    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.


    I applied three months before getting called in for an interview. After the interview, I just kept getting delays and excuses from HR, particularly one employee who seemed unorganized and was late for both encounters which were the in-person and phone interviews. To me, it is a waste of time to extend dates and one's hope instead of letting the candidate know ASAP when a decision has already been made. I saw that as very unprofessional, sketchy, and disrespectful.

     I have a lot of respect for Cedars-Sinai but their HR department needs improvement.
