    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intermountain Healthcare (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    It was a 3 part interview. First was a phone interview with 1 member of the corporate office. The second interview was a phone interview with the same corporate representative and several other managers from across the state. The 3rd interview was at the corporate office with 3 members of the corporate leadership team. I was required to prepare and present a 5-10 minute presentation and then a standard 3 panel interview.. Everyone was very professional and most of the questions were pretty standard for this level of a position. This seems like a very good company from the limited interactions I had.
