    Registered Nurse Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Spectrum Health in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    First had a phone interview and then was invited for an in person interview, but could not make it. The phone interview was very straightforward and the recruiter was very nice. It was my first ever interview for a career position and I felt relatively comfortable during the interview, but I was glad that beforehand I reviewed some interview questions for practice.

    Nursing Technician Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Spectrum Health in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this job in April of 2014, but was never contacted, so I figured they didn't even consider me for the position. Out of the blue though, in July of 2014 HR emailed me and asked if I would be available to do a phone interview. I gave her a time and she called me the next day. It literally took about 15-20 minutes, which was short from previous phone interviews I have done. She emailed me a few days later and recommended me to the head nurse in the dempartment the position was for. The head nurse emailed me and I believe we talked on the phone to set up an in person interview. The face to face interview literally took only 20 minutes, which did make me nervous. Other than that though it seemed to go extremely well. The basic interview questions were asked. Be prepared to be asked what your long term goals are and where you see yourself in 5 or 10 years. Have your answers ready before the interview. You want to come off as confident. Then, 5 days later(due to the holiday and what not) HR called me and offered me the position. I am ecstatic!

    Mobile/Web Developer Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Spectrum Health.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and set up a phone screen. The initial phone screen was pretty straight forward and asked about my background, interests, future plans, etc. After the phone screen I was contacted within a few days to setup an in-person interview. This first in-person interview was to test my technical background. They asked some basic JavaScript questions and also some logic questions. Nothing too difficult. After that, I was contacted once more to set-up a final in-person interview which was more of a job shadow. This was an all-day meet and greet with the different project teams. Everyone was nice and asked me questions about myself and also gave me opportunities to ask about their work.

    I had my leadership rotation on the same unit I was hired. I applied through the nurse recruiter, was given an interview with her, followed by an interview with the unit managers.

    The hiring process is what you would expect. A long HR process followed by multiple interviews and weeks of waiting for an answer. This is not a a slam: this is the typical employer-employee process you will find in most organizations of this size.
