They felt i was z better fit for z different position so i had more interviews than average. They made me feel comfortable. Outside of the multiple visits to the facility it was an interesting experience

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ochsner Health System (New Orleans, LA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Pre-screen, then three rounds of face to face. Round one was disappointing, only a few people participated. Second face to face was with more folks and third would have been with HR Leadership. Feels like a ton of interviews to make a decision. Salary is not discussed and Ochsner is known for low pay.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ochsner Health System (Baton Rouge, LA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call for the position to come in and interview. I asked a brief information about what they were looking for, and the schedule I was told that it was Monday - Friday, 3-11pm. Which I was looking for. However when I got into the interview I was told that the rotate weekends. Since they were not initially honest about the hours I waited until the job shadow and asked the worker I was shadowing then I was informed that you work two weekends out if the month which was not what the supervisor made it seem like. Then I was informed they work holidays.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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
