    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Applied online and uploaded my resume. The hiring manager and HR reviewed my resume. I was interviewed first by HR as part of the screening process and at a later date by my future manager. It was a typical interviewing process with standard questions and procedures.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    HR will call you and set up the interview. Mine was a 3-on-1 interview with 2 Department managers and 1 Unit Coordinator. Once the interview was over, I was sent on my way. They said I would hear back in 1-2 weeks as they were interviewing other applicants, but I ended up hearing by the end of the day that I received the job. HR was a quick and easy process once accepting the position.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about the companies mission statement and why I wanted to work for KU Med   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was unaware that I was able to negotiate, and wish I would have (it was my first job out of college), so I am unsure.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center (Kansas City, MO) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Online application process. KEEP Applying. You will get many automated responses, but if you keep applying you will eventually be called. Took about 3-4 weeks of applying for every position that popped up for this position title. Don't worry about the unit, just get your foot in the door. Called to set up an interview for the next week. Within two days of interview (weekend included) I was called and offered a job. Drug test the next day, be prepared to drop everything and get it done as you have a 24hour deadline to do it. A physical exam and vaccinations follow. Somewhere in there HR completes a background check.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview with floor nurse was great. No difficult questions. What would you do if a co-worker was upset. What do you think is the most important aspect of patient care.....yada yada yada...   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiating. They offer, tell you the process and wages and you accept or decline. At this level of the profession this is typical.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center (Shawnee Mission, KS) in September 2012.

    Interview

    HR calls to schedule both the HR screening & group interview at the same time. The HR screening is a straight rehash of resume experience, education, & skills. No actually screening since in person interview was already scheduled. The in person interview was explained to be one on one, but was performed by a group. We walked by several available conference rooms and into a small cramped office. The first question was 'Are you sure you are still interested in this job', which caught me off guard. As the interview proceeded, it was clear the director did not know much about the position but continued to ask questions like 'Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with someone at work' & 'Tell me about a time when you took an active leadership role on a project'. Not so much of a team interview as a director asking standard questions and everyone else agreeing with them. No reference to the actually job or job description provided.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a hidden requirement that didn't come up until the in person interview. It was not in the job description or either of the HR calls, and it was a deal breaker. 'Do you have experience with the semi-proprietary software Epic/O2?'   Answer Question
