I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted a few days after applying online at which time an interview(in-person) was scheduled.I went and it was akward, but i was schedule for a shadow? at the same time i was sent info regarding benefits and pre-employment requirements? After shadow i was sent a reference request, all were completed within 24hrs and still no word from HR it has been 3 days now(i'm very confused as to what i should expect).

Interview Question – The hardest part is they seem to infer that you may not meet the requirements(underqualified), yet you should've if they called, right?   View Answer

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Interview Details – Phone interview--This was very awkward and lasted about 20minutes. A lot of behavioral questions. Then I had an in-person interview, equally awkward. We were in a small room that could only fit a table and table two chairs. It lasted about 15minutes. Again, a lot of behavioral questions, long periods of silence and the interviewer took ALOT of notes. I left unsure of anything.

Interview Question – How would you advocate for a patient who is in pain and the physician is refusing to order pain medication. Not the hardest question but one I remember.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – This was my first job out of college. I did not negotiate.
