    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Mayo Clinic in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and got a call to schedule an phone interview after 1 week. The interview was with the HR department and it was very hard. The questions were: Why nursing? What kind of nurse you want to be? Give me an example of a time you had a difficult patient. Where do you see yourself in 5 years. Can you work weekends and holidays? tell me what separates you from other candidates, and why we should hire you. The person interviewing me seemed very bored, and never asked me about an answer i gave. It seemed very mechanical. I believed I did good.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mayo Clinic in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Behavioural Interviews are always used. At the time I applied for this position, I was out of the area and they accommodated me by doing a webcam interview. I was granted a second interview but was not offered the position in the end. They did not provide feedback and I had to email the HR partner myself after waiting a week (which I correctly assumed to mean I wasn't selected.)
