For Philly's CHC Managed Care plan I spoke with a recruiter over the phone. It is important to have your "elevator pitch" handy and polished for the classic tell me about yourself question. Other questions about my work experience were asked so I tried to give examples putting me in a good light. The recruiter said she would get back to me in a week or less and she did. Onto the in person interview.
It has to get a lot better with the personnel that are doing the interviewing. They are not seasoned with people who have years of excellent experience in the work force and who would be first class employees. They are bypassing this type of candidate and not even giving feedback as to the results of the interviews. Everything needs to be done in a more respectful upscale professional manner. If you would like to discuss my input feel free for me to get an appointment to meet with the supervisor of the hiring process. If you would like qualified decent employees you need to treat the interview process with extreme dignity to the individual spending g their time and energy

L O N G!!! You do a phone interview, where they ask scenario type questions. THEN you do a "Skype" interview where they ask basically the same as they did on the phone interview. Then you have to wait to get the email whether you move on to an interview with the manager at that location OR you didn't make it. It's a long drawn out process that takes about 3-4 weeks just to find out if you did or didn't get the job.

Over the phone, I really liked that. The person was professional and very pleasant. What better way to determine phone etiquette, than a phone interview.
