OR Technician Interview

OR Technician

I applied online and interviewed at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Interview Details – It was horrible. The questions asked you would think you are going to be employed with FBI. Every interview is different these questions are asked randomly from different categories. Depending on how you answer will determine if you go to the next step. YOU HAVE TO SOMETIMES CALL TO FIND OUT IF YOU GOT THE JOB! THEY ARE SO SLOW IN GETTING BACK TO YOU.

Interviewed at New York Presbyterian Hospital

Interview Details – I was asked to fill out an application for Lab Tech position in the hematology department. Then I had an interview with the HR department which was fairly short, followed by interview with two hiring managers of the core laboratory. The whole process took about 2 hours which felt really long. They asked about preferences for shifts and departments, informed me about the rules and regulations and gave a tour of the core lab.

Interview Question – Asked to do 5 differential slides (all abnormals). I was not expecting that.   Answer Question

Interface Analyst Interview

Interface Analyst

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Interview Details – Took me about 6 interviews to transfer between groups at the same hospital after over 5 years of working for this hospital.
At some point, I've heard that one of the manager regretted that I didn't have a chance to be interviewed by more people. Isn't 6 interviews enough to see if a person is fit? Did anyone has to break me to a point that I just submit my whole life to the hospital?

Interview Question – I knew I was appying to an internal position I had no experience in. I took every effort to learn what I could. There were no difficult quesitons, since it was clear I was not experienced in this field. I was asked questions that would show if I really took the effort to learn.   View Answer

Clinical Nurse Interview

Clinical Nurse
New York, NY

I applied online and interviewed at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Interview Details – I' have interviewed for 2 positions at this company and both processes were pretty straightforward. My initial hire into the organization involved meeting with HR and the Nurse Manager of the unit. Upon receiving an offer you need to pass a very difficult pharmacology test in order to be hired. For my 2 job I just interviewed with the Nurse Manager because I was an internal candidate.

Interview Question – I can't remember a difficult or unexpected question, everything was pretty straight forward in both the interviews I've since being employed by this company.   Answer Question
