    I have been working at Valley Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The medical providers are universally skilled, dedicated, and professional.

    Cons

    Callous, inept senior office administrators who create a toxic culture that contributes to inefficiency, petty and harmful staff behavior, immature backstabbing, and roguish attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for reckless and voiced discrimination by management against employees with disabilities, such as "Do we really want to keep HIM?" Watch out for the distorted egos of leaders who literally believe and declare, "I command a room." (Obviously, this person does not comprehend why people are REALLY staring at the flawed graduate of a "degree mill" institution?) Deal with the embedded practice of supervisors who recruit, hire, and retain people who are just like them. Otherwise, you will have a staff of petty, narcissistic, mean-spirited, myopic, walking catastrophes who undermine the best efforts of medical providers to fulfill the mission. Incivility erodes safe, quality medical practice. Take action to correct your "bad hire" so when the inevitable problems arise, you are not complicit.

    Patient Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Valley Medical Center (Renton, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call back in about 2 weeks. Had a quick phone interview and then came in for a face to face next day. Met both hiring managers and they laid out all the areas that they needed improvement on and if I was up to the challenge. Everything went great and I was then offered to take a pre employment paperwork to continue the process. I was told to take a drug test and expect to get a call back from the hiring manager. Weeks go by and no call back, no email no nothing. As if nothing ever happened. Kept checking online for a status but no answer. Called HR and was given the 'wait for the hiring manager to call you' answer. Which in terms mean 'sorry we moved on'. What they dont tell you is that you wont be hearing from them at all if you received the job or not. Literally *crickets*, that you'll be stringing along to bunch of maybe. But silence is the answer. But the lack of communication on there part was probably the most unprofessional process I'be been through. Needless to say, it was a big hassle for a short answer that I never received from them.
