    Interview Questions

    • Why Cooks?   Answer Question
    • Tell us about a time when there was a miscommunication between you and someone else at work (Co-worker, physician, patient, etc) and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had heard that there isn't any negotiating...you basically take the offer or leave it. The pay was more than I'm currently making and it was the schedule I wanted; so I didn't need to bargain.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System.

    Interview

    You apply online and write an APA formatted essay. They pick candidates to interview based on a point system from your application and essay. The in person interview is difficult but wonderful! Very inviting staff, you desire to become one of them when you're in the hospital. You have about 8-10 behavior based questions and then a verbal case study. Then you will have a tour of the hospital with a current resident.

I don't know how they do their Hr but it doesn't seem very organized.

    Nurse Resident Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System (Fort Worth, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Application consists of 2 recommendations from clinical instructors, essay, transcript and resume. After the application due date, they are timely in requesting you for interviews. Interviews are only one week to choose from which made it difficult for me but I understand their reasoning. The interview consisted on about 10 behavioral questions. None of which I have had before, but not impossible. Afterward, they give you a case study with about 5 questions. Review pediatric diseases and common medications. My interview consisted of 3 people, one was a unit educator and one was a current resident. The week after interviews they start giving offers over the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • Give a time when you had to think of a creative solution and how did you carry out that solution?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cook Children's Health Care System (Fort Worth, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview panel. Went in and had Administrator and Director interview me for position for Manager. Was not hard questions just wasn't really expecting a panel interview for supervisor position. I guess this eliminated having two different interviews by doing it this way.
