transcriptionist interview questions shared by candidates
Do you have trouble getting along with people? (Pathologist asked me that back in 2001) Was he after you? (in reference to a man from another place I had worked) We talked about everything but the position I had applied for...my strangest interview, ever
I did not know what to make of the interview process...especially the last one over the past few months. Anything but an interview. I felt like I was talking to a psychic...or a friend over a coffee. Very inappropriate and strange. And the H.R. rep was uppity with me and put down what I do for a living (that happened once before, even worse. In that situation the young woman said, "I would rather be in Hell itself than do what you do for a living"). Also made to feel like I had an 'ulterior motive' just for being there...like I was under glass.
My girlfriend also interviewed for a transcription position and heard the same 'put-down' about the profession. Unreal, huh? She was in tears when she came home, and I was livid. I considered calling out the CEO on the interviewing practices at this 'monkey farm'. Nothing like this would ever happen at UMass Memorial in Worcester.
The fact that the female supervisor isolated you like she did...and then gave you such a strange look. You poor person. I would DEFINITELY contact the CEO about your humiliation.
One thing that I was asked that was a turn off a few days later. The person already had asked how many hours I could work and could I meet the expectation which I could because I do other contract work. So I could do at least 20 up to 40 hours. So it's really none of their business rather or not you have another job. Keep in mind this is a contract job. You are not an employee. So as along as you are meeting or can meet their expectations, the rest is the interviewer/company trying to categorize you in a way they shouldn't. They don't offer benefits and you are not an employee.
