Nursing Positions Interview

Nursing Positions

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Sparrow Health System in May 2012.

Interview Details – I initially applied through the nurse residency program. However, according to the recruiter those positions were already filled up, so they were just interviewing people for future nursing positions.

I originally sent my application in March. I did not hear back until late April. I was then instructed to go online to take a 60 question personality test (ex: I agree, somewhat agree, disagree). After that, I was invited for an interview.

I was interviewed by 2 nurse managers.

I felt that the HR office was very friendly and approachable.
