    New Grad RN Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied online. They offer New Grad Residency program 4 times a year. Make sure you sign up for email job-notifications on their career site, because they stop accepting online applications (usually) after 50 applications. So once the first 50 applications have been submitted online, the job posting closes. The job posting is usually titled: New Grad Program - Registered Nurse I.

    2 rounds of interview. First was a one-way video interview where you record yourself. Second was an in-person interview with the unit-managers and/or nurse educators. Mostly behavioral/scenario based questions.

    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was quite straight forward. As long as you have knowledge of what they are asking for it should be quite simple. They are quite fair and would be willing to retrain you as needed.My only word of caution is that it is sometimes for a specific department. I think I applied to Cedar-Sinai as a whole but ended up getting called by the heart/cardiology department. I sadly didn't know much about cardiology and the interviewer stated that they could retrain me but it would put me far behind and set me up for failure in the future.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Portland, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Over the phone. Interview started with basic details of the recent history of the company. A description of duties was given for the position. Filler because I need to provide 3 words beyond what was a short interview.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in January 2017.

    Interview

    Went well and was asked questions about my availability and flexibility to take on many tasks. I was told I would hear from HR. I emailed and called to follow-up and was never contacted back, not even to say that the position had been filled, when I was specifically told I would be notified. Very frustrating.

    Staff Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online in November, interviewed a couple of weeks later in December. Interview lasted about 45 minutes with would be manager and immediate supervisor. Interview went well and was told I should hear back fairly soon since they were looking to hire someone ASAP. What followed next was 2.5 months of back and forth and excuses and 'delays'. I was constantly told by the HR rep that I was very well received and a top candidate for the position but there were just reconfiguring things within the department but don't worry, you're still in consideration. Then I was asked if I would be open to a temp position (which means no benefits and they can decide to not hire you permanently after miking work out of you for months).

    Finally I received a call from HR informing me that after all that back and forth and building expectations that they went with an internal candidate. From initial interview to final decision was a little over 2 months.
