    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lynchburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Centra Health (Lynchburg, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was fairly extensive! I had 1 interview with the nurse recruiter, 2 panel interviews, and a shadowing on the unit I was applying for. It seemed like a pretty sought after position, so that could be why. At first they said they didn't have any more positions available, then the unit manager called me about a week later and said that more positions had been approved so she offered me the job over the phone!
    The panel asked quite a few questions. The shadowing was about 6 hours, but was fairly laid back.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Centra Health (Lynchburg, VA).

    I had 2 on-site interviews with the Director, and on the second interview I spoke with 3 of the technicians who were working in the department.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Centra Health (Roanoke, VA).

    Interview

    The interview was very short and more of an informal conversation. The job interview was given to me strictly because I met someone in management and did not hinge what so ever on my education or qualifications. Was offered the job on the spot and told them that I would need time to think it over. Was called the next day and informed that my decision must be rendered.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked what I really wanted to do with my career or life.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Base compensation set and I was given only one day to consider the job.

    The interview was for half and hour and interviewer asked standar questions. I was slight disconcerted because it seemed as if the interviewer wasn't really listening to my responses and she seembed a bit rushed. However, I received an offer fairly quickly.
