    I have been working at University of Kansas Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    401k, lots of holidays, ample sick and vacation time. You will have more vacation than you know what to do with. You also get to roll over up to 300 hours to the next year.

    Cons

    Poor management. Management does not encourage moving within the company. It also does not give many reviews so you have no idea how you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about helping your employees progress with KUMC. This would be a great way to retain employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center (Kansas City, KS) in March 2017.

    Interview

    As a prospective employee, if you want to invest a lot of time and energy in seeking out employment (ex: the application, the personal assessment, 3 rounds of phone interviews) with KU, I'd suggest checking out some of the other employers in town first. They have the courtesy and professionalism to notify you by way of email or phone call, vs. a cold, auto-generated e-notification from KU. Clearly, growing pains (and possibly staff shortages) at this organization leak into the candidate experience. I think it is indicative of their views on candidates, and most likely, their employees.

    Trust your gut when exploring new opportunities. If you like working with intelligent, highly-qualified, experienced professionals, take note of the HR staff and the vetting process. In each of those conversations, if not one unique question was asked outside of a low-energy/enthusiasm pre-formatted screening battery, and very little time (if any) was allotted to sell you the organization, specifics about the role, and WHY you should want to work with them, then you might be happier elsewhere. I see it as a mentality that you should feel lucky to be called by them, a 1-way street.

    The fact that they interview candidates at 7:30PM at night (via non-employee Consultant in Salt Lake City), and 8:00AM on a Saturday morning (via the Chief HR Officer) is a red flag in my mind. Very strange. SLOW-moving as well.

    Overall, one of the worst impressions of an employer I’ve ever walked away with. I think I dodged a bullet. They obviously do not care about their Employment Brand and have very little understanding of how easy it is for candidates to steer away future hires within their network.
