    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Seattle Children's.

    Interview Details

    Brief phone interview with only general questions. Upon learning about my experience as an undergraduate in a plant biology lab they asked if I knew anything about human biology. despite my repeated assurances that i was well versed in human biology, from that point on they seemed unhappy with my answers. It also seemed like the phone interview was the first time they were actually looking at my resume.

    Was in the system at SCRI as an intern and applied internally. Process was done in less than a week; drug test was required within 10-14 days or so of accepting job offer. Helps if you have someone you know already in the system to refer you - networking is highly recommended.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.
