    Transporter Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Reading Health System in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview for a transporter position. I met with a woman from HR for most of it and she was very nice and easy to talk to. It was a basic interview where they ask strengths and weaknesses and go over details of the job. I was very nervous at first but the woman was nice and very helpful which made me relax a lot more.

    Reasons for Declining

    I really appreciated the offer but then realized I wanted something full time (this was part time) and my boyfriend wanted me to live with him (an hour away) so I chose not to take it.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Reading Health System in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Expect to be there for 3+ hours for an interview. It is done in phases that alternate between unit managers and HR. The woman from HR was really nice and had a lot of information to share. The interview with the unit manager was a bit awkward. She didn't seem prepared, didn't have her "paper with the official interview questions", and seemed in a hurry. We had about a 15 minute chat, then she sent me back to HR where I sat for 45 minutes until I was seen by the HR woman again.

    They did offer to let me shadow one of their nurses before accepting an offer, which I found interesting, and had I been interested in the job after that interview, I would have done it.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was significantly lower than my current position, when they saw my resume and what I get paid, they flat out said "That's you're base pay? We can't compete with that." I found it off putting that such a large hospital pays their nurses so little compared to other nearby hospital systems.

    I applied for and told HR that I was only interested in per diem positions, yet they had me interview for full/part time positions. They offered me a part time position working 24/hrs a week when I already have a position at another hospital working 32 hr/week that I made clear I did not want to leave.
