I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PinnacleHealth System (Harrisburg, PA) in May 2015.
I applied online and filled out an employment survey. Next, I was contacted for an HR interview with a recruiter. After a few weeks, I met with several managers regarding the position. Then, I sat for a peer interview with folks that I would possibly be working within the department.
- The HR interview focuses on your past professional experiences and what successes and challenges you recognized. My favorite question was on diversity and what it meant to me and what I would teach a class on if given the opportunity. The Managers' interview was a bit more open-ended and free-flowing, they dug in more to my professional experiences and what I would bring to the department. The peer interview was very structured, and each person took turns asking pre-set questions. My favorite was on assertiveness and advocacy, and what those things meant to me as a professional. 1 Answer

I had an excellent advocate in my recruiter and I was easily able to ask for what I needed.
