I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Health Care System (Chattanooga) (Hixson, TN).
Interviewed with nurse manager after receiving call from human resources to arrange the interview. Very young manager. Same questions and other employers use, nothing original. took two weeks for physical to be scheduled. took two weeks for background check to be returned, other places less than week. No questions regarding skills or certifications. Physical and blood work were the same as at other hospitals, nothing new there.
- for me the most difficult question was a specific incident where I had to deal with a difficult coworker. I found this question difficult because I have the personality type that does not keep score and does not keep up with disagreements. There were very few questions regarding skill or work experience. 1 Answer
There was no negotiation I was told what the company paid nurses with my years of experience, no allowance for certifications.

Submit your online application, which is fairly time consuming especially if you have a resume. I think you should be able to just submit a resume if you have one but you have to fill out several categories! You initially have an interview with the nurse manager and if they decide to send you on to the next step, a peer interview. During the peer interview they ask the same questions the manager asks. Question are like: how did you deal with an unhappy customer in you last job? What are your weaknesses? The people asking these questions are working staff from that day that get pulled to do interview, so they really just want to know if you will fit in with everyone and if you can handle this type of work! We the will give those papers we have to fill out during interview p to our manager and might give our personal opinions too!
- I think they were all pretty standard, I can't recall an extremely difficult question. Just be prepared to answer how you handle difficult people, how do you resolve issues with other staff when there is a problem between you two and have some questions prepared that makes you seem more interested in the position. For example, is there good team work on this floor, how many patients do you have regularly, etc ( on the job type questions ) Answer Question
