    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was initially called by HR, which asked me why I was interested in the position. I then received another call shortly after from HR asking if I'd be interested in interviewing. The interview is set into 3 parts: The day of the interview, I shadowed a social worker in their position first for an hour, then interviewed with a group panel of current social workers at the hospital. Afterwards, I then had a final interview with my direct supervisor and the director of Social Work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in September 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty simple. Applied online, HR phone call, interview with hiring manager, group inteview.
     Applied online then HR contacted me by phone two weeks later asking if I was still interestered. Scheduled an in person interview for a few days later. First interview was with hiring manager (nursing manager of the unit). This interview was super laid back, we talked casually for a few minutes then she asked me about my self and then asked for an example of why I decided to work in health care. She then showed me around the unit and met potential coworkers. Hiring manager explained that they were conducting a few more interviews and she would contact me and let me know about the next phase of the process which is a group interview. 4 days later I was contacted for the group interview. Again, group very friendly and asked scripted behavior based questions and wrote down what I said. Manager said they would be in contact if they wished to proceed. Week later HR called with offer. Then didnt hear from them for 2 weeks. Had to call twice in order to schedule background and drug screen and new employee cultural orientation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online after speaking to nurse manager of department. Talent aquistion called and scheduled phone screening completed. I had interview with manager and charge nurses. When I came for interview, which I confirmed day prior, all had forgotten. They discussed the problems of the unit of which I felt I could assist with change. Offered position when I got home by recruiter. It was not the full time position I was told. They said I would make more but since I said yes, they never inquired to increase it. Started orientation 3 days later. Very rushed orientation and I feel it was just to get a warm, experienced body to work.
