Advice to Management
None really - continue to recruit and promote good management to support the clinical and administrative teams and promote the best patient care.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pathways Home Health and Hospice (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2018.
The interview process started as you would expect with the typical phone interview with the recruiter. I was then scheduled for a telephone interview with the hiring manager; which lasted about an hour and seemed positive.
I was then invited to an in person interview, but only got the invite after emailing and calling the recruiter to see where I was in the selection process. I was then scheduled for an early morning interview; which consisted first of the hiring manager and then afterwards a manager and a hr ops.
i arrived 20 to 30 minutes early, but by 9am the hiring manager had not shown. I was almost to the point of requesting a reschedule and go home. She showed up 20 minutes late and the interview started at least 30 minutes behind schedule. Bad sign!! While she apologized this does not give a good appearance. The interview was standard.
The second interview with the hr manager and hr ops individual did not seem like an interview but rather a discussion. In some instances, information I should not have known was disclosed but I did not think much of it other than it was odd.
One week of radio silence. I emailed the recruiter no response. I called him no answer. I then emailed the hiring manager no response. A few days later I get an email indicating they gave the offer to another candidate.
I would not recommend applying at this company.
