Interview Details – The hiring process took about a month. My first interview involved interviewing with Team Manager and another ED Tech at the hospital I would be working at. Questions were very straightforward and basic - no curveballs. "How would your experience help you?" "Are you a good team player?" etc. Interviewer spent more time talking than I did. I was offered to shadow someone in my position a week later to determine if I would like the job. I was then asked to do another interview with two other members of the team I would be closely working with. This is interview was also straightforward. After I was offered the position, post-hire paperwork was required, including a health screening and drug test. Post hire paperwork was complicated and detailed, and including a three day timeline for completion. This included gathering references for review, so have references available beforehand.

Interview Details – I applied on Sentara's website and receive a call shortly after. The interview was scheduled within a week's time. Was interviewed by a panel of 20 people. I did not feel I was being drilled, just needed to present what I could offer. I had a portfolio and researched the company which made the interview run more smoothly. I received a call within a week's time and was offered a part-time position, which I accepted. However, before I even started, a full-time position had opened and I was offered that instead. I was impressed to say the least.

Interview Details –
Recently, I was interviewed for a position with Sentara. The position stated great job for a new college graduate. I qualified for the position and to add to this they are supposed to be one of the #1 companies hiring military spouses..Well I qualify for this as well and also have HR experience! Well I was told that a person with 5 years experience was selected. So what happened to the new graduate and hiring military spouses. I've been trying to get hired with Sentara for about 7 months now and have only received one interview, as I know I'm qualified for these positions. This just shows Sentara really isn't looking for the qualifications stated in the job announcements. If you don't know someone within the organization within a management position, guess what? You don't stand a chance. It's sad but true!
A really aggravated candidate!

Interview Details – I submitted my resume online for a medical assistant position. About a week later I received a phone call from Sentara's education and training representative and she informed me she received my resume and asked basic questions such as what did I wish to earn and on a scale from one to ten what would I rate my customer service skills. Once the telephone interview was complete, she scheduled a 1 on 1 interview with another person in the human resources department, in which I received an email with the time and day and directions to the location. I arrived at that interview the following week and the lady interviewing me was very nice and approachable. She asked me questions such as how much I expected to make, my work experience, if I had experience with patient triage, phlebotomy and injections. The interview lasted only about 10 minutes. Once it was complete, she said she would forward my information to her boss for review and I should here something from them within 3 days. She also gave me a brochure going over Sentara's benefits. Three days passed and I received a phone call from one of Sentara's physician offices. The lady that contacted me had received my information from the human resources department and was very interested in scheduling a 1 on 1 interview. I arrived to this interview the following week. The interview took about an hour and a half, in which she asked me questions, quizzed me on anatomy (pertinent to the area I would be working in) and medical terminology, gave me a scenario involving customer service in which I had to answer two things I would do and two things I would not do, discussed the mandatory 8 week orientation process, and gave me a walk-thru of the clinic. Afterwards, she scheduled me with a final interview with her boss.
