    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in January 2016.

    Interview

    New Graduate Nurse position (Med/Surg/ICU) at the open house: receptionist and recruiter welcomed you, signed you in and made a file for you. Nursing Supervisor met with each person individually. Everyone was very approachable and made you feel welcomed.

    The interview process was very pleasant for me, took about 15 mins, more like 2 people conversating about work, nursing values and experiences rather than questions/answers type.

    I made sure I let the interviewer know what I was looking for (positions, organizations, values) and how I would positively contribute to their hospital.
