    New Grad RN Residency Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Clackamas, OR) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First was the application, then an email stating I've been selected and there will be phone interviews done during specific days and times and to keep that time open. The phone interview was roughly ten minutes. Very friendly easy going staff. Then they called the next day to schedule the second interview in person. This interview included seven managers, a director, and an educator. Not all questions were behavioral and the director was very open and friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Clackamas, OR) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in October for the new grad program but didn't hear back till the 2nd week of December. I got an email saying that I was selected for a phone interview. Phone interview lasted for about 15 minutes (4 questions) and I got a call back the next day that I was going in for the second round which was the panel interview (lasted about 45 minutes). Panel interview was with 9 nurse managers from the Medical-Surgical team. The nurse managers were so awesome and nice about the entire process. I've never felt such a welcoming feeling in a nursing interview (and this was with 9 people!!!!!). After my panel interview, I got a call and an email that I got the job the next day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Clackamas, OR) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and did not get a confirmation email back. I attempted to call HR to follow up and was told that I wasn't permitted to "cold call" unless I had a contact name. Two silent weeks went by and I was surprised, yet excited when I received a phone call to set up an interview. I was told it would be a panel interview made up of three nurse managers asking interpersonal type of questions. The interview was without a doubt difficult. Four nurse managers were present and I was told they perform behavioral based interviews. They handed me the outline of the interview so I could follow along. There were several questions with multiple parts, I felt nervous but confident with my answers. Toward the end of the interview they gave me a two part case study with a handful of written questions to be answered as well as verbal questions from the panel on what my nursing judgement would include. After the interview, I received a tour of the unit. I followed up with thank you email, but recieved a rejection phone call one week later.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Clackamas, OR) in July 2012.

    It was long and started with HR contacting me and then I interviewed with the department manager and then a month later went through orientation. The background check took a long time.

    There was no negotiation because the union decides on your pay.
