    Patient Transporter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UofL Hospital (Louisville, KY) in December 2014.


    I applied for the patient transport job online. Once my application was received, HR contacted me to schedule an interview with the supervisor of Transport. The supervisor asked a series of questions and I was told he would call if I got the job. A couple hours later the supervisor called and I got the job. A week later I went through a 2-day orientation.
