    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Charlottesville, VA

    I worked at University of Virginia Health System full-time (more than a year)


    - Very supportive of new graduate nurses, gives plenty of support through the transition from student to nurse
    - Pay was comparable to other hospitals in the region
    - Nurses had a strong leadership / voice on my unit
    - Very visible management (including the executive officers)
    - Felt appreciated for the work I did, by both unit management and executive management


    - Staffing; it's an issue at most hospitals without ratios but we were frequently understaffed
    - Difficult to take breaks (goes back to staffing)
    - HIGH turn over rate for newer nurses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Increase staffing and nursing satisfaction/ retention will go up.

    Positive Outlook

    Access Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of Virginia Health System in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview for this position is just like all of the other access associate positions. I have been on a few of them and they ask the same questions. I met with my supervisor and the manager.
    They give you an overview of the position and then ask you questions.

    Good and bad excuses for being late?
    How to organize your work?
    What are your career goals?
    When was the last time you were late to work and why?
    Do you like working in a team?
    What would you do if a coworker doesn't pull their own weight?

    If they ask you if your supervisor knows you're looking and you tell them you did not tell them, it will be the "kiss of death". You will be rejected.

    I got a call from HR exactly a week after my interview. You have 48 hrs to accept or reject the offer if you get one. Make sure you negotiate because they will definitely lowball you. They want top notch people for cheap.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation since I'm an internal candidate. I took a pay cut for this position because I am tired of being at my current job.
