I have been working at College of American Pathologists full-time (Less than a year)
As a new team member, I'm already making a significant impact and advancing the specialty of pathology. I touch many segments of the organization and I know the work I'm doing is helping to improve people's health. Many of the employees I've met are enthusiastic and passionate about the CAP and the work we do. They're extremely smart and always willing to share their knowledge cross-functionally.
As the CAP adapts to meet external demands and pressures, it may not feel like the family-oriented culture some remember. Even as we grow and navigate these changes, the culture is still warm, collaborative and collegial.
Advice to Management
Continue to engage employees and reinforce how our roles contribute to the strategic objectives of the organization.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at College of American Pathologists (Northfield, IL) in August 2015.
I first learned about the opportunity through a recruiter that works with CAP. I was connected with the hiring manager for a phone interview. The phone interview went well and I was asked to an in-person interview at their Northfield headquarters. I interviewed with three people: The HR director, the person whose role the new candidate would fill so that she would be able to move into a different area, and finally the hiring manager. The candidate before me (who ended up getting the job) was held over about 15 minutes into my interview slot. Obviously the hiring manager was impressed with this person. Overall I thought our conversation went well; I think the conversation with the previous candidate just went better and/or the skill set may have been a slightly better fit for them.
