Nurse Practitioner Interview

Nurse Practitioner
Des Moines, IA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Iowa Health System in January 2010.

Interview Details – 2 interviews but this was several years ago. One by phone and one in person. Always be prepared for the interview process. It helps to have good references from colleagues who may be within the system already.

Interview Question – Discuss the most difficult patient in your practice and how you handled the situation   Answer Question

Nurse Interview

Nurse
Cedar Rapids, IA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Iowa Health System in February 2013.

Interview Details – You apply online, and the application gets sent to the manager. I recieved a phone call a few days after applying, and come into the office for an interview soon after. A week later I was offered the job and accepted. Because I was already working at the hospital, I did not have to re-do the drug test. The orientation process was very thorough, and was able to follow a nurse on the floor for a few months. I felt very prepared.

Interview Question – No questions were really very difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – at that point I was not comfortable negotiating my salary

Computer Programming Positions Interview

Computer Programming Positions
West Des Moines, IA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Iowa Health System in November 2008.

Interview Details – Interviewed with a manager from IT during a private job fair the company had at a local hotel. The only information I could get about the available positions was just the job title. There were no job descriptions or job qualifications provided and the IT manager was pushy about me applying for a position based on job title alone. He acted annoyed when I started asking a few questions about job duties and qualifications. I told him I would think about the positions and send a resume in if interested.

Interview Question – Here is a list of jobs. Which one do you want? (No job descriptions were available)   View Answer
