Working at Guidant, you get to make a difference to the world’s leading companies. You'll also be well rewarded by way of salary and benefits. 

However, we understand that life’s about more than coming into work, doing your hours and getting paid at the end of the month.

As a progressive employer, we’re passionate about flexible working and we'll do everything we can to make sure you're happy and fulfilled inside and outside of work. 

That's why we’ve invested in pioneering initiatives such as Open Blend Method, which has replaced annual staff reviews.  This innovative technology platform acts as an enabler for open and honest conversations between managers and their teams, and places employee wellbeing at the centre of our business. Each Guidant employee now creates their own unique work/life blend which is made up of 8 key elements that reflect their life inside and outside of work. These individual blends form the basis of regular coaching-led discussions between managers and their team members. We’ve already seen some fantastic results since we introduced Open Blend, with increased levels of confidence, happiness and commitment to progress across our business.

When we first implemented Open Blend, some people were worried about having to reveal details of their private lives they might not want to discuss with their manager. However, Open Blend is about supporting you as an individual and you can therefore reveal as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. Now that Open Blend is fully embedded, our team have seen first-hand the difference it can make to individual lives and careers. Open Blend gives individuals a voice and a platform to request the support they specifically need to develop and progress.

    Client Operations Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Guidant Global (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Guidant Group
    Phone interview with Client Operations Coordinator Manager
    Face to Face interview with COC Manager, Payroll Manager, Administrative Assistant, Administrative Manager, and Client specialist

    WHAT REALLY BOTHERED ME IS THAT:
    They confirmed that my min pay rate is would be easily provided through the first two phone interviews. After the third and final in person interview, I received a follow up call, stating that they would like to offer me a job. However, it was a few thousands below the agreed on min pay rate. I tried to negotiate the offered salary in a nice professional way, and was told I would receive a phone call back to discuss it further (please note this was a very reasonable pay rate which was agreed on prior to the personal interview).

    An hour later I received an email stating and I quote " We are passing on your candidacy at this time. Thank you for your time today and best of luck in your job search."

    I tried to reach them through an email or phone ans they would not answer me.
