    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at UPMC full-time (More than a year)


    Work-life balance is respected, processes exist for almost everything, great networking, positive environment, respectable mission of improving health care, many opportunities to grow by moving around to different areas within the UPMC family


    Can be tough to move up in your current department/position, lots of red tape, slow pace can be frustrating. Can be hard to connect your effort to the success of the company, due to the large size.

    Advice to Management

    Be more nimble to respond to worker feedback. Be more open to adapting existing processes. Continue to respect employees work/life balance, and provide more opportunities to grow in current role/dept.

    Social Worker Bsw Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience


    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at UPMC.


    The first interview was over the phone. All the questions were behavioral / situational questions. Such as , tell me about a time you went above and beyond. Tell me about a time you handled a difficult situation. I then received a phone call from the hospital HR department scheduling a face-to-face interview. The face to face interview was more of a conversation. Explained about the position and gave me and opportunity to ask questions. Only maybe two behavioral questions.
