    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mercy Health System in April 2014.

    Interview

    I had no issues with the interview process. The company is just really hard to get into. It took me over 4 years of applying to actually get a call. I think the only thing that got me the interview was that I had a good reference.

    Patient Registration Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mercy Health System (Blue Ash, OH).

    Interview

    Mercy has a few different steps in an interview. They first or second (for some) will have a phone interview and screening. Secondly, they will have a face to face interview. Third, they will do a peer interview/panel. This may be someone from another section in the hospital, management, and they may not even know what you do when you work/how you do your job. Finally, they may or may not offer you the job. For me, I got a call three months later that I got the job. Remember to be patient and get a hold of someone's business card (whether it be HR or the person that interviewed you). Don't give in and assume that you didn't get it, keep pestering them about whether or not a final decision was made.

    Interview Questions

    • What would I bring to the company and how would patients notice that I brought it?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't too much of a negotiation phase. It was either I wanted the job, or not.

    RN for Interventional Radiology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norristown, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mercy Health System (Norristown, PA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed with manager and staff member together. Spent most of the time explaining their department. Wanted to know how I would handle a physician yelling at me during a case. Also wanted to know how I would deal with a peer that had a conflict with me or I had with them. Toured the department, the ICU, met several of the physicians that worked there. Was told they had several more candidates to interview and would make decision in about 2-3 wks. I called HR in about 3+ wks to see if they had made a decision or filled the position. She didn't know! She was the Head of HR, she said she would check with the manager and have her get in touch with me. She didn't. I e-mailed the manager to see where things stood and if she needed anything else, never heard back. Very unprofessional and lacked "class." Wouldn't work for that organization or recommend it.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mercy Health System.

    Interview

    Interviewed by HR for another position, interviewed in that department on the same day, but had to wait 2 hours for 2nd manager to interview with. Not upset about that...a busy unit and we (RN's) know there are just days like that! Before I accepted that units job offer, HR suggested I would be a good fit for the research position. I ended up having an HR interview, then an interview by the manager in the research department, then interviewed by the research medical director. Was shown around the office and figured the position was mine. The interviews were very straightforward.
