undefinedArizona Lifestyle

With more than 300 days of sunshine every year and a growing economy, the Valley of the Sun has become one of the nation's best places to live and work.

The Valley has a booming high-tech industry and exploding real estate market.  It offers award-winning restaurants and limitless shopping opportunities.  Tournament-level golf courses and urban mountain parks are just a few of the recreational opportunities at your fingertips here.  And Phoenix is located just a few hours away from countless top vacation destinations, making weekend getaways to places like Sedona, San Diego, and Mexico a reality.

Given all that, it's no surprise Phoenix has become the sixth largest city in the country with a population of 1.6 million.   And with a lot of people, we see a lot of patients.  The pediatric population in the Greater Phoenix area has grown from 350,000 when the Hospital incorporated in 1980 to nearly 1 million today.  Estimates project that number will reach 1.5 million children before 2030.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Phoenix Children's Hospital (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview and an in person interview which consisted of nine people. Never heard back after a couple of follow ups and was told that the position was still open and that HR will get back to me. I just assume something is going on internally. Somewhat unprofessional.
