Performance Improvement Consultant Interview

Performance Improvement Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BJC HealthCare.

Interview Details There was a several week delay between my first contact and a call to schedule the face to face interview. Once the interview finally happened it was a panel of about 10 people asking me questions from a list. Normally it would have been intimidating but everyone was very laid back and friendly. I was asked back the next day for a second face to face interview with the departments Sr. Management. These were just a formality and one last chance to make sure I was not a jerk. The offer came within the week.

Interview Question – Not any one question comes to mind. Be prepared to discuss in detail your experience with Lean and Six Sigma.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Some room on salary, none on benefits/vacation.

Group Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Saint Louis, MO (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 12 months - interviewed at BJC HealthCare.

Interview Details The interview process took nearly 2 years. It was a new/specialized position in an innovative area charged with standardizing systems and processes across hospitals that had previously been autonomously organized. I talked with people representing business, information technology, methodology and management over about 15 meetings.
This was an exciting opportunity to establish new project delivery practices in a fast-paced, highly charged, highly visible, and highly valuable work environment.
<Note that this page does not allow interview processes to take ove 365 days. This one was non-standard and took nearly 2 years.>

Interview Question – What area do you want to focus on? Process improvement, quality management, project management?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The offering was fair for the market. Benefits were solid with matching 401K, and health/dental/vision insurance. Earned time off was below expectations. Negotiated job start date, and a draw on Earned Time Off.
