I worked at Sonic Healthcare full-time
Flexible schedule to balance work/family
Can share ideas, but many will not be implemented
I applied online. I interviewed at Sonic Healthcare (Providence, RI) in June 2017.
I applied online. I was first interviewed by connect team manager from RI on phone. Then supervisor from NY scheduled phone interview to discuss same. Both the interviews went well. On follow up - after 2-3 weeks, they forwarded my resume to director of connect team and was scheduled for an in-person interview on RI location. During the interview we talked about my background, Sonic's current projects and future projects. Interview went very well and it was very light. We discussed many things regarding MU2, my current work and other EHR related stuff. Once I was done interviewing with the director, manager who first interviewed me on phone came in and discussed team structure, team members and some sensitive information about Sonic's internal work environment, previous boss etc. That went well too; but then at the end I was revealed that I am on hold and Sonic will let me know if any other opportunities come across in future.
At one point manager was talking about team members name, how long they have been working in the team, previous boss and after like 5 minute she mentioned that "They dont have opportunity right now". Which was really shocking.
1. Why would you call a candidate if you dont have opening for third round, specially to meet with director?
2. If you really dont want to hire someone then why would you talk about team so much in detail that the person would think that "I am being provided thorough detail means at some point I am getting a job".
3. During in person interview I was revealed regarding "no opportunity". So its not like that manager discussed sensitive information about team because she has to. If she knew that I am not hired, then why would you discuss it?
I am not disappointed because I am not selected but because I was talked about work culture, teams, future projects in a way pretending like they are 100% planning to hire you. Usually such info are mentioned when you are being selected.
I still wonder; why am I not selected? Because I was mentioned many time during email, phone call and even during in person interview that "You have skills and knowledge we are looking for. Considering your experience we wont have to train you much". So what went wrong?
I appreciate if Sonic ever give me the reason why despite of falling into "perfect candidate" category, I was rejected. Thanks!
