Registered Nurse Interview

Registered Nurse
Raleigh, NC

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Duke University Health System in November 2010.

Interview Details – I went to the hospital in person to speak with a recruiter but a receptinist at HR stated that I had to submit my resume on line first. Since I was employee in the past, it would be a rehire, and I already knew people in management. There was no openingpositions available on line for medical surgical RN at the time of my interview. I went to see the manager for surgical floor but she was not in her office. I run into a clinical specialist, and he set an interview date with a medical floor manager for me. Three days later, I went in, had an interview with a medical floor manager (clinical specialist present in the room) and was offered an job. For the technicality, I still had to apply my resume on line. One of the nurses was retiring in a month, and I became her replacement.

Interview Question – The manager at the time asked me, knowing that I used to work for Duke Raleigh, what I would change about the work place.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate at the time of hire but asked if I could have a weekend position (one of the weekend option nurses left) after working for a year. It was finally granted 9 months later.

Grants and Contracts Administrator Interview

Grants and Contracts Administrator

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Duke University Health System.

Interview Details – Interview took an hour and a half. Interviewed with 3 different people because they had two different positions available. It has been several years since I have had to interview for a job, so I probably was not prepared for what I was about to walk into. Most of the interview questions were behavioral based questions.

Interview Question – I should've been a little better prepared for this interview. Oh well, maybe next time.   Answer Question
