    Patient Care Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NorthShore University HealthSystem.

    Interview Details

    I first met with the Practice Manager for about 30 minutes. We went over general departmental workflows and what my role would be. I then sat with 3 of the current PCT's, which was a bit intimidating, for another 30-40 minutes.

    I got a call a few days later from the Practice Manager saying she would like me to come back in to meet the Physicians. That part of the interview process was very informal. They mostly asked where I was from and what my interests were.

    I got an offer call the next day.

    Interview Questions
    • Before meeting with the practice in person, I had to go to a different location to take a computer test--typing speed, number of mistakes etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They were very firm. The position requires only a High School Diploma and while I have a Bachelors, they were unwilling to raise the base pay.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at NorthShore University HealthSystem.

    Interview Details

    I received an email with a request for a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and covered my clinical experience and why I was choosing Northshore. I was invited for an in person interview at the end of the phone call and later that day received an email with interview times. I had an in person interview the next week and first met with the HR person who interviewed me over the phone and then a second meeting with the nurse managers from the floors I was interviewing for. Most questions were behavioral based "Tell me about a time where..." and they want examples of patient interactions and how you handled those situations. There were several of the basic "strengths and weakness" questions as well.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NorthShore University HealthSystem in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    You get a call from HR to see if you meet the initial qualifications. If you do, HR interviews you. If they like you. your resume and their notes gets passed on to the manager. They most definitely have an internal candidate for most clinical positions, so you sometimes go through all of this when they were only posting because they legally have to.
