    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ochsner Health System in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was good, people pleasant and knowledgeable. The info was misleading as to length of orientation pay and shift. The hospital hires both new grads and experiences nurses and is big on continued education. The benefits are good but expensive

    Reasons for Declining

    hired for nights but told that after two weeks I would have to work days

    Must complete a behavioral interview questionnaire online at the time of application submission. Phone interview with senior recruiter manager, with focus on your experience/walking through resume. Wasn't given too much info on position during interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Seemed as if they we're looking for a token minority. Interview process seemed more of an open-letter as to why the company is not racist as people claim, rather than an offer for employment.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ochsner Health System in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I began volunteering at Ochsner and was able to become close with managers who referred me to my current position. I applied and they called me in for an interview with the manager over that position. I heard back quickly and was sent a packet of information to fill out for a background check and information for Employee Health for a drug test, a TB test, and flu shot.

    Interview Questions
    • Because I lacked experience, it was a little difficult answering questions they had about how I handled certain situations in the past. I had to pull from my education background and experiences.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    HR called me and made an offer. I asked if they would be able to pay more, they said that she would need to see what they could do. She called back a couple of days later and was unable to offer more.

    There is no salary negotiation. There are plenty of applicants that they can chose from that would do this job. (Make more than the ED techs and Nurse techs) Well paid for what we do.

    Appointment Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baton Rouge, LA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baton Rouge, LA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Ochsner Health System in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    About two weeks after I submitted my resume I was contacted for an interview. My interview was the next day. I was unofficially offered the position then, but I was told I had to wait for HR to contact me. HR contaced me about 3 weeks later and offered me the position. My first day was scheduled for two weeks away. The hiring process has been very interesting. I have been employed for several weeks, but my manager has yet to get me trained with the computer system so I can do my new job. I have been watching my co-workers and training with them as best I can. I have not really been given much guidance on my work schedule (as the different departments I am moved to work on different schedules), my uniform (another thing I am waiting to be decided on), where I will work, and several other things. It seems this is a very disorganized company.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to come to work for Ochsner?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It took about 3 weeks after my interview before I was called for an offer. The offer came from HR in New Orleans, not from the Baton Rouge office. They would not negotiate my pay rate with me, even though I left a job making $2 more per hour.
