    This is by far one of the most negative interviews I’ve been on I got there 15 mins early for my appointment the recruiter was nowhere to be found finally another recruiter comes out 45 minutes later and apologizes and walks me over to the hiring managers office the hiring manager was nice however she seemed very busy and uninterested in anything I had to say which made me even more nervous she also seemed a little rude I was sent a rejection letter the next day but the following day she called back and said she was going to reverse it but I would only be prn (on call) im not sure why I didn’t get the position I use to do the same work at medstar Georgetown hospital however that was temporary I live literally 5 mins away from Washington hospital center which would have been very convenient but I guess they hire who they want
