No Offer – Interviewed in Renton, WA Apr 2011 – Reviewed Jun 15, 2011
Interview Details – The position is for 2 ER residency RN position, which over one hundred applicants. The interview was divided into 2 stages. First stage consists of 4 groups interview. Each group consists of a panel interviewers and 15 interviewees. Interview begin with a personality test, followed by a test for multi-tasking ability (3 pages of 30-40 lines of numbers. Six sets of numbers (3-8 digits) in each line and 2 of the 6 numbers set are identical) you circle the 2 identical numbers. In 10 minutes you circle as much as you can. Next is the essay question. I don’t remember the exact wording but the question is asking what cause the ER to overflow in hospital and how can you address this problem. They give you 10 minutes for the essay. The next part is more questions. They give each interviewee a package (5-7pages) of questions. And ask you to choose 4 number from 7 -20 and write on the front of the packet. You must answer all of the first 7 questions, and 4 more question which ever 4 number you wrote on the front of the packet corresponding to the questions. You have 20 minutes to answer the 10 questions. Most of the questions are open-ended essay question which I believe no one was able to finish all 10 questions. I only remembers a few questions: “Why you want to be ER nurse?” “If you can’t be an ER nurse what is the second choice?” “Why work for Valley?” “How did you deal with a difficulty situation, and if you encounter it second time what would you do?”
