Interview Question – How do you handle conflict Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Seattle Children's.

Do not negotiate with him alone-- include Chair of Dept of UW Pediatrics for your cover.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Seattle Children's.
Interview Details – Did not have a phone interview. I was called for an in-person interview. It was very laid back and casual. They said they will inform me if I am selected for the next round. Haven't heard from since then.
Interview Question – Questions were very casual and related to my past work experience Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Seattle Children's.
Interview Details – After applying, I received a phone call from HR to schedule an interview. The first part was a peer-interview, where I met 5 current RNs and the unit educator and they asked me fairly standard interview questions. This was intimidating, but overall beneficial because I could get a sense right away if I would enjoy working on the unit. After the 45 minute peer interview, I had a one-on-one interview with the unit manager, who explained more of what the position entails and asked me more standard interview questions. I then waited for about a week before receiving a phone call with a job offer.
Interview Question – Most of the questions were very basic interview questions. During the peer interview I was asked, "what would you do if a family complained to you about another nurse?", and also "tell me about a time you were involved in a conflict with a peer and how did you handle it?". Those types of questions were expected, but can be difficult to answer if you don't have a specific experience in mind to talk about. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Seattle Children's in September 2012.
Interview Details – I first had a phone interview with one of the recruiters then I was invited to a group/panel style interview that lasted about an hour. After this process I was called in to do a 1:1 with each person I would be supporting. Nice people, committed to the hospital's mission. The environment is really positive and the people are genuine.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Seattle Children's in March 2011.
Interview Details – I interviewed first with the hiring manager. It was a very informative interview for me, while the discussion offered excellent opportunities for me to discuss my qualifications and how I could benefit the organization. A week later I was invited back for a group interview with the team. This was a STAR style behavioral interview. The team did a great job of questioning me on how I might work with them and what experiences I have that would benefit their department.
Interview Question – What was the most difficult coaching experience you had involving a negative behavior? Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Seattle Children's in June 2011.
Interview Details – Manager wasn't even present for the interview. The two girls who interviewed me were younger and seemed nice enough. They said they would make a decision in a week but then NEVER called me again. I left a VM to follow up and still never got a call back. I was a intern at another unit at Children's and to not even get a stock rejection email or letter is completely unprofessional (and hurtful) in my opinion. The interview itself was pretty easy (name a time you made a mistake and what did you do to fix it, etc.). I just don't appreciate at all that they never bothered to let me know that I didn't get the job, especially since I actually turned down another job offer just so I could interview there. Overall I was disappointed in the way this was handled.
Interview Question – Name a situation where you made a mistake at work. How did you fix it. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Seattle Children's in May 2010.
Interview Details – The first round interview was with the direct supervisor. I was able to get a broad description of the job and a understanding of the department's values and work environment. The second round of interviews were with the Director, other Admin (sharing the office) and the 2 managers I would be supporting. I got a greater understanding of the day to day activity, the group dynamic and the culture.
