    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

    Interview Details

    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 through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

    Interview Details

    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?

    Interview Questions
    • 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
    Negotiation Details
    No I was not. I attempted but they have pre-set out calculation of experience and how much they pay.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was instructed to come to a local office and there was no parking so I had to call to see where to park I was told to park on the street. I went into my appointment my interviewer was 20 minutes late and really did not ask strategic questions. I felt after 15 minutes of waiting I had changed my mind about this company to begin with. I was directed to another interview where I had to sit and wait ten more minutes for the interviewer to show up. Less than professional especially for someone in the business. I had already made my decision in the first ten minutes of waiting.

    Interview Questions
    • How would I work with another new manager. Very open ended question   Answer Question

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online application with "essay" type questionnaire. Initial interview was online video interview with behavioral questions. Next interview was in-person with a panel. Everyone had watched the online interview and some had follow-up questions from that, but most of the questions were behavioral. Next step was shadowing on the unit. Once I passed that there was a multiple choice nursing exam to take. I was told it was the last "hoop" to jump through and if I pass I'd be getting a job offer. Not true. Passed with flying colors, received a "thanks, but no thanks" email about a month later. Called the recruiter to ask what happened and how I could improve, but she never returned my calls.

    Lab Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was via video which consisted on 10 questions about my character and the position in which I was applying.
    Second interview was with the recruiter who also gave a ten question written test about the procedures of the position. And he gave an overall description of the position.
    Last interview was a 3 person panel consisting of the dept head, dept supervisor and your potential reporting supervisor. This interview consisted of constant questions about how you would deal with the negatives of the job. It seem as though they wanted someone who has ran into frequent complications and tell how they dealt with it. Everything seemed negative, no positives seemed to be taken into consideration for this particular position. For example: if the computer crashed how would I handle it? My answer was to get the data backed up or handwritten and advise the supervisor of the issue but that wasn't what they was looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were those of bad encounters that I didn't see as negatives but instead I was able to continue working   Answer Question

    I was contacted to schedule a phone interview about 3 days after I had applied online. I had a phone interview where they asked general and behavioral questions. After the phone interview, I had to send off my references. After that they scheduled a second interview which I actually never needed because HR decided to hire me after the first interview.
