    SLP Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ascende (Seattle, WA (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    the interview was fairly smooth, I kept speaking with a recruiter and then had a phone interview with one school and a Skype interview with another. I am not sure what else to say but this apparently needs a 30 word minimum and I really just want to use this to see other reviews of the company by people in my position applying for an SLP CF position through EBS.

    Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ascende (Houston, TX (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through their online portal and received an initial email from HR contact within one week. The ideal qualifications and my profile were a fit and thus the response was quick. After a few initial discussions with their HR contact, I was invited in for an onsite interview.

    Onsite interview was 10 days (including two weekends) since my online application. Five sets of 30 minute interviews. Most of the questions were behavioral and focused on why I wanted to leave my current employer.

    I presented a rough sample of a model I had created and there was moderate level of interest in it.

    All of the interviewers were very polite and very welcoming. I did not feel stressed and at times had to focus the discussion back to he topic at hand rather than general jargon.

    I received feedback two days after the onsite interview - I was asked about salary expectations. I provided details of my current compensation and they were generous enough to better that but only by a fraction. This was a nice gesture as I was aware of their budget and knew that they were making a special accommodation to assist me with the transition.

    Offer received one week after the onsite interview, accepted four days later. From application to acceptance of offer: 22 days.

    Negotiation

    I provided them details of my current compensation. I was fortunate to be in the two 10th percentile for similarly qualified individuals and thus did not expect a significant improvement. They offered my current + 1.5% which I knew was exceeding their usual budget and thus I accepted without any further negotiation.

    First, started with a brief phone interview with the recruiter. Then asked to come in for half day interview. At that time, I met with people at all levels for about 30-45 mins each. It last approximately 4 hours and included an office tour.

    In terms of planning, be sure to read up on the company website - there is a lot of information available on the website. If you can use the "values", to demonstrate your skills even better. Be prepared to talk about Excel. Also, study current events in the healthcare arena - this seems to be very important at EBS.
