    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abington Memorial Hospital.

    Interview

    The interview process very pretty informal. First, there was a very short interview with HR that had generic behavioral and situational questions related to nursing and otherwise. Next, I met with two nurse managers. It was very unprofessional. One of the nurses was wearing a sweatshirt and was texting when I walked into the room. She continued to do so even after I sat down and began to answer the other nurses' questions. I questioned whether they really wanted me there in the first place or if they were interested in what I had to say at all. I was disappointed as I thought very highly of Abington Memorial Hospital before this experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abington Memorial Hospital in September 2014.

    Interview

    4 step interview process. First with Human Resources, then Director of the Unit on the same day. I came back again for second step: Interview with other Managers and the peer interview. The Managers asked the same questions the Director asked. The questions from peer team were more about how I would fit in with them. The peers gave accurate picture of Job: schedule, flexibility, work load, acuity of the unit, benefits, support system and work culture.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are thorough, do your homework. The benefits are expensive. I did not expect to pay for my own parking for a Job interview especially when parking is in the campus. During the peer interview, many questions that the peers raised created holes in the disclosure of the job requirement. Basically, the peers painted the reality of the Job as opposed to the fairy tale of the HR and Director.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The peer interview disclosed problems with the management. I could tell how unhappy they were with the management. 2. The cost of health benefits was too expensive. 3. Limited opportunity for service recognition or reward.- performance reviews not tied to pay.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Abington Memorial Hospital.

    Interview

    I was first called for a screening interview and then brought in for an in person interview. Because of time constraints I met with the entire team at once (a little overwhelming, but a good experience). Once I was done meeting with the team I meet with HR. I was called soon after an offered a position.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate this time because the rate and position were exactly what I was looking for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abington Memorial Hospital (Abington, PA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Received an email from their HR department asking me to set up a time to interview. Was told I would be interviewing with two people, one from HR and the other from Health Information Systems (HIS). They were very flexible on times and dates, and from then on it was just waiting about a week for the interview itself. Well, I come in at 2:00 when my interview is at 2:30, and had been told to show up about 10 minutes early to fill out paperwork. Pre-interview paperwork takes about 25 minutes, despite my materials being on-hand, and then I'm called into the actual interview. Instead of a group interview, it turns out to be consecutive interviews with the two individuals, with the HR representative going first. The whole process took 3.5 hours, and both people covered similar territory. Neither had read the online application I submitted, so there were issues right away with compensation, which is never posted on their website. The HR person asked me standard questions like "list three adjectives your former boss would use to describe you" etc., while the HIS person asked more probing, detail-oriented tests surrounding critical thinking and experience. Many details about the position were not included in the job description, including mandatory on-call time and the campus at which I would be working, which would have impacted my desire to go on the interview in the first place. The organization seems to be going through a major change, with the HIS department totally gutted and hiring on people for AMH itself and a satellite hospital they recently acquired. Was not impressed with the facilities, nor the opacity of the actual interview process. No one ever emailed me back to let me know the status of my employment, except to say that another position which I had not interviewed for was filled. I would not recommend this organization.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Abington Memorial Hospital in June 2011.

    Interview

    The HR department was very disorganized and unprofessional. When I interviewed with HR, the person was taking other calls (some for their side jobs). They even messed up with some of the paperwork. I had to press several times to confirm I did not get the job. (I felt after many interview, they could have at least emailed me a response.) Also, I told them what I currently make, but after two interviews they told me I was above the range for the position. HR should have pre-screened this like other HR departments. I ended up wasting a lot of time and energy. Abington might be a good place to work, but you will have to deal with a lame HR department to get there.
