    Foundation Position Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Loma Linda University Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quite long, but I was warned of this in advance by the hiring manager. There were multiple hoops to jump through, but most were common for the interview process. I applied on the website and then followed up with an email to a director in the hiring department. I highly suggest personalized follow up as their HR department seems to call select applicants. My process went backwards--I spoke to and impressed the hiring department who called HR to have my application expedited, which mean about 3-4 weeks before I was fully hired. I suggest an active approach with follow up and thank you notes.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard interview questions. I was brought in with two other candidates and met with the following individuals (each candidate rotated through individuals; it was not a group interview: Hiring manager and her soon-to-be new VP, a HR representative and, finally, two board members (this position worked closely with the board). I enjoyed getting to know the various individuals. All of my questions were welcomed and answered.   Answer Question

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Loma Linda University Medical Center in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I worked that unit through the registry for about 8 months and after the LLUMC changed CEO's the registry wasn't used anymore so I applied directly with them and recieved an interview within a couple days as I already knew the charge nurses there. I had to pass a physical which was more rigorous than most I've taken in the past. It required a step test of one minute, lifting a 100 pound maniquen off a table and dragging it over 100 feet and back, and having someone check how much fat I had with calipers. Then I had to hold two 20 pound sand bags over the top of my head for a minute. I was sore for three days afterward, but I passed it.

    Interview Questions
    • She didn't really ask any questions. We ended up talking about the picture of her cat and I asked if I was hired and she said yes.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was told I would get $ 41.50 an hour and at full time with vacation. I waived the medical as I am a veteran and use the VA for my medical. The first few months I noticed I wasn't accruing any vacation or sick time and went to HR twice about it and twice was told everything was fine and I would be getting it. By the 5th month I went to HR again as I still had no sick leave or paid leave on the books and they told me they "accidently" had me listed as per diem, not full time. I was then changed to full time and my pay was cut to $36.66 an hr and it stayed like that for the 4 years I've been there until the small raise given last month that the state gave everyone. So my original negotiation was breached.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Loma Linda University Medical Center in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by 3 people: floor manager, staff nurse, and HR recruiter. Their questions all have to do with specific experiences that you've had and what the outcomes was. They want a clear beginning, middle, and end - being clear to point out what YOU did as an interventions. Some of the questions are tricky - especially if you can't think of a story right off the bat that fits the situation.
