Registered Nurse Interview

Registered Nurse

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Interview Details – The interview involved a shadow day followed by a group peer interview by the current unit staff as well as meetings with the department managers and directors. I was interviewing for two different positions within the same department so part of the shadow experience was to determine if one of the positions would be a better fit than another.

Interview Question – Clinical questions were presented in a very broad manner.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call from Human Resources to schedule a phone interview, after the phone interview I was asked to come in for a formal interview.

Interview Question – They asked if I had any experience with their hospital software and said they were looking for someone who had experience with their software. My resume clearly stated what software I had experience in, what a waste of my time and theirs.   View Answer

Practice Manager Interview

Practice Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Interview Details – Applied online, completed phone screen. Then called in for interview with Director, and a 2nd interview with a physician at the practice. I assume I did not get the job; but no one ever followed up and formally rejected me. The same thing happened with someone else I know that interviewed for a different position. They do not let you know if you were not selected, even when you have interviewed in person.
