Accounting Intern Interview

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Sutter Health.

Interview Details I applied online through my school for an internship with Sutter and heard back from them a little over month and a half. The interview was pretty typical, had questions about my customer service experience, why do I want to study accounting, etc. Overall, it has been a good experience and I am happy that they wanted me to join their team.

Interview Question – Nothing out of ordinary, just questions of why you would be a good fit, why do you want to study accounting, etc.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Volunteer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Sacramento, CA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sutter Health in July 2013.

Interview Details The interview process was very easy. There is really no wrong awnser. It is usually over the phone, however my experience was in person. They basically just want to know the reason you want to volunteer at their hospital. There is no stress or complications, everything went smoothly and a lot of good help from the volunteer services.

Infrastructure PM Interview

Anonymous Employee
Mather, CA (US)

I applied online - interviewed at Sutter Health in August 2013.

Interview Details Inistial interview in phone. Fairly short, but to the point. Got immediate feedback as to how I did. Feed back was good which led me to think I'd make it to the next round which I did. In person interview was within 2 weeks and had representatives from 3 areas relating to the position. Process was quite informal and also went well. Withing 10 day received an offer which I accepted.

Interview Question – Most unexpected thing that happened was that the hiring mgr for this position attended the final in person interview and just commented that we had already spoken as he did the previous phone interview, and that he didn't need to ask anymore questions as he was satisfied with my previous answers and he was okay with me as far as he was concerned.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It went through a 3rd party recruiter and wasn't officially an offer untuil the background check was completed.
