Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Harris Health System (Houston, TX).
Applied online September 2017. Took 6 weeks to hear from the recruiter, who did a brief phone screen and set me up to interview with the hiring manager, an executive.
That interview was quick, and a good experience. Three weeks later, I had an interview with several executives, which was also a positive experience. I felt I did well in both of these interviews and got positive feedback from several people.
I was told the same day by the hiring manager that I would know by the week of Thanksgiving, which was two weeks from then. Fast forward five weeks, I get rejected in a thirty second phone call.
It's a hard thing to write about because I don't want to seem "owed" the job. The other candidate may have been great, and that isn't an offense to me. I just don't appreciate the lack of communication or, even worse, the hiring manager being unwilling or unable to decide between TWO candidates in a reasonable amount of time. People are out here in a collapsed city economy (thanks to the oil collapse) trying to take care of families and wondering if they need to check in with the hiring manager when an agreed upon notification period is blown off by several weeks.
I was disappointed in the extremely poor communication habits and inefficient decision making in my interview process. Along the way, I began to question just how well I would fit in with a bureaucratic organization that can't make simple decisions in a reasonable time frame.
