    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HealthSouth (Florence, SC).

    Interview

    two people was in the room to interview me, michelle james is the nurse manager and she is a liar...she says she'll email you a skills assesment test and ask you to call her after you take it, but that is not true, instead of telling people that the position has been filled or instead of saying that she has found a more desireable candidate she leads people on and gives them false hope. Do not trust her! i put in my two weeks notice at my current job because she told me that the hiring process would start as soon as she sent me the skills assesment the same day she intervied me, she won't return my calls and she never sent the email. i called human resources to as about the assesment, and theu said the position was already filled. she has done this to other people besides me. i hope she gets replaced with more honest management

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at HealthSouth.

    Interview

    I had one recruiter interview , a face to face, another telephone interview and then a scheduled face to face. I would have to continuously reach out to the recruiter to keep the process moving. The hiring manager did not write anything down during the interview.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    There were too many periods with no information and a lack of responsiveness from the recruiter. I really felt it was reflective of the culture and not a good organizational fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at HealthSouth.

    Interview

    Communication was haphazard -- They asked if I was interested in an interview and I said yes, they asked when I was free and I told them, then they never got back to me. Two days later I get an email that said "We'll call you in a couple minutes"

    If I hadn't have checked my email I never would've known to expect it, and even so I barely had time to prepare given the lack of notice. This felt unprofessional to me.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at HealthSouth (Morgantown, WV).

    Interview

    It is easy to get a job here. They will hire anyone, even with impaired or monitored license. Fill out online app or come in and ask for nurse manager, they will interview you on the spot. You will then meet with HR for offer, sign papers. Orientation is not the greatest, a few days of general orientation then you will be assigned a preceptor. Usually you will work with several preceptors

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask about your experience and tell you a bit about rehab but don't ask any hard questions. After you are hired they will give you a medication test before you can pass meds.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not open to negotiation
