    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Banner Health.

    Interview Details

    Behavior based questions, about 20 of them. Not too difficult, but it probably is better to have an answer for each question, than to not. just say strong key words that they are looking for, like quality, driven, excellence. they look for these three things while interviewing: Energy, enthusiasm, and excitement.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Banner Health.

    Interview Details

    Filled out plenty of online applications. Was under review for about 3 weeks. Was called in to come and interview. Met with a recruiter first and answered basic questions, preferred schedule, any weekly obligations, etc. Also had to answer how I will uphold their mission statement. I met with 2 unit managers from 2 different units and answered about 7 or 8 questions. Very simple. Just no chemistry with the unit managers. It was a mass interview they were interviewing people from 7 am to 5 pm and i felt they were bored by the time it was my turn.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Banner Health.

    Interview Details

    Always find out the director/manager of the department you are hiring for and send them a personal resume and cover letter and possible call. HR very understaffed and may not respond or delete your resume.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Banner Health in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted to setup one interview. After attending this initial interview, which was one-on-one, I was scheduled for a follow-up interview. The second interview was a "panel" and containted six senior nurse-managers. Both interviews consisted of behavioral interview questions and neither contained any "typical" questions (i.e. weakness, strength, leadership, why this field, though they did ask "Why you?").

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Banner Health in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Started out at a temp, or "travel nurse" so I was already acquainted with the hiring manager. Interactions were not intimidating, or "scary" more than the norm. I was basically offered the job before the interview so the formal setting was brief and only hospital policy basically. The interview consisted of reasons I became a nurse, expectations for my role on the unit, and some real life field Q & A.
    Give comprehensive answers that exemplify "A" quality nursing and you will fit into the Banner quality standards for hire.

    Interview Questions
    • A situation where there was conflict with a staff member/ colleague that required some sort of intervention on my part.   View Answer
    • Worst clinical situation to date, and how did you handle it?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations. I was given my lowest asking hourly of $32/hr given this was my hourly pay as a traveler. Considered this to be roughly the average hourly for my experience in this area...perhaps better? (not cerrtain).
