    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yale-New Haven Hospital (New Haven, CT).

    Interview

    First met with HR on the main campus and spent about 45 minutes speaking with her. Straight-forward questions that you should be able to prepare for. Following that I went and met the program manager and Medical Director for the specialty at the clinic. Everyone was extremely nice and the process was very positive. On my second interview/shadowing I met with the Medical Director again and spend 4 hours shadowing and working with the team. On the third visit, I met with the Directors of the clinic who basically wanted to see that I was a likable and useful person. Each experience was very positive.

    Interview

    Looking for an ED assignment. Advertised job seemed challenging. They were willing to train me for procedures I wasn't familiar with. Only 12 hour shifts available, which was disappointing.

    Easy - moderate difficulty, but nothing surprising. Questions are rather standard. Prepare and you will do well. It all went smoothly. Thankfully no group interviews. Ask to shadow for a day.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yale-New Haven Hospital (New Haven, CT) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I first met with the women I spoke with over the phone to come in. She was very nice, I believe her name was Sara. She asked me the basic questions regarding my experience and general information as to why I wanted to be a surgical tech. I then met with the perioperative nurses. It was first one nurse and then more started comming in (4). I should have been really intimidated but they were so welcoming it was great. They just wanted to get a feel as to what speciality I enjoyed the most. And they asked me about my previous jobs.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

    Interview

    About a week after submitting an online application, I was contacted by YNHH HR and they conducted an initial interview over the phone about my clinical experiences, career plans, etc. I was scheduled for an interview for the critical care internship for new graduate nurses. I got to the hospital with about ten minutes to spare before my scheduled time, but it didn't matter because the manager who was scheduled to meet with me was over a half hour late. He began the interview by asking, "so what do you know about us?" and proceeded to lecture me on the metrics in place to make sure patients are cared for appropriately in as little time as possible. He seemed to know nothing about me as an applicant and did not ask any questions about my experiences, but mostly just talked about their emergency department and explained how it works (I did my capstone in an ED and already knew 90% of what he was telling me about it). I also got the impression that he was trying to intimidate or scare me away by the way he spoke about the metrics and how YNHH is very selective with who they choose as employees, etc. Overall, I was put off by the way the interview was conducted and felt like I was expected to brown nose my way into the position instead of speaking objectively about my own qualities and why I want the position.

    The interview was fair. I interviewed with HR and then the managers on the floor. There were some questions I was prepared for and some I wasn't. Overall, it was a professional and well conducted interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yale-New Haven Hospital (New Haven, CT) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and one month later I received a phone call for an interview. On interview day I was given a personality test that took about a half hour. The HR rep that was to interview me was nowhere to be found as I was told but I remember seeing her when I was taking the test so my guess was that she didn't want to speak to me. So I was taken to the department where I applied to interview. Had a nice long interview with the supervisor who then had me briefly meet the manager. Later that day I was called for a second interview that was scheduled for 2 weeks later. Went to my second interview and met with the Director, nice meeting then they had me meet with the manager of the location that I would work at but she was not a person that I would report too, her problem with me was that I was in still in school and that I would not be able to work the shift that they were hiring about. I assured her that classes were almost over and that I am sure that by the time I was hire and trained that classes would have been completed and ready to work the assigned shift. Two weeks later I received an email stating that they hired someone that meets departmental needs. I was floored, I had 10 years experience that everyone I met liked and I had the education.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yale-New Haven Hospital (New Haven, CT) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online, and knew someone who worked in the hospital who talked to the PSM (patient services manager) and got an interview. Questions included how would you work with coworkers who didn't do their job, what do you think about team work, what are your aspirations. do you want to be a nurse. Then they showed me around the unit. I thought it was very outdated but that people seemed to be friendly.
