    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Norton Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    While Norton is a really popular job choice for the region, it also makes it quite difficult to secure an interview (even with a great resume). There are just so many applicants that it can be difficult to get noticed. If you happen to know someone who can put in a good word with a manger to draw attention to your application, that is a huge plus. It's a big company so there are a lot of steps and hoops to get hired. I think the two keys are to A. know someone (maybe volunteer just to get your foot in the door) and to B. be vigilant about contacting HR once an application has been submitted. Obviously don't harass them, but if you don't hear something when you think you should (use good judgement) contact someone. They need to know you really want a job with Norton. That's just been my experience and the experience of others I have spoken to.

    Interview Questions
    • The most challenging interview question I got was regarding time management. This particular manager wanted a specific example of when I had needed more time, what I did to get/not get my responsibilities completed, and how it turned out. She asked the question and I had to recall something on the spot. It was really challenging because when does a PCA/nurse NOT have a time crunch and require some rearranging to get every thing done? That's like, a requirement of the job. So the request to recall one specific incident really threw me off.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As a new PCA and new nurse, I didn't really try to negotiate terms such as pay. Norton seems to have a pretty standard starting rate for non-experienced employees. The good thing is their rates and benefits are very competitive within the region, so most new-grads are pretty excited about the starting rates and benefits. The only thing I negotiated a bit with was scheduling. Because it is such a large company, there are so many positions that it didn't seem too difficult to ask if I could have days or nights or other scheduling requests. The hardest thing to negotiate (so I've heard) is if you have specific requests related to not working weekends, although that does fluctuate depending on when school is/is not in session. Norton hires lots of students who like to work weekends during the school year. So you may consdier making such a request accordingly.
