    Pharmacy Technician - Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Scripps Health.

    Interview Details

    Went during Interview event. Applied online and waited until it was my turn. Bring your certification and license. They can get it later but it looks better if you have it. Hand them your resume right when you see the interviewer. They will ask questions about yourself. I didn't have any experience but she liked my personality and that I was a people person. Then they told me only the graveyard shifts were available. I guess I couldn't hold my expression so they basically told me I wasn't the right fit and they were right. Late hours just were not do-able for me. They were really nice. Didn't get an offer but my confidence entering the working force wasn't effected.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Scripps Health.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got contacted by e-mail in about a month by the prospective supervisor to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview lasted for about 15 minutes, he didn't ask much questions, just told that I seemed to be a good fit for this position and asked some questions about my availability and visa situations. The same day got a e-mail from him inviting for the on-site interview. I was asked to prepare a talk about my previous research. The on-site interview lasted for about 2-3 hours, including the talk + questions/discussions, then individual communication with different people in a group, and a lunch.

    Negotiation Details
    There was not much to negotiate, as the position was payed by a grant and had a fixed salary.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Scripps Health.

    Interview Details

    They have a hiring fair at Scripps Mercy where you get the chance to interview for two hospitals. You go in the morning dressed and ready with copies of your resume and they choose what unit you will be interviewing with. You then interview with the little manager of that particular unit. A bad manager will just read off the piece of paper and not be spontaneous in asking questions which is the manager I got. Very bad! The second manager was awesome, from Mercy Hospital, very experienced and comfortable interviewing and asking questions of first person accounts of what I've done and how I handled situations. Totally aced it! Wish to God I had gone with Mercy instead of La Jolla Green!

    Interview Questions
    • I got a total BS question. what do you think is the biggest issue facing nursing today?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None. You just take what they give you and they tell you its the best. Its not.

    Very basic, they attempt to tell you how awesome their company is and how they are top ranked. They will feed you good the first day to attempt to impress you. Anyone that knows hospitals knows they are no where near the top of the competition .

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Scripps Health in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was prepared to answer the standard questions, like "tell me about yourself", "Why did you choose this profession?" But he didn't ask very many questions, and they were mostly open-ended behavioral/situational. "Tell me about a recent success. Why were you successful?" "What would be your ideal job/work environment?" "Tell me about a time, professionally, when you had to be flexible to complete a task/goal..."

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Scripps Health in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    When meeting with Jenny, I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly she was. Her office was warm and inviting filled with pictures of her handsome son. She shook my hand immediately and made note of my interview notebook. When she began the interview process, her tone immediately calmed my nervous energy. The interview felt like I was talking with an old friend that I was catching up with. Although this was a temporary job, she treated the interview as though I was going to be a permanent employee and an integral asset to her team.

    You will be assigned an HR recruiter. Depending on the position, the pay grade and what your initial off is, there is usually room for negotiation. However, some positions have a set salary, and that salary is non-negotiable...take it or leave it.
