    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Duke University Health System (Durham, NC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview only lasted about 20 minutes - very short. We talked about leadership, teamwork, and future goals. It was somewhat casual with some typical interview topics sprinkled in. There were several opportunities to pose questions about the unit, and she was happy to speak about both positive and negatives of the unit.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Duke University Health System.

    Interview

    I applied while a student at Duke. They informed us when the job posting would be released. It was closed rather quickly. This was one of the years when it was hard for new grad RNs to find work. I interviewed first with the manager, then had a peer interview. I think it took almost a month.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't surprised by questions. Maybe just about my skills, as I didn't know what they were looking for specifically.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Duke University Health System (Raleigh, NC) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I went to the hospital in person to speak with a recruiter but a receptinist at HR stated that I had to submit my resume on line first. Since I was employee in the past, it would be a rehire, and I already knew people in management. There was no openingpositions available on line for medical surgical RN at the time of my interview. I went to see the manager for surgical floor but she was not in her office. I run into a clinical specialist, and he set an interview date with a medical floor manager for me. Three days later, I went in, had an interview with a medical floor manager (clinical specialist present in the room) and was offered an job. For the technicality, I still had to apply my resume on line. One of the nurses was retiring in a month, and I became her replacement.

    Interview Questions

    • The manager at the time asked me, knowing that I used to work for Duke Raleigh, what I would change about the work place.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate at the time of hire but asked if I could have a weekend position (one of the weekend option nurses left) after working for a year. It was finally granted 9 months later.
