    New Grad RN Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Whittier, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PIH Health (Whittier, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a call from the Clinical Director of the floor about 24 hours later. Ended up speaking about my experience and basic questions for about 15 minutes while on the phone. (Why do you want to be a nurse? Why did you choose PIH? Etc)

    Scheduled an In-Person interview 2 days later. I interviewed with the Clinical Director, Hiring Reciter, and Charge nurse. They ask a combination of personality and clinical judgement questions.

    Overall, the process was very pleasant. The environment was very relaxed, professional, even fun.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PIH Health.

    Interview

    They treat you with respect, and pretty much treat you as a friend when you walk into the interview. I felt so comfortable with the managers. It was a little less informal, but it felt less intimidating.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PIH Health (New York, NY) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed at the Downey Medical Center by the Manager and Lead. I haven't made it past that process so I have no further details. I was informed that I would be contacted after the interview wether or not I was hired which did not occur despite sending an email thanking her for the opportunity. It would have been easy to just reply and express that the position was filled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PIH Health (Whittier, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    It was relaxed and intimate with only two persons conducting the interview. They were each from their respective department because I was interviewing for two possible positions at the same time. There was no time limit and the process was very painless for an interview.

    Leadership Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PIH Health.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with hiring manager then scheduled for in person meeting. The hiring manager did not ask for a time preference and arbitrarily picked the middle of the day for the interview. Was told it would be 2 hours but once on site, asked if I could stay longer but I had plans based on the time that was scheduled. The second interviewer was almost a bully. She would ask another question before the first question was answered. She started drawing on my resume and just made it obvious that she wasn't interested. I just found the whole process to be off-putting and a waste of time. It changed my view of the entire organization and I question how those two even got into their positions.

    I applied online. I interviewed at PIH Health (Whittier, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online during my senior year of college - I received a phone call approximately a month after I graduated to set up an interview - Interviewed with the Nurse Recruiter and Unit Director. It was a great experience! They were both so kind and it was such a comfortable environment that I felt like I really got a feel for the unit's environment and the heart of the hospital - really excited to begin my nursing career here!

    Housekeeper (On-call) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at PIH Health in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview. She was not very interested in my lack of employment history and my months of trying to actually find a job. She was a little rude and unprofessional, basically rushing the whole call. I think she wants someone who goes to school or has strong work experience. But it was an on-call job and I was fully available and capable of doing the job, but I guess you have to have a degree in cleaning. She asked me too many questions about my life instead of the job and my transportation or if I could actually handle it. She also neglected to tell me more about what they would have me do if I was hired. It literally took months to get an actual response if I was going to get the job. I'm guessing that they were still interviewing people and finally found the perfect guy and later emailed everyone they interviewed that they would not be accepted.
