    Staff RN Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America.

    Interview Details

    It was more a casual conversation, which was nice. Interviews, especially in person, can be incredibly uncomfortable. Turning an office into a relaxing environment where a discussion can be had is a great way to approach interviews. I also had the advantage of having done multiple clinical at this organization in nursing school and was able to make some key contacts in the process.

    Interview Details

    It was unorganized and unprofessional. The hiring manager took a call during my interview and would text off and on. She was also chewing gum the entire time.

    Content Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Hospital Corporation of America in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the position online and had a very positive experience. I first spoke with a corporate recruiter during a phone screen. Shortly after, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Both phone calls went well. The recruiter was very timely, organized, and friendly. She represented the company very well, and ensured that I had all of the information I needed about the position and the organization. Throughout the interview process, she was my main point of contact. When I interviewed with the hiring manager, I found him to be very friendly, direct, and open about what the position would entail. He represented the company very well. After speaking with him, I felt that I would be a good fit for the position - and I also found that his team has a great opportunity to make a positive impact at the company. It was definitely an exciting experience (and nerve wracking, like any interview).

    After the phone screen with the corp. recruiter and the phone interview with the hiring manager, I was then invited to meet and interview with the team in Nashville. As I'm not from the Nashville area, the corp. recruiter connected me with an assistant from corp. affairs and HR to schedule my in person interview and secure my flight and hotel arrangements. They were all wonderful and super professional.

    And of course, for me, the most important aspect was meeting the people I would've been working with at HCA. In addition to meeting the Director, I also met a VP, an AVP, and the Social Media Strategist. The interview was consistent with the people I had met up to that point. They were all professional, friendly and laid back - very helpful for a nervous interviewee. I appreciated that very much.

    The phone inquiry interview questions varied, much based on your resume/experience. During the main part of the interview, I feel that the type of interview questions they asked were situationally based. So, I recommend studying STARs (Situation Tasks Actions Results) for those who generally get nervous during interviews (as I do).

    Additionally, I think if you're a good fit for the position, your experience will probably speak for itself - and you will be able to answer the questions naturally and with ease. Other than that, I feel that you should be yourself and prepare in advance so your nerves don't get the best of you. I think HCA is a great company, and if you are prepared, then you will set yourself up for success no matter what happens in the end. Good luck to future interviewees. I plan to apply to the organization again when a relevant position is open, and I recommend that others do, as well.

    Negotiate about your job; sometimes there is a small line for your job to be an entry or medium level job, so try to make this clear during the interview. Based on what is expected from you in this job, you can do your negotiations.
