    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shands at the University of Florida.

    Interview

    Apply on UF website. Get call from HR, where they schedule an interview with hospital. Interview. I applied to multiple jobs at UF Health Shands. One interview was actually a group interview with the staff RNs. It was the morning, and it was the end of their 12 hour night shift. I had never heard of a group interview, the RNs looked tired, and they didn't really know what to ask. Awkward...in retrospect, should have made them laugh and just befriended them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shands at the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on line in May. Shands had a freeze that began in June I didn't get called back until july. The whole process takes about a month from the time you get called for an interview until u start. Shands Is great on second chances so tell the truth on your application. If you have a charge tell them because they'll find out anyway. They do both a local and federal background check.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I needed a full time job so I didn't care what the pay was. But I did start at the top pay grade so I'm happy. It's easier to get hired if you know someone already employed here. Or call and find it the hiring manager for the flood you're applying for I've applied since 2005 and this is the first time I got a call back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shands at the University of Florida.

    Interview

    Apply online. Can do a max of 5 applications per day. Get a call and show up for the interview. Interview process is usually 1:1. Just so you know your job responsibilities maybe much much more than they initially tell you that they will be. You have to get a PPD test every year (to check for tuberculosis). When you are offered a job you have to do like 2 days of training.

    Interview Questions

    • My first interview was easy. How many hours can you work? Do you have any experience with medical terminology? A separate interview: Behavioral questions. They use your past behaviour to extrapolate how you will behave in the future.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR calls you and tells you the max they can offer with the degree of experience you have. You don't negotiate with the interviewer. HR calls you later to tell you if you got the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shands at the University of Florida in April 2011.

    Interview

    Contacted by phone for a 5 minute interview with HR, then moved to the in person interview. It was a group interview with 8 men, the interview took place in the basement and in a very small room with just enough space to walk pass them while they were sitting down. They had my resume in hand and one by one they asked me every detail from my resume. Make sure you know all abbreviated hardware and software applications and how you used them. Interview lasted 5 minutes.
