    New Graduate RN Residency Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

    Interview

    This was one of the strangest interviews I have ever been on. I came in 30 minutes before my scheduled interviewer, and they were already looking for me in the hallways asking if I had arrived. I was greeted by two people for the interview, and they began the interview right away. One individual did all of the talking and interviewing. While I was answering one of the questions that he had asked me, the interviewer pulled out his cellphone and talked on the phone. The other individual seemed disinterested since even before the interview started. She shook my hands at our greeting very flimsily, no grip at all. I was highly concerned for her to the point that I wanted to ask if everything was alright. It must have been an off day for these two individuals.

    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.

    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.
