    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advocate Health Care (Oak Lawn, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process overall went very well. This being my first interview as a new graduate nurse. I had two separate phone interviews with some managers from the HR department. After having those two interviews over the phone, I was scheduled for an in-person interview with the nurse manager. However, she had opted to skip the interview with just her, instead of having me come back again to have a peer interview. Therefore, my in-person interview was with the nurse manager and two other members of management.

    Interview Questions

    • Other than the normal "get to know you" interview questions, I was asked a number of scenario question. Some pertaining to patient care and others pertaining to how I handle certain situations. One question that was asked was what would I do if I walked into a patient's room and found them unconscious. Another question I was asked, was tell me the steps to giving a certain type of medication.   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advocate Health Care (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    It takes too long to get an interview or know where you are in the hiring process. Having a corporate filtration system with the hiring process isn't beneficial to know who would be a good fit for the position and the team they would be working with.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Advocate Health Care (Downers Grove, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Embarrassingly short, curt and unprofessional. This organization was unprepared when speaking with me, did not have a grasp of the job they were hiring for, did not understand the marketplace and when asked to clarify items in our discussion, I was told, point blank, "We are Advocate, we do things our way."

    Interview Questions
