For the organization:
I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time (More than 5 years)
If you want to work in healthcare in southwestern Virginia, then Carilion is where you want to be. As a non-profit, they put a lot back into the community, and I feel that is a very important quality that makes me proud to work here. As far as employment goes, they have a great time-off policy, as well as other wonderful employee benefits, such as educational assistance. They also do a lot of promoting within, so once you get your foot in the door, there is a lot of opportunity to move up if you work hard enough and have the right attitude. They are also one of the few companies nowadays that still offer a pension plan, so that is a definite bonus!
I feel the pay in general could be a little bit more competitive with the rest of the state and nation, as well as wish that they offered retirement plan contribution matching opportunities.
Advice to Management
Make pay more competitive, provide retirement plan matching contributions, provide employees with greater discounts on fitness facilities (or free access - even better), and keep on keepin' on to make us all proud to work for such an admirable company!
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carilion Clinic.
Applied online. Met with the manager and educator. They asked me to explain my background and experience and then proceeded with interview questions. These questions were all based on scenarios and previous experiences I havie had and how I dealt with conflict etc. There were not any knowledge based questions. After I was hired I was required to complete some tests that proved my competency in areas, if I hadn't passed any of the sections I would've been assigned additional learning modules.
