    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Did video interview. Took a month to hear back. Got an in person interview. Typical questions. They seemed the same but asked in a different way. A lot in relation to past experiences and giving examples. The interviewer seemed friendly but was sighing a lot in the midst of me answering her questions. Then she proceeded to tell me someone from another state was also interviewing for a position. Long story short, she showed me around the unit. I remained engaged and asked questions but from the beginning I could tell I wasn't getting the job already. We shook hands and that was it.

    Interview Questions

    • What was a situation you wish you could have handled differently and why?   Answer Question
    • What is your strength and weakness?   Answer Question
    • What is a situation in which you had to deal with a difficult patient and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
    • Name a difficult situation with staff   Answer Question
    • Why this position?   Answer Question
    • Why do you want to be a nurse   Answer Question
    • Why chop   Answer Question
    • Most of the other questions required you to find creative ways to answer them because they were literally repetitive. That was the annoying tedious part because she's asking these questions, I'm giving the answers and you can tell when someone already knew before you opened your mouth that it was going nowhere. I just had to smile my way through and be respectful as I could and answer the questions properly with all that I knew how. The first part of the interview was about how the nurse residency program there worked and papers were given for reference as to what was explained. I did my nurses best but if someone doesnt want you, you can tell. Best of luck to all!!   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online. A week later, the recruiter sent me an email to schedule a phone interview. The overall phone interview with the recruiter was nice. She even forwarded my application to other departments that might want me. At the same day, the department I initially applied sent me an email for another phone interview in the coming week. I even checked with them the time twice. However, the interviewer never called me on the scheduled time. I tried to reach out to them 10 minutes after he/she missed the call, but no one answered or replied. 2 days later, I tried to email the interviewer again to see if he/she wants to reschedule the interview, he/she replied that the department decided to go another way with the position without even apology for missing the call or any notice ahead.

    Interview Questions

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Interview

    The HR person interviewed me over the phone and then a manager interviewed me over the phone. The problem was, the HR person told me I was not allowed to start until all my paper work was in but I had a no call no show on the day I was suppose to start. So, a lot of miscommunication but overall an easy experience.
