    Clinical Nurse I Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Maryland Medical Center.

    Interview

    typical interview, with share time. Interview with HR and Unit Manager. Some of the nurse recruiters are slow and lose things, but most were great. HR asks the typical questions. Management wants to figure out why you're really there and how long you might stay. I like to think they were trying to see if you're a good fit, but in retrospect they may just be seeking competent people that wont call out, so they can fill spots.

    Interview

    Completed app online, received an email 2 days later for an interview. The recruiter had me complete a behavioral online test and phone interview. I emailed her the phone interview questions. Then i was scheduled for an in person interview. In person interview for a completely different job title, which was a waste of my time. The hiring manager interview was informal, rushing through questions & talking about herself & qualifications. Seems like it was just a process to meet a quota, but they already had someone picked out for the position.

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Maryland Medical Center.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took about a month or so to hear back. Rec'd an email for scheduling a phone interview with someone in HR. Phone interview was straightforward. Then rec'd an email to schedule an interview with the hiring department. Scheduled quickly. Day of - waited in lobby while associate was paged and came down to get me. Was suppose to interview with head of project, but he was running late. Other people in the office tried to keep me occupied until he returned. Very friendly. Head came in finally. Not the friendliest guy, but interview went smoothly. Then interviewed with associates. Interview was straightforward. Was mainly asked about my personal background, education, and past experience.

    Clinical Documentaton Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glen Burnie, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at University of Maryland Medical Center (Glen Burnie, MD) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed at the BWMC site. The main interviewer was a contractor. I felt there was a conflict of interest in that contractors income depends on continued need for their services. She appeared to have the need to be the most knowledgeable on all topics as opposed to building a team of people with differing strengths and weaknesses to synergistically learn from one another. I enjoy participating in synergistic teams. At one point there was an emphasis on clinical checklist which might be advantageous to new nurses less applicable once one develops the critical thinking skills to look at the big picture. This was not a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Change of work environment questions. There seemed to be the assumption that one needed to come from a like facility to be able to adapt to the workflow at this facility.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at University of Maryland Medical Center (Baltimore, MD) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted about the position many months after applying. The interview process took many weeks and was exhasutive with over 12 high level in-person interviews, as well as phone screenings. Everyone was pleasant and but they could not decide. My opinion is that there is a reluctance to hire from outside the industry with a very strong preference for internal candidates (great for current employees)! Seems like a very interesting place to work with advancement opportunity from within.
