    Patient Registrar Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Maryland Medical Center (Baltimore, MD) in November 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process seemed fairly quickly and easy to me. I applied online through umms careers in mid-October. About 2 weeks later, I received a call from an HR recruiter, which sort of felt like a mini phone interview, she asked a few questions about my career goals & skills, nothing too hard. She then sent a questionnaire survey to my email (to be completed prior to interview; mines was already completed) & scheduled a face to face interview for 2 days later with the manager of the ED department. Upon arrival I was asked to complete a typing test before interviewing with the manager. The face to face interview was just as pleasant. Asked about 10 interview Qs & then it became a little more informal with regular small conversation. Following the interview with the ED manager, she scheduled a peer interview with 2 future co-workers for a week later. The peer interview probably was the most laid back, every interview was seamless, but they both asked about 3 Qs each, explained to me about uniforms and training, asked if I had Qs, then we kinda joked, and and interviewer told me “You’ll recurve a call from the department manager or your HR recruiter.”, shook my hand, and then smiled & said “See you soon!” So I kinda thought I had it already. The next morning I received a call with a job offer from hr & a state date 2 weeks from that date. In short, it was very easy. The interviewer were very respectable and as long you meet the requirements & are genuine, you should be fine! I would said the interview process was probably 3 weeks from the date of application submission, 5 week process in entirety to get onboard I believe.
