I worked at AOA full-time
Osteopathic physicians are the best physicians in the world, both in terms of friendliness as volunteer leaders and clinical skills as physicians. Helping osteopathic physicians so that they can focus on caring for patients is a great honor.
When I started at the AOA, it was a revolving door in terms of staff. That slowed for a number of years as the AOA's pay and benefits became more competitive. From what I have heard after leaving the AOA, the revolving door is back.
I applied online. I interviewed at AOA (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.
Initially, the process started out great. I received a call (basically a phone screening) in which we discussed my credentials and my background. shortly after that, I was invited to have an in-person interview with the hiring manager. I must say, that was one of the most relaxed interviews I've ever had. The interview was more conversational rather that the awkward Q&A. Then after that interview, I was invited to have a group interview with some of the team. The team basically sat around asking me questions about my background and gave me insight on their roles within the team. The interview went fine...I guess. After that interview, the hiring manager told me that I would hear something back something next week. Well, lets just say "sometime next week" came & left. I never heard back from the company. I think that is just rude, unprofessional, and makes the company look TERRIBLE. Especially when you have candidates taking time out of their schedule to come to DOWNTOWN Chicago & PAY for parking for an interview. The least you could do was follow up with your candidates AOA. I should have just walked away after I read the company reviews! Never Again smh.
