    I have been working at Fairview Health Services part-time (More than 5 years)


    Small town atmosphere- everybody knows everybody, including pts and staff. It feels like an extended family, and everybody takes care of each other. As far as management goes, this is the first company that I have worked for that not only wants to hear your ideas, but upper management actually responds to each idea submitted personally, whether they agree with your suggestion or not, and why. People here are held accountable for their role in providing an exceptional pt experience, some can't handle that expectation.


    Our employee engagement, and pt satisfaction scores are better than all other FV sites but management literally pounds areas for improvement down our throats. Over and Over. Day. After. Day.....and it is very draining.

    Advice to Management

    Not everything can be fixed by open forums with the whole group. One on one counseling with the few that constantly complain or refuse to participate would be more effective and less damaging to dept morale.

    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Fairview Health Services (Saint Paul, MN) in December 2017.


    I recently interviewed via phone for a contract position. The hiring manager set up an interview bridge. When we both joined the call and finished introductions, there was an awkward 30 second silence until I (the interviewee) had to ask the interviewer, "where do you want to start" she was not prepared

    Interview Questions

    • The hiring manager basically described the role and what my responsibilities consist of but the only relevant interview question was, "tell me about your various Positions". After that she asked if I had any questions and I posed the ones I did have. After every answer, she repeatedly said, "what is your next question" incessantly to the point it seemed she was not paying attention and droned on and on.   1 Answer
