    RN2 Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    HR was horrible about returning phone calls and providing accurate information. If you are interested in a job at the hospitals I would suggest that you call the person in charge of the unit that you want to work on. They seem to push HR to get things done.? I was told my the nurse manager that HR had not given her my resume even though I submitted it 3 weeks prior to speaking with her

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was very low and was given only 0.35 more cents when I tried negotiating. The hiring process too long. I applied at another area hospital and Was brought in for an interview 2 days after completing my online application. I offered the same position and offered $5.50 more and hour. The answer for me was simple

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Inova (Waldorf, MD) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Before even getting to ANY interview at all, I was asked to take a 30-min. "Online Personality Test". I considered this quite an afront. Not even after 1sdt, 2nd or 3rd interview. But in order to even be considered I have to submit myself to and pass some digitized, algorithmed judgement via a "Personality Test". Maybe if after 2nd or 3rd interview - But before even being considered?!!! Offensive.

    Fundraising Officer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Inova (Falls Church, VA).

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with a series of in-person interviews. Was strung along for each interview even though I was never offered a position. I even met with some very high-level Inova staff.

    It was a lot of time wasted and I only found out I was no longer being considered after I emailed asking what was going on. In the end, little understanding of customer service when it comes to treating job applicants with respect.

    More egregious was being asked the question about my schmoozing abilities (see below). Development work is minimized to being a paid "schmoozer" apparently...

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Inova (Fairfax, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and heard a couple weeks later by email from a recruiter. We had to reschedule the phone interview a couple times, but she was very nice. I got an in-person interview the next day, didn't feel nervous and got the job ! Realized its not compatible with my schedule and it had rotating shifts so i had to decline.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Inova.

    Interview

    While there are as many different possible interview questions as there are interviewers, it always helps to be ready for anything. Which is why we've taken the time to prepare this list of 100 potential interview questions.

    Will you face them all? We pray no interviewer would be that cruel.

    Will you face a few? Probably.

    Clinical Technician I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Inova (Fair Oaks, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a recruiter, it took about two day after I turned in the application. They confirmed that you are aware of the time and type of position. Clinical tech is not a walk in the park, you are on your feet and working your whole shift. She confirmed the pay and checked to see if you had another position you were interested in and then told me she would send my resume and application on to the hiring manager. Within a few hours that same day I received a call from the hiring manager who runs the medical unit. She checks to see why you want to work as a clinical tech and why you want to work in their unit. They also make sure you are committing to working at least 1-2 years. Then I scheduled and interview for the very next morning. It was a panel interview with one of the nurse supervisors and the unit secretary as well as the hiring manager. I also got a tour of the unit and talked with a new hire tech who answered all my questions about the job and expectations.

    They will hire people with no medical experince, if you desire to pursue nursing or go into medicine it helps your odds a lot. You don't need a degree but again it helps to have some college course under your belt.

    Interview Questions

    • It's a behavioral interview, you are told to think of specific situations. If you have not worked medical it makes it a little bit harder but lots of jobs have carry over situtions.
      Give a time when you had a difficult patient and how you handled tha situation?

      Give a situation when you had limited resources how did you handle the situation?

      Explain a program/ process you implemented to inmporve your work enviornment?

      Explain a time when you have a coworker who was not doing their job, how did you handle it?

      Explain a time when you had to advocate for a patient?

      Explain your leadership roles.
