    Interview Details

    All applications are submitted online, HR will contact for an interview. Then, potential candidates interview with the hiring manager of the department they applied to. Hiring managers often just give the highlights and don't share any challenges the department is dealing with--it is helpful to start a conversation with an employee of the department to gauge how a current employee feels about their workplace, they will often share negatives first!

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the July residency program. I received an email the next day from the nurse recruiter requesting more information and asking to set up an interview with me. When I went for the interview there were many other applicants sitting and waiting. We first met up with human resources who just asked us basic questions such as why do we want to work for WHC and a little about our background. Once we were done we met up in True auditorium and waited until a manager picked up our resume and came over to do a second interview. In this interview there were more clinical type questions asked (what would you do if....what labs would you expect the doctor to order etc). Sometimes the manager may ask you if you would like to shadow for a day...if they are interested then you should receive an offer letter via email from your nursing recruiter.

    The interview process was fairly straightforward and simple.

By the end of the day I was contacted with an offer. Once my references were checked, I received my official offer letter.
