    Payer Clearance Specialist Interview

    Average Interview


    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Children's National Health System.


    I initially applied for the Payer Clearence Specialist position. I was called by the hiring manager and completed a 20 minute interview/screening. I was invited into the office to complete a face to face. Along with the interview, three assesments had to be completed. The interview went fairly well and I was told that I would hear back from someone in few weeks. I received a call three weeks later from another manager located in at the main hospital for completely different position. Apparently, my resume was forwarded to the DC location for review. I was invited to interview for the Patient Access Coordinator role because the previous manager thought that would be a better fit. I drove to DC ( about 50 minutes) and met with two managers in the Patient Access Dept. These women were very nice and informed me of all the perks of the position and basically told me I would be great for the job. The next day, I was asked to take three more assessments and that after the assessments were completed mangement would find "the best fit" position for me. Received an email ten days later requesting that I come back to the Silver Spring office for another face to face. I went back to the office and was asked to take another assessment! Total of seven assessments in 29 days! I then had a sit down with another manager who was not as nice and didnt have the time to talk with me. Not sure what happened but the entire process was a complete waste of time. Didnt get an offer or so much as a rejection email.
