Healthcare Recruiter Interview

Healthcare Recruiter
Oklahoma City, OK (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Maxim Healthcare Services in February 2014.

Interview Details The interview process took about 2-3 weeks. At first I was contacted by a "in-house" recruiter. She conducted an over the phone interview which lasted about 15 minutes. After which she offered to set up an interview with the local branch manager and went over the salary and benefits package. The next week I went in for my face to face interview which went well. Everyone in the office was friendly, the interview itself was less intimidating than I had expected. The interview lasted about an hour long. The manager scheduled me for a "pit sit" the next week which lasted about 3 hours. At the end of the "pit sit" I filled out personal information for them to run a background check. The manager scheduled a time for me to have an over the phone interview with the VP of the region the next day. After that interview I was called back by the branch manager telling me everything was going well, that they were just waiting for the background check to come back. Once it did they offered me the job!

Interview Question – Explain a time in which you had to take responsibility for someone else's mistake, and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

Healthcare Recruiter Interview

Healthcare Recruiter

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Maxim Healthcare Services.

Interview Details I received an e-mail from the Administrative Officer and after speaking briefly with the Director of Business Operations I was scheduled an interview. The interview was pretty typical...we discussed my previous work experience a lot. The recruiter role definitely isn't for everybody, so the DBO definitely wanted a lot of detail of my experience. We talked about the recruiter position...talked a lot about the on call process which was good because that's a big part of why people don't like the job, so it was good that the DBO was up front and honest about it. That day I also interviewed w/ the AO. Both were pretty similar...them just getting a feel for me. Next, I was interviewed by the DBO from a neighboring office. After that, I came back to the original office for a "pit sit" to get a better idea of what it's like being a recruiter. Next time I came in I was given my tentative offer.

Interview Question – Nothing really...compared to other interviews it was relatively easy. Especially if you have relative work experience (sales, phone experience, customer service) and/or a general interest/passion for being involved in healthcare. Typical interview questions   Answer Question
