Registered Nurse Interview

Anonymous Employee in Providence, RI
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lifespan (Providence, RI) in November 2015.

Interview

They called me about a full time job. Then the job that they actually had was part-time. I felt like I was going to be a victim of bait-and-switch but the recruiter assured me that the original job had been filled in house. I know they are obligated to consider internal candidates first.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Lifespan (Providence, RI) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I applied in October and didn't get a call back until late December. I interviewed on New Year's Eve, again three weeks later. HR took a long time to get back to me to confirm I'd gotten then job - maybe mid-February - so I finally started at the beginning of March. 5 months is a long time to interview, and I've heard it's resulted in their losing candidates along the way. The interview itself went well - very nice people.

    Interview

    I applied in October and didn't get a call back until December. I interviewed on New Year's Eve, and completed the second round about 3 weeks later. I didn't get any confirmation from HR until maybe mid-February so I couldn't start until early March. I've heard they often lose many candidates during this process. However, the interviews themselves went smoothly - very nice people.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lifespan (Providence, RI) in August 2012.

    I applied online, multiple times, for multiple research positions. Finally, after 1 months was called to interview with HR. They asked the usual questions. Once we completed the HR interview then I was brought to the department. I then had a second, on site, interview with the department manager, and shortly after we finished, I interviewed with the department staff. I was called for a second interview to meet more staff. Within 2 hours they called me to offer me the position. I accepted and have been there since.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lifespan (Providence, RI) in May 2012.

    Interview

    First a few calls from HR, then a meeting with HR and finally an interview with a number of the people I'd work with in the department. The HR person asked very different questions than the department and it turned out later the HR person asked pretty useless ones. To get past the HR portion you need to study up on Lifespan itself and appear very excited to work for Lifespan in particular. Once you make it past HR the real interview starts.
