.

    Interview

    This organization does not know how to interview. I was not asked one valid interview question. I was told many statements, but never asked any questions. The "peer interview," was a joke. They were more interested in eating lunch. I asked all of the question. The CNO and CEO were both over a half hour late and then just gave me statements and again asked me no questions. The interview was drug oput over three weeks. I guess this should have been a tip off to what a terrible place this is to work.

    Negotiation

    There was some room for negotiation. They do offer a competitive salary. The benefits are not great.
