    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Hackensack University Medical Center (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty straight forward. I was actually turned onto the position by a friends but then after that I had two interviews and then went through a standard hiring process. There were some extra hoops to jump through because it was a hospital.

    Clinical Data Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hackensack University Medical Center (Hackensack, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Human Resources will schedule an interview with you and if they're happy with you, the department you're applying to will call you for a follow up interview. I interviewed with the supervisor in the department I applied to (after interviewing with HR) and was told I would have to come in for a third interview to meet with the rest of the team members and directors. Sounded very promising. The wait was longer than I anticipated, it was during the holidays so I guess that contributed. I finally got a call from another supervisor in the same department but for a different role. I was to interview with her so I was asked to do the pre-interview assessment which I had done prior to the first interview with HR. I took it again and was told everything went well and to expect a call for the final interview. Instead I received an email saying despite how impressed they were with me, they had decided on another candidate after waiting for over a month. It took a total of 2+ months from my first interview with HR.

    CNA Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hackensack University Medical Center (Hackensack, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I first got a call from a recruiter who told me the time of my phone interview. So at the date and time I got a call by the HR nurse who interviewed me mostly about my background. Then after the interview she said she'll send my information to the nurse manager in my applied ward, and if she likes me she'll call me. A couple hours later the nurse manager called me and we set up the interview. So I had an interview a few days later and she asked me a few simple questions and she talked to me about the unit. She even gave me a tour and introduced me to some of the employees. I was nervous throughout. After the interview ended, I went home but a few hours later the HR called to ask if I'd accept the job offer... of course! I was hired pretty quick.

    Nursing Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hackensack University Medical Center (Hackensack, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked mostly questions regarding my personal clinical experiences, jobs, why i wanted to work there etc. I met with someone from HR and usually you meet the nursing supervisor the same day but she told me she had no availability today and i would hear back via a call to schedule something. I never did. Eventually they turned me down. I think the interview was just to humor me. They warned me before that the nursing manager does not hire you if you have only 1 semester left which is so unfair because you never know how long someone will work there even if someone is in their first semester. It's not like you graduate and get a RN job the next day,, it takes time. I reiterated this in a follow-up email and even offered to make a commitment if needed but still they turned me down. Especially a hospital like this that values and prefers experience as a pct/cna and I was denied that right.
