    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swedish.

    Interview

    The hiring process starts with a phone interview with a recruiter. Once this is complete, an interview is scheduled with the hiring manager and possibly two team members. In most situations this is the end of the process and the manager of the department will make a selection. HR will then call and make a job offer.

    During the process, I had a second interview and was interrogated by the a senior leadership person. This should have been a huge red flag. The red flag was ignored. The department manager offered the job over the phone. The rate of pay was significantly less that what a contract person was making for the same position. The manager was embarrassed. The manager contacted HR to obtain a pay range to offer. It was a little better that what the contract pay was.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult was to keep my composure while being interrogated by a senior leader. It was awful and very unexpected. I had never experience anything like this before. She was rude, demeaning, and very unprofessional.   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    It was a mistake to accept the position.
