You very well may outshine the interviewing manager in experience, professionalism, punctuality and integrity. Plan how you will either drive the interview in this circumstance or walk away knowing you wasted your morning meeting with someone who Highmark probably should send to manager 101 classes.
Management, timelines are always unreasonable. No work or life balance. Even when taking vacation time, still expected to be on call.
What is the vacation policy like at Highmark Health? How many vacation days do you get per year?
They don’t necessarily have “vacation” day, instead they have paid time off (PTO). For a full time employee you receive 20 days (160 hours) of paid time off. You also have nine federal holidays off that are fully paid. Additionally, you have 1 day (8 hours) of volunteer time, where the company pays you to take a day off and volunteer in the community. As for the “vacation policy” their is a certain daily allotment of hours off and it is first come first serve.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Highmark Health a better place to work?
I would not lose focus on the internal customers, which are the employees! I feel the many acquisitions and partnerships have put a lot of pressure on the "higher ups" and healthcare reform made it even more challenging but the only way to survive is to improve the relationship with your employees. Take care of the employees, they will take care of the clients. I would also improve the contracts obtained, not all business is good business or necessary. Some organizations have to be left leave alone. Too many acquisitions and partnerships can cause more money and stress than needed.
