    Health Systems Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (United States)

    Interview

    The interview scheduling was very easy. The recruiter sent me a link to choose the date/time that worked best for me. She was prompt and very friendly. Based on the interview, it seemed they hadn't reviewed my resume as they asked me if I had experience with things I clearly hadn't done. The questions they asked were specific to work done in a hospital setting, which I had never worked. They wanted a candidate who had done a function inside a hospital for a period of 3-5 years to transfer to their office.
    Interview

    Simple, what do you know about this role. Asking questions about my past experience.
