- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in January 2014.Interview Details
Initial Communications: The website was fairly easy to use for the application, however, I could not get the job agent to work, so if a job was posted for less than 24 hours, sometimes I missed an opportunity to apply.
Planning: When I was being considered for a position, a recruiter called me and scheduled an interview. Again, everything went quite smoothly with this, and she was very pleasant on the phone.
Number of interviews: There were 3 interviews. One over the phone with a nurse recruiter, which went very well. This interview was mostly questions about whether or not I was even truly eligible to work there (i.e. have you ever been charged with a felony) and then a few behavioral questions. Then, there were 2 in-person interviews with the nurse manager and the manager's assistant. These interviews also went incredibly well. I felt very confident that I had a shot at the position. This is when things went south. After all of the smooth communications, I heard nothing after the interview for 3 weeks and then got an email saying this, "Although we appreciate your interest, we would like to inform you that we've decided to pursue other candidates for this position." I got no feedback at all as to what had caused them to wait 3 weeks to tell me this and was just strung along all that time thinking I might have had a shot. I even called and asked if they could give me feedback, so maybe I wouldn't make the same mistakes again or something, but they refused, saying it was company policy to not do so (understandably I guess, but still incredibly frustrating).
Perception: I felt that Rainbow did a great job with the interview process right up until the end there. The phone interview was great and the in-person manager and assistant interview were also very smooth and comfortable. I just don't understand why they needed to string me along for 3 weeks just to email me and say I didn't get the position. I can't imagine they were interviewing other candidates for 3 weeks after me, but maybe they were. It just would have been nice to know that I didn't get the position sooner, because I would have pushed harder looking for other positions during that period of time.Interview Questions
