The process took 8+ weeks – interviewed at MedStar Washington Hospital Center (Washington, DC).
Contacted by HR about a month after I applied. Interviewed by HR and the pharmacy department. Very straight forward questions. More of them explaining their operations than asking questions. Contacted about a month after the interview by HR

Hiring process was easy, interviewed for a position I was not interested in. The interview panel was friendly and courteous but I wasn't interviewed on time. Appointment was at 1030 I wasn't seen until 11.

I applied online – interviewed at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in July 2014.
Was contacted via email to come in for an interview. Met with a nurse recruiter and she asked me the basic questions (tell me about yourself, why nursing, complex patient, why should we hire you?). Went over the pay structure. Then I met with the department head and had a casual conversation followed by clinical questions. Nurses from the unit were brought in and asked questions.

I submitted an application and wrote an email to participate in PCT Interview Day advertised on their site, they contacted me a few days later. There were 2 interviews. one with HR dude, one with supervisor of the hiring department. Common questions about what skills made you a good candidate, what your supervisor would describe as areas to work on, how to deal with lazy coworkers and angry patients/family. Seems that the major thing they're looking for is teamwork: you want to emphasize how you manage disagreements with coworkers constructively, how you understand your limits and are willing to help out and be helped. So you should have some examples of that prepared. Very relaxed interviews, HR guy gave me a lot of positive feedback about my answers.

The process took 3+ months – interviewed at MedStar Washington Hospital Center (Washington, DC) in March 2012.
I applied for the position some time in March. I was contacted April 7, via email to set up an interview. I immediately emailed back and never received a confirmation. I sent another email and and made a few phone calls, and still nothing...It's now May!! I'm very disappointed in the HR department for this company. If you changed your mind about the interview, put the job on hold or decided to choose another candidate then you should let me know something and not leave me in the dark.
