    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hoag Memorial Hospital.

    Interview

    Applied on the website, received a phone call to set up interview with human resources. The HR interview was over the phone, the person was very delightful to speak to. I was then contacted by the manager of that department. The coordinator of the department interviewed me, the interview was all over the place and unprofessional unlike the HR interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a situation where something did not go according to plan, or that failed completely, how did you handle and what was the result.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The wages are set. Hoag offers the lowest of all orange county hospitals in all departments and positions, Human resources will say they annually compare the going rates for positions but offer no public display of their findings. The compensation department sets entry level wages for all positions. You can try to negotiate, hoag normally asks what you made in your last position, this will be used to help them offer what they have budgeted for, your last position wage will help set a starting point.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hoag Memorial Hospital in December 2013.

    Interview

    Initial process was time consuming, needed to discern the nurse recruiter, then fill out a questionnaire. Along with the questionnaire, online login for their site and application to be filled out. Received telephone interview with nurse recruiter within about a day, then about a week later got in person interview with hiring manager/director. Some people I've talked to say it can take up to 1-3 months to even get a reply from the nurse recruiter and may never talk to a hiring manager. I had a friend who recommended me though so it seemed that I got in quicker/easier than most.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really difficult or unexpected, but had to meet with staff in the break room and was asked by them, not the hiring manager what I'd bring to the unit.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No real negotiation phase, was hired per diem, then offered a full time job within a short amount of time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Hoag Memorial Hospital (Newport Beach, CA).

    Interview

    I submitted an application online directly on the website on a Sunday. Later that week I got contacted by the hiring manager asking a few questions. From there, a phone interview with the HR recruiter was scheduled for the following Monday. The phone interview was short and sweet and I was scheduled for an on-site interview on the spot for that Wednesday. The on-site interview consisted of a panel with a peer and to-be manager. From there I was directed that if I was to continue, the next step in the process would be a phone interview with the IT Sr Exec, as he was unable to join the on-site interview. I got contacted the next day, via e-mail, for a phone interview with the Sr Exec that Friday! I was told I would hear back within three business days if I was to get the position or not. Sure enough, I got contacted two business days later by the hiring manager with an offer!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hoag Memorial Hospital (Newport Beach, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I applied to the position, was called by a recruiter from the HR department of the hospital. I was asked to comply with a background check, drug test, physical exam and tb test. I was emailed a website to go to, printed out the background check document, filled it out, signed, and faxed it to the number I was given. Then I set up an appointment to do a drug test, physical exam, and TB test. I was then interviewed by the manager of the department when the results were back. I called to follow up, and was given a second interview where I was offered the Medical Records Clerk Job. Three months later, I was promoted to the Medical Records Transcriptionist job by the same manager.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Ask for more money! I started out at $11.00 per hour, with an $0.87 differential for working night shift. I did not negotiate anything, and was just happy to have a job after a year, but think before you accept!
