    Clinical Nurse Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke University Health System (Durham, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    My interview took place in four phases, each lasting approximately one hour. For the first round, I interviewed with the current managers of the department for which I was applying. The second round consisted of 4 other employees with the same job title and description as me. Of course, this was the more relaxed yet most important phase, as they are experts in their fields and would be able to provide very valuable feedback at the completion of the interview process. The third phase included the two directors that I would be working alongside. Lastly, I met with the ACNO.

    Health Center Administrator/Practice Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knightdale, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Duke University Health System (Knightdale, NC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    There is a first for everything and this was a first for me. 1 phone interview and then 5 interviews with a total of 18 people for a HCA/Practice Manager position. You would think I was interviewing for a CEO, CFO, COO, VP position, not a lonely HCA/Practice Manager position. These people do overkill to the max. These people over think everything. I didn't get the position which was a surprise to me because I had more experience and education then 90 percent of the people that interviewed me including the person who would have supervised me. I didn't pay attention to the red flags when I applied for the position so I blame my self for the money and time I lost during the process. The job had been open for almost 6 months and that is a red flag that these people have a hard time making small decisions when it comes to hiring. My experience tell me they micro manage the hell out of you as a employee. Do your research before using up time and money on Duke Health. They had me drive to 3 sites in one day which was over 80 miles of driving for a interview. Durham, Knightdale, Raleigh locations and they knew I had to drive in from out of town just for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • How well you get alone with others. Huh, I was a social worker for 7 years, a Practice Manager for 15 years and have been in departments when I had to supervise up to 30 people. Really that's the type of questions you ask me.   4 Answers
