I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (Atlanta, GA) in September 2015.
Interviewed with two very nice ladies. They both had a copy of my resume and asked question based on that after describing the details of the job. It was very comfortable and at the end they told me that I will be getting a call to schedule my shadowing hours from my recruiter.

Recruiter contacts you to set up an interview. I met with the manager for a one on one interview. At the interview they ask you behavioral questions. Manager mentioned that I would need to come back and do a second interview and then do a shadowing day. I withdrew my application because the job wasn't a good fit for me.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.
I was contacted for an online interview. Shortly after, I was contacted for an in-person interview. When I went in, they were very dry and really looking at my resume. They almost had no personality. Very introverted! I had all of the necessary qualifications and experience. After the interview, they said they were "moving forward" with my application. They set me up to shadow a pct. I asked when I would find out and they said a week later. Two weeks later I got a call from the recruiter saying they were considering me for a transporter position, not a tech anymore. The whole process took about five weeks.

They use a selection known as Targeted Selection meaning they are looking for a S.T.A.R. Always make sure you have an example where everything was NOT perfect. No one wants to have a PERFECT Star.

You go through one of their HR recruiters first. Then a nursing recruiter. Then you go to the department you are interested in for an interview. Then you shadow a nurse for 4 hours on that unit. Questions they ask are on a preprinted form. HR recruiters seem very disorganized and don't seem to know what the other one is doing.
- Describe a situation where you had to deal with...? How do you relax after having a stressful day at work? Do you work well with...? How would you deal with a last minute assignment change? Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
I interviewed for the same position in two different. They use a set list of questions. The questions were the same for both departments. They ask all candidates the same questions so that they can rate them against eachother. The interviews felt forced and awkward. I felt weird about the score card, and I didn't really like the whole process. It's hard to get to know someone when the conversation isn't allowed to flow. They also you put you through testing before you can even be recommended for an interview. For an admin role, I took Microsoft office and typing tests. However, the Office tests were based on an old version of Officd that they don't even use anymore. I would have loved to work there, but the interview process was really odd to me.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (Atlanta, GA) in February 2015.
I applied on the CHOA website. I had to complete a personality test before I submitted the application. After about two weeks I was emailed to complete a video interview via the internet. The video interview was about 6 questions. About a 7-10 days later I was asked to come in for an one on interview.
- Why do you want to work at CHOA? Give an example of how you have dealt with a major change? Answer Question
I did not try to negotiate, it is a part time position

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (Atlanta, GA) in February 2015.
The process leading up to the interview was pretty smooth. Filled out the application online and was contacted by their recruiting staff about a week later. Interview was set up with the laboratory manager. Showed up for interview, which I thought went well. Pretty standard questions regarding the laboratory and what the expectations were. At the end of the interview I asked when I would expect to hear something and was told they had an interview scheduled in 3 weeks and after that they would decide who to call back in for second interviews with the lab directors. After 4 weeks I e-mailed the recruiter and asked her what the status was. She told me they were still doing interviews and would be making a decision who to call back the middle of the following week. But she assured me I was still being considered. Waited two more weeks and e-mailed again. Told once again they had more interviews and would make a decision by the end of the week. Following week, told the same thing again. After being told "we are going to make a decision this week" 4 weeks in a row I didn't bother following up. And to date, I still have not heard anything. I'm glad I didn't get the job as I would have turned it down as I believe this behavior is very unprofessional and rude! I wouldn't want to work for a place that is this disorganized and unprofessional. The recruiter should have followed up with me regarding the position.

Currently they are short staffed in HR so don't take a long response from them personally. Very kind hr staff will do initial screening and phone interview. Then you meet with manager for actual interview. They have set of behavioral questions all managers are required to ask minimum of 3 or 4 of a set Choa list. They are all very typical tell me a time when... From the areas I can remember team work/ getting along with others, critical thinking, dealing with change, work ethic. Usually ask tell me a time that you made a mistake what was the mistake, what was your response, and outcome?
- None. They were all typical. If you google interview nursing questions and have a pre-thought out senerio for each will be a breeze. Answer Question
No I was not. I attempted but they have pre-set out calculation of experience and how much they pay.
