I worked at NorthShore Health Centers (More than 5 years)
Great environment to work in. I enjoyed working with people of all positions there.
I never had a bad experience working here.
I applied online. I interviewed at NorthShore Health Centers.
Interviewed at the Portage facility and the interview lasted about 30 minutes.
The facility was very busy and crowded, but all of the employees I spoke with were very helpful and friendly.
I interviewed only with the department manager.
During the interview I was given a brief overview of the company and the various facilities.
The dress code is business casual (no jeans, etc.) and the hours were 7am - 4:30pm OR 7:30am - 5:00pm.
The basic job duties were described to me (Microsoft office, inventory, etc.)
The interview questions were difficult only in that they were so ... vague and general.
I was shown a printout of charts and graphs and asked how I might obtain information without reference as to exactly what I was supposed to be trying to prove.
It's like asking someone what they would add to your grocery list but not telling them what you were planning on cooking.
A majority of the questions were hazy; not difficult just not well defined. I couldn't seem to get a firm grasp of exactly what the question was I was supposed to be answering. Maybe he was new to interviewing?
I was also advised about the holidays (They are closed for all of the usual, 12 holidays a year, I believe), The vacation policy (1 week first year, 2 weeks second year an 3 weeks after 5 years (Unless salary than 3 weeks after 3 years)). Also given a bonus 5 days a years personal time.
Very good vacation/holiday policy as far as I'm concerned.
