    Business Outlook


    - Preference to internal candidates to transfer within the organaizatiob - $250/year well being bonus - Tuition reimbursement after a year - Dress code for nursing/care providers but they provide ~$200/year towards their scrubs (although limited options with no options for petite or tall)


    - Loan repayment didn’t apply to me since I graduated > 5 years ago - Expensive to park/commute (able to pay pre-tax but it was incredibly difficult to figure out how to utilize this benefit) - Decentralized teams and systems make it difficult to find assistance and information within this large growing organization - Insurance that covers NM healthcare is the best value, however most NM doctors are scheduling 9-12 months out, no preference for employees - High staff turnover rates leads to many inexperienced staff members leading/managing teams

      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine (Chicago, IL)


      The hiring process was straight forward. There were three to four rounds of interviews with different team members. The team members were friendly and professional. It took about two months from application submission to end.
