    Staff RN Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics.

    Interview Details

    Applying online is relatively easy, same procedures as most hospitals.

    The interview process takes a long time to even start. Initial contact from HR took months yet I had over 5 years of pediatric experience. I received a random phone call one day from HR requesting an interview. The process now includes a self recorded initial interview which I find impersonal plus current employees are not exempt.

    The actual interview itself was fine. Normal interview questions were asked and I was a given tour. This tour seemed nice but felt like I was being paraded around. I was introduced to staff which felt awkward but everyone was nice.

    Interview Questions

    CNA Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics.

    Interview Details

    Starts with the online application, then video interview, and personal interview. The video interview is very simple, they only ask about 9 questions from which like 3 or 4 are recorded video and the rest is typing.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were actually not that difficult. They covered professional and personal information as well as how you react in a certain type of situation.
      The only aspect I did not like about the experience is that, to the moment, I have not confirmation of whether I got the job or not.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics.

    Interview Details

    Filed out online application, got an email two days later asking that I do a video interview within 48 hrs. It's not with an hr person on the other side of the screen. You get to practice by answering some random questions that hr won't see. You tape your responses and the hr person will review on their own time. I was asked 5 multiple choice questions (what days/shifts are you available) that I didn't have to tape a response for, just click for your response. Then I was asked to respond on video about a time that was stressful, what I thought employers should offer their employees in the workplace, and give an example of your organization skills.

    Professional Training Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics.

    Interview Details

    I couldn't find the right job title/positions, so selected a random one. I have many years of experience in my field. I don't think the recruiters really look at the applications/resumes, because they send out a "we have selected a candidate whose qualifications more closely match the job requirements." On some of the jobs, I can't imagine someone having more experience/qualifications than I have. Even got one that said they had determined I was not qualified for the position. REALLY?! I was infinitely qualified for it. They either didn't read my application/resume, or they just eliminate people randomly, or they already had someone picked for the job. But to tell me I am not qualified when I am is insulting.
