Mission: Our Living Well Program works with individuals and their families so that they are able to proactively participate in their care by identifying, incorporating and communicating their priorities into current and future care decisions.
I have been working at Vital Decisions full-time (Less than a year)
This is a great place to work. The people are friendly and so welcoming. The employees are definitely high quality. There is a lot of support and supervision. They believe in honesty and transparency here and are open to hearing criticism and actually fixing the issues.
Making the calls and having some people say they are not interested in the program can be discouraging.
Advice to Management
Maybe it would be easier for some specialist not to have to do any outreach to referrals and only get follow up clients.
I applied online. I interviewed at Vital Decisions (New York, NY).
1. Phone interview ~45 mins; phone interview with recruiter, they tell you about position and have you discuss why you would want to work there.
2.skype interview ~45 mins; would be in person but new location. Discussed in depth your training, theoretical orientation, and company.
3. Workshop, 3 hours; on site training workshop, hear back shortly after unfortunately start date is 6 months from interview and offer which doesn't make a lot of sense.
Employees in our Edison, NJ office organized a drive to collect donations, gift cards and presents for children and families at St. Peter's Pediatric Cancer Unit. Employees went to the unit to personally deliver the gifts!
