Advice to Management
Needs to hire more staff
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swedish.
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.
It was a mistake to accept the position.
