RN (Registered Nurse ASN) Interview

RN (Registered Nurse ASN)

I applied online and interviewed at Kindred Healthcare.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online and got a call back about 3 weeks later to set up an interview. The first interview was one on one, then the second part was a panel interview. No case studies or clinical questions. Very easy, common sense answers.

Interview Question – (Paraphrasing) Tell me about a time there was a change at work you didn't agree with and how did you dealt with it.   Answer Question

Wound Care Nurse-RN Interview

Wound Care Nurse-RN
North Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in April 2014.

Interview Details – I must admit, this was the weirdest interview that I have ever been to. The interviewer never looked me in the eye or looked over my resume and letters of recommendations. To my amazement, she answered a phone call during my interview. The interviewer barely asked me any questions about myself and spoke about herself or the company. She complained about how the healthcare benefits were no the best. After asking the interviewer about how she liked working at Kindred she stated that, “it is challenging”. During the tour the supply room was messy and the staff was not welcoming.
