    Registered Nurse, Mental Health Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Corizon in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was far more casual than I expected and was with the Assistant Director of Nursing. The director was cheerful and answered my questions. The interview itself was quite short, and lasted only a few minutes. My questions lasted the remainder of the hour. I had many questions as the job description on the internet job posting was short and vague. It was more a sales pitch than a job description. I felt there was some pressure to accept the position at the end of the interview.

    Not having worked in corrections previously, I told the director that I would like a few days to make a decision. I was unable to get in touch directly and left a message on the directors voicemail stating my interest in the job. After two more days I followed up with a call. It was a somewhat abrupt reception and the cheerfulness was gone! I was asked "So you're telling me you're interested?" To which I replied yes. I was then told that she would have to get in touch with the HR department and would contact me. I never heard back from them. I checked online several days later and the job was still posted as open.

    Staff RN Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Corizon in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial hiring process was really fast for me! I put in my application online on Monday at 4pm, I got a call back on Tuesday at 8am when an interview was set for Thursday. During my interview, I felt like she talked more than I did, explaining what working at the prison entailed, and even went into scheduling. I knew it was going really well at the end and I asked about when she would be making decisions and she said she would be calling the next afternoon. She went on to say that she did have to go through all the processes and proper protocol but she did not see why I wouldn't be getting a call from her. At 2pm Friday (the next day) she called to give me an offer and scheduled me to come in the following Monday to start the background check process.

    Interview Questions
    • It felt much more like a conversation than a question/answer session. Either this woman was really good at making me volunteer the info she wanted, or I was really good at interjecting her explanations of the job at the correct time with exactly what she wanted to hear. Maybe a little of both?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    no negotiation, she just told me that the job is based on experience and as a new grad this is what I would be paid.

    Interview Details

    Current recruiter is terrible. They try to make you feel like you need to beg for them to consider you for one of their prestigious positions in a prison.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They will also tell you salary they offer is the same that they offer everyone else... complete BS. Dont accept less than $50/hour unless you are a new grad. There are some experienced providers there making over $60/hour.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called to schedule an interview 3 weeks later. The interview was a group interview with the director and the other department staff members. The interview lasted about an hour and was followed by a facility tour. I was called four days later and offered the job. The conversation was when followed up by an email from the HSA with a salary offer.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    The salary offered was substantially less than the average for the area. After some negotiation, the salary was still not acceptable.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raiford, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Corizon in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    We were interviewed in a group. People who did not qualify were told in front of everbody that they would not be hired. This company took over the health care contract for all the prisons in North Florida. We were state employees. They were probably just interested in filling a few positions(about half) and firing the rest of the workers.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't ask any questions and if we had questions they didn't know the answer and didn't offer to find an answer.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No. It was a take it or leave it. They did not give prospects the option of negotiating. You were called on the phone at work by an HR person. You were told the offer and expected to give an answer right then.
