    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Colorado Hospital (Aurora, CO).

    Interview

    There were two interviews. After being called in and completing a short pre-test (questions pertain to the knowledge a CNA should have), there was an interview with a recruiter. If all went well, another interview would be scheduled with the nurse manager of a department. Basic interview questions were asked, along with situational ones--how would you, as a CNA, respond to such and such situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at University of Colorado Hospital (Aurora, CO) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Interview was in Skype and was about an hour in length. There were interviewers and asked probably 20-25 questions and pertained to the job description. Some of the questions seemed to go out side the internet job description. H/R seemed to distract in the whole process. I sent a thank you email and was told at that time I was a good candidate.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer came down with out even meeting the managers or the facility on site. I asked multiple times for some sort of relocation assistance with out response until the counter offer letter. Did not meet wage or relocation requirements. Declined

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Colorado Hospital (Loveland, CO) in March 2012.

    Interview

    None experienced applicants are hired before interdepartmental employees are given the job. Always have openings in this department since they lose employees every month due to transfers or quitting. Many new hires have no experience and that possibly is what management wants so you can be overworked beyond your job description and you wouldn't know any better.
