    Got interview through school recruitment process. Interviews were very nice and friendly. Typical questions of 5-year plan and what my strengths and weaknesses are.

    Interview

    After applying on the Children's Hospital website, they contact you by phone to schedule an in person appointment. The interview is with two people and they ask you to first describe yourself and your background related to the job. Both interviewers had a paper with a bunch of questions that they can draw from to ask you. They asked questions like what was a goal you made and what you have done to achieve it and your availability if you are hired. There were a lot of scenario questions where they ask you what you would do when talking to a parent or patient who has called down from the patient room requesting certain menu items such as a parent requesting grapes for their child, but grapes are considered a choking hazard and not offered for the child. Another scenario was asking what you would do if lactose intolerant patient called down for scrambled eggs but the system showed that the eggs from the kitchen contain dairy. After these scenario question, they ask if you have further questions for them.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland (Oakland, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Standard interview process. First fill out the application online. Check to make sure you have completed all the attached forms, collect and organize all your medical records, submit the forms to the volunteers office in the Hospital on the 3rd floor, wait for an email response (typically 4-6 weeks) though I've heard they cycle through the applications so if you submit at the beginning of the cycle the process will go faster. Once contacted by the volunteer office you'll schedule an interview with the volunteer coordinator, get a background check, explain why you're interested in volunteering, what you're future career plans goals are, what part of the hospital interests you the most. You'll then rank your departments in order of interest and will be selected for a certain department. All volunteers are required to initially spend 10 hours or something like that at the art cart which is basically the outpatient center where you draw and do fun coloring activities with children instead of clinical volunteering. It still counts toward your clinical volunteer hours.
