    I have been working at Aurora Health Care full-time (More than 8 years)


    I have been with Aurora nearly 10 years and have changes positions (promotions) 5 times, so clearly they try to retain employees. I have been fortunate to always have good managers who understand the roles of their employees and do not ask too much or too little. Aurora will challenge the employees to take an active role in their career development which I appreciate otherwise it is easy to fall into a routine without advancement. As a larger health system, Aurora has a vast library of resources for its employees (esp. pharmacists) that aid you in your daily work. Benefits packages are also great.


    As a larger organization, it can be easy to feel like a number and punch the clock so the employee must stay engaged (though Aurora has perks to try to offset this). If you get your BCPS, that is not enough for a pay increase, you will also need to do additional work (i.e. precept students or residents, etc).

    Lead Patient Care Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aurora Health Care (Milwaukee, WI) in June 2018.


    Used both LinkedIn and Glass door. Got ahold of a recruiter after I submitted a few resumes that fit my skill set. Got a hold of Chiara Caruthers, she sent me an offer to interview. Met on that date, the interview was difficult but honesty of skill sets was appreciated. Got a call back later that day to set up a job shadowing.

    Few weeks later got a call and was accepted.

    My favorite part of the interview process was how helpful my recruiter was with some of my more difficult questions.

    Also, I appreciated how interested they all were in my resume. I don't see this enough in an interview process.

    Interview Questions
