Thank you for the question! We have listed some tips for Summa Health interviewees below.

1. Practice and Prepare
Practice your responses to the typical job interview questions and answers most employers ask. Think of concrete examples you can use to highlight your skills. Have a personal story prepared about why you want to work in the healthcare field.

2. Research the Company
Do your homework about Summa Health and the healthcare industry so you are ready for the interview question "What do you know about this company?" Try to relate what you have learned about the company when answering questions.

3. Get Ready Ahead of Time
When you have an interview lined up, get everything ready the night before. Make sure your interview attire is neat, tidy and appropriate for the type of firm you are interviewing with. Do not wear perfumes or body sprays. Bring a nice portfolio with extra copies of your resume. Include a pen and paper for note taking.

4. Be On Time (That Means Early)
Be on time for the interview. On time means five to ten minutes early. If need be, take some time to drive to the interview location ahead of time so you know exactly where you are going and how long it will take to get there. There is construction locally and on campus at Summa Health, therefore you will need extra time.

5. Smile and relax!

If you are looking forward to retirement with Summa Health System, this is not the company. There is no job security and the administration is terrible.

Run away!Summa has the potential to be a great company. There has been three CEO’s in the last three years, however the does not make it fair for people getting treated unfairly both employees and patients. My day to day job consists of ordering supplies for Surgical Services it was an awesome experience!! The down side was to many unrealistic goals that upper management was pushing for without the leadership to get the job done. My manager was 99% at her desk for the whole three years being there. They hire people that are suppose to have the qualities to meet the job, management bypasses that with HR. I was treated great by the staff that I worked with along with the great people in the OR. However, management treated me horrible and when I went to HR about how I was treated it made matters worse! I put my two weeks in and It was never acknowledged by my management team. I’m just sad at myself for wasting my time with a company that truly didn’t care.

Don't let a place change who you are as an individual. Don't accepted a job just for the money. You will never succeed with that mentality. Be open and willing to learn anything that comes your way. Prove to your company that you are worth your skill set and then some. Don't just go to work for a paycheck. You will quickly find yourself out of a job faster than you came into it. Respect your colleagues no matter how different you all will be. Demand respect in return. If you weren't there to help them, they would be working alone.
