Healthcare Assistant

Why did my employer try to compare my personal life to my job obligations? Excuse me there’s no level of comparisons. At home I’m on my own schedule. I do as I please. On the job, I follow the rules, restrictions, and regulations under my job description. Teams are different dynamics. Many places talk a good game about teamwork from administrative to the floor, but I’ve seldomly seen this done. I’ve been places where the ADON wouldn’t work the floor if nurses were understaffed.

    Average Interview


    I was asked to meet with the CEO/Founder during the last round of interviews. I loved the company's mission and I had already gone through 3 other rounds so I was very excited to be invited to meet with him. My excitement immediately turned into confusion. Throughout the entire interview, Adrian proceeded to berate me about the last company I worked for and yell at me for even choosing to work there (it was another Healthcare company). He kept cutting me off and was disinterested in what I had to say. Then at the end of the interview, he just walked away without a proper transition/ending so I wasn't sure if the interview even ended. Adrian is disrespectful and rude. Be wary if you have an interview with him.
