    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The in person interviews are cool and all, but the online requirements are brutally tedious. I am considering writing a complaint telling how much it pained me to do the tasks. Not hard, but demeaningly annoying.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cleveland Clinic (Beechwood, Stark, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went in phases. Step one watch videos and explanation of Cleveland clinic and RN internship program. Step two group interview it was one on one but you're sitting next to a bunch of others interviewing, from there they fit you with your best choice of hospital and area of interest. You set up an interview with the manager of that location and a shadow experience. My favorite part was the shadow experience. This seems like a fantastic company and great place to continue learning as a new RN.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and got an email within a day or two to schedule a phone interview. The recruiter called me on time and I was asked questions about how I handled different situations. From there, I got a call maybe a week or so later to interview with a nurse manager. I shadowed on the floor with a PCNA for a little while and then met with the manager. She mostly talked to me about work expectations. The only question she asked me was, "How do you handle stress?" I was told after the interview that she would be offering me a position. I got my call for HR within a few days of my interview. Overall, the process was lengthy, but not difficult. Once you get an offer, you have to do a physical, drug test, and orientation. You are paid for your time at orientation, which is great.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly behavioral/scenario questions. One was along the lines of "Tell me about a time you were in a difficult situation." Another had to deal with patient care and how I went above and beyond for someone.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email regarding setting up an initial phone interview literally the next day. Phone interview lasted roughly 30-40 min and consisted of some basic behavioral questions and some background information regarding the position. Next step was an in person interview. Was interviewed by two supervisors. The questions were very basic behavioral questions once again. Shortly after the first interview the hiring manager also interviewed me and asked more personality based questions like "What one trait could you bring to the workplace that may not be currently present?" One week later received a call with an offer.
