Jihad, a 14-year Akron Children's employee, has since stepped into the role as an EMR Support Specialist where he and his team ensure quality patient care. For Jihad, #BlackHistoryMonth has always been a time to pay homage to his ancestors. “Black History month is a time to pay homage to my ancestors that have paved the way and sacrificed so much for us to have to opportunities that we have today. Unfortunately, Black History month is only 28 days and I would encourage all of us to recognize Black history throughout the entire year.” We're proud to support so many driven employees looking to make a change.

    1. Department Manager Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Easy Interview

      I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Akron Children's Hospital (Akron, OH)


      Applied online and received an email from HR stating they’d like to interview me. Told me to add my interview via her public calendar. I tried but she did not have her calendar set up. I emailed her back to let her know and she gave me a snobby response, “just tell me what works for you and I’ll schedule it”. She Scheduled a phone interview with me for 10 days out. Then day of interview She no showed on me. I emailed her and she rescheduled for another week out. During the phone interview she started the convo with “I’m short on time so I may interrupt you to move this along”. The entire call sounded as if she was driving as there was a lot of background noise. She wasn’t taking notes and wasn’t even paying attention. I honestly think the position was already filled but since she no showed, she didn’t want to get in trouble so this interview was pointless. She was very rude and the whole experience put a negative light on the hospital.
