    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online with a resume and short "cover letter" to the TJUH website.
    I was contacted (via email) a week later about the two positions I applied for. I was sent a link to a "skills test" that was a mandatory step in the process. Once I "passed" the online skills assessment, I would contacted directly by phone to set up interviews for the positions.
    I was contacted by the Nurse Recruiter two days after I submitted my test and we set up a day that I would come to the hospital for my face to face interviews for each department.
    A week later, I was told to come to the Nursing Recruitment office to fill out some paperwork and submit all my relevant documents for the position (state licensure, child abuse clearance, FBI background check, CPR card, etc etc).
    After the paperwork was done I was escorted to my first interview. It was with the Nurse Manager of the department and the Assistant Manager. It was in a small office where I was asked realistic and relevant questions about my work background and how I could / would adapt to working at the TJUH. The interview took about an hour. Both interviewers were friendly and knowledgable about what their department's needs were and what I would be expected to do while employed there.
    I was then sent (with directions) to another building on the campus for my next interview.
    I interviewed with 3 people from the department - the Nurse Manager, and the two Nurse Educators.
    The panel interview was pleasant and very informative. They each asked two or three questions of varying topics. The interview took a little over and hour and I was told I would be contacted by the Nurse Recruitment department if I was an appropriate candidate for the position(s).
    A few days later I was contacted with a job offer from the hospital and the process moved forward without any problems.

    Interview Details

    Hr recruiting is very good and organized. They contact you after you submit online application. You should follow up and confirm your application was accepted.
    The process is very very slow so you must follow up regularly with HR and hiring manager.
