MEG Administrator Interview

MEG Administrator

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System in June 2014.

Interview Details – Spoke with Phone Interviewer who gave brief background of the company and then proceeded to ask relatively simple questions about why I chose my particular degree, why I wanted to work at Cook Children's, and answered the small boatload of questions I had.

Was told that my resume would be forwarded to the department manager and that I should receive an interview, although my online application status stated that it had not been forwarded on from the recruiter.

 After two weeks heard nothing, and was told that the manager would be getting back to me the following week. After another two weeks my application status was finally updated to reflect the fact that I had been passed over.

A few days later, the recruiter contacted me to inform me that the position had been temporarily inactivated.

Interview Question – How do you define patient care? (Not really hard, but unexpected coming from a purely non-clinical research background)   Answer Question

Anesthesia Manager Interview

Anesthesia Manager
Fort Worth, TX

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System in November 2012.

Interview Details – Behavioral interview format of other nurse managers from Perioperative Services. I was flown day before interview. I was very impressed by the professionalism as well as the team-oriented leadership of Peri-operative Services. I interviewed with the Medical Director and was given a tour of the Medical Center. It was a great experience.

Interview Question – I did feel like being interviewed by a groups of over 10 managers sitting around the table reading questions from a script was unnerving. I can't think of any particular question that was difficult or unexpected   Answer Question

Graduate Nurse Internship Interview

Graduate Nurse Internship

I applied online and interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System.

Interview Details – The process took a couple of months from the time I applied to the time I got an interview. Three people interviewed me with typical behavioral questions (Tell me about a time when you made a mistake, etc.) They were nice, but also professional and direct. They first take you to a room where you wait with a few other nurses who are currently in the program and you can ask them questions about it. After the interview the current nurse residents gave me a tour and answered more of my questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond for a patient.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System in May 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was very quick, was given an overview of the job, spoke with the physicians for a couple of minutes each and that was it.
