    Histology Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    First they call you for a pre-interview and ask basic questions, then if they like what they hear they will invite you for an in person interview.

    In person they take you to the area to see what's going on and ask you a bunch of questions like where did you work before, working in groups, etc.

    Practice Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    Applied online, completed phone screen. Then called in for interview with Director, and a 2nd interview with a physician at the practice. I assume I did not get the job; but no one ever followed up and formally rejected me. The same thing happened with someone else I know that interviewed for a different position. They do not let you know if you were not selected, even when you have interviewed in person.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    You need to be top 5 percent of your graduating class to get an interview. For every 100 applicants, about 5 get interviews. Highly sought out location and organization. I would not apply unless you have been exceptionally successful. Especially the hospitalist group which is a highly skilled group of doctors.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    The interview involved a shadow day followed by a group peer interview by the current unit staff as well as meetings with the department managers and directors. I was interviewing for two different positions within the same department so part of the shadow experience was to determine if one of the positions would be a better fit than another.

    Interview Questions

    • Clinical questions were presented in a very broad manner.   1 Answer

    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with HR followed by onsite interview with a Director and Manager. Laid back, low pressure interview. Straightforward SQL test at the end of the interview. Called back for second round interview with team members the next week. Interviewed with three separate team members, also laid back and low pressure. Received an offer a few days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Initial phone screening included many rapid fire questions about job experiences ("talk about a time you handled a difference of opinion with a coworker," etc. If you understand the position and why you want it, everything after was fairly easy.   Answer Question

    RN In Patient: Psych Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    I had 2 initial phone interviews, first with a talent recruiter then with HR. Next, we scheduled an interview, with unit manager. All of which were separated by 2 week intervals. The in person interview was late due to miscommunication, between unit manager, permanent safety officier and covering safety officier. So, my initial start time of 1330 got pushed to 1350. I did ask safety about the situation 2x. No assistance. Finally, manager comes out. We clarify the situation, and I meet with other staff. Then I met with manager. Overall the interviews are easy. Was offered a day to shadow but because I decided on another path.

    Interview Questions

    • Situation you went above and beyond for a patient.   Answer Question
    • Time when you and a boss, patient, or colleague got into an argument and how you handled it.   Answer Question
    • Prior to shadowing I had a time conflict with a position I had accepted. I informed manager and HR. They never replied, rude. But, it felt as though they were just waiting to finish the process to offer me a position.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    Lots of interviews with faculty members. Some were really intense. Some were really laid back. It all depends on your field and specialty. It was a very long day! We had lunch as well.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Northwestern Medicine.

    Interview

    Persistent contact for interview and wasn't interested. I interviewed in the past. They wanted techno functional which clearly on my resume I did not have technical nvision or sql experience. I had limited experience. Nonetheless the hiring manager told me he was willing to overlook due the extensive background I have during phone interview. Went in for in person interview and was still asked about my techno side. Shortly after I get a call back saying the hiring manager needs techno functional. You wasted my time and
    yours. READ RESUMES!! Pay attention to phone interviews. There is a reason this position is still open. Got a better deal after.
