    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Gainesville, FL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interview entailed nurse manager and peer interview.
    First a recruiter calls and interviews over the phone. Then you get called in for a manager interview which is pretty basic. HCA uses a survey that supposedly hones in on your weaknesses; team player, energy, or customer service skills...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Gulfport, MS) in August 2014.

    Interview

    After having my initial interview via the phone, I was scheduled to meet the existing Director and CIO. I received a call as scheduled but with just the Director. We had an excellent interview and it went so well the Director stated he would recommend they I get scheduled for the panel interview with the Gulf Port leadership as well as the IT leadership. Some time went by and then I got an email stating I wasn't being considered any longer. I emailed the HR rep stating how disappointed I was, She returned the email saying that my salary requirements were out of line which I had already mentioned it was within the range - a non-issue. She said she was going to look further into it and I'm still waiting for a reply.
