    Interview Details

    After applying on the Children's Hospital website, they contact you by phone to schedule an in person appointment. The interview is with two people and they ask you to first describe yourself and your background related to the job. Both interviewers had a paper with a bunch of questions that they can draw from to ask you. They asked questions like what was a goal you made and what you have done to achieve it and your availability if you are hired. There were a lot of scenario questions where they ask you what you would do when talking to a parent or patient who has called down from the patient room requesting certain menu items such as a parent requesting grapes for their child, but grapes are considered a choking hazard and not offered for the child. Another scenario was asking what you would do if lactose intolerant patient called down for scrambled eggs but the system showed that the eggs from the kitchen contain dairy. After these scenario question, they ask if you have further questions for them.
