    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Surgical Care Affiliates in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was initially interviewed as a fill in for the orderly position. I was interviewed by the surgery department manager, who was very clear on the details and seriousness of the position. She informed me that a busy surgical center works as a team, and I may work as a "float" to ensure that there is help in all departments. I was asked about my basic safety knowledge and also if I had a strong stomach, as surgery can be a little gruesome. She also informed me that I would have to go through necessary training and meetings so that I was prepared, qualified and knowledgeable to do my job correctly.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Surgical Care Affiliates in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I sent an email directly to the director of nursing and expressed my interest in a RN position. She offered to meet with me in person to discuss my qualifications and the details of the job position, tour of surgical center. She seemed to like me and want to give me an opportunity to learn since even though I was a new greaduate. I had to comeback for a second interview with the regional manager and perform a background check. It was a process of paper pushing but as soon as she gave me an offer and made sure to follow-up with her in the process to remind her how highly interested I was. I believe that it is still about "who you know" and how well you'l mesh with the team. Having the licenses, certifications, education and related skills ofcourse gives you the opportunity to step into the door but your attitude, persona, and first impressions will determine whether you are going to keep a foot in the door. Make sure you''re not trying so hard to please others by not being yourself and being compensated for what your worth.

    You have to prove yourself as a hardworker who's flexible and confident...some places are more demanding than others. Although this is not acute care, I have spoken with doctors that praise the RNs in an ASC being its an a specialized area where you have to always anticipate emergent situations that require advanced life support. Aside from an RN license and mostly 2+ years in ICU/ER/OR the job also requires certification in both BLS and ACLS at the least.
