    Registered Nurse Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Phone screen with coordinators, then setup for interview with managers by HR. Was advised that I needed to start licensing process to be available once hired. Had to call HR to see if interview still going ahead -manager was late to interview, other didn't show. Charge nurse was called in. Went ahead. Was asked scenario questions that didn't pertain to the unit I work & have experience in. Later received non-descript email saying they hired other candidates. Asked for feedback, no response. Asked HR if they could get feedback & management wouldn't respond. Poor experience. Now have to pay to verify that license until I leave nursing. Can't recommend.

    It went well I was prepared so that helped tremendously in the whole interview process. It is behavioral based interview questions for all positions that I am aware of.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I had an appointment in March for an interview but Mayo had an opening 2 weeks before. The panel wasn't too friendly. I got my degree in December so most of the questions didn't pertain to me.

    Communications Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The recruiter called and asked me a few questions. She then proceeded to tell me that the position was only 30 hours so it was hourly and would not qualify for benefits. None of that was mentioned in the job posting. She then said another interview would be set up next week, but then I get an email a few days later saying they're no longer interested. Very shady experience and definitely will not be applying to any more of their positions. And it's ridiculous that a healthcare organization is skimping out on healthcare for their own employees.

    Interview Questions

    • Am I ok with not getting benefits since it's only 30 hours a week?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic in January 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online with a resume, cover letter, and 2 recommendation letters (I used one academic and one professional). HR emails you to set up an interview. I heard back 3 weeks or so after applying online. There was a strictly timed 30 minute phone interview with two Mayo Clinic employees (one had been there 5 years, and one had been there 25 years). I was asked 3 questions, and there was no "tell me about yourself" as they had read all the materials. One week after interviewing I was emailed with a decision from HR, and I appreciated the transparency in the process.

    Two interview process
    Bother interviews were over FaceTime.
    First interview consisted of situational questions you may find in the work environment. After answering what you would do there would be a debriefing and critique. This interview is less formal.
    Second interview was with a panel and was a mix of questions about the candidate with more situational questions

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Scottsdale, AZ) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted to have a phone screen interview via email a few weeks later. Employer changed the date after agreeing to a time previously. After successful phone screen, scheduled a day long interview with each team I would potentially work with. People working there are very nice and professional. Waited two months without further contact from the teams or manager. Received an email notifying me that they "decided to pursue other candidates who more closely fit the needs of the department at this time."
