I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic in Mar 2021

Interview

Recruiter contacted me and I submitted my resume. Six days later got an email to schedule an interview. Was told it would be behavior based questions and to prepare a 3-5 minute case presentation. Interview was a panel interview via Skype with 4 people from the department. Lasted about 45 minutes, everyone was very nice. Asked me to do a second interview the following day, same set up with 4 different people from the department. Again, very nice. Received an offer later that afternoon. All questions for both interviews were behavior based, so definitely prepare for that.

I applied online. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Phoenix, AZ) in Mar 2021

Interview

I was called by the Nursing Placement Coordinator to discuss my qualifications over the phone and to schedule an interview. Interviews were held over Zoom. Questions were standard interview questions. My first interview was with the Nursing Placement Coordinator and was very positive and professional. Later that same day, I had a second interview with the hiring manager of the floor I applied to. This interview was extremely brief (10 minutes), the interviewer cut me off in my responses as she continually interrupted me, and she did not discuss the position much. When I asked questions about the position and work environment, answers were very short and I felt like I was burdening her with my curiosity about the position. I believe they already knew who they were hiring and my interview was a formality and a waste of my time and PTO at my current job.

Interview Questions
  • Give an example of a time you had a conflict with a coworker and how you handled it.
  • If a patient called you to state that the nurse forgot to give them their pain meds what would you do?
  • Describe a time you exceeded patient expectations.
