    Interview Questions

    • Filling the dead air and trying to figure out what your job is actually going to be. Oh, "Marketing" the company. It's also important to mention that everyone in that office looks miserable. If you know what's best, run.   Answer Question

    Administrator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pacific Hospice in December 2016.

    Interview

    One of the nurses asked me to interview with the doctor. The building is very run down and unclean with serious bars on Windows. Neighborhood appeared be crime-ridden with lots of homeless folks walking around. Noticed some appeared
    Drunk or on something else. The doctor asked about my psychology/sociology degrees and would I mind trying to get new patients for Hospice by visiting SNFs and talking with patients and families about hospice program. It seems distasteful to "recruit" hospice patients.

    Reasons for Declining

    The Doctor (the owner) was observed micromanaging staff, yelling at staff. This person has a well-known history of being abusive, rude. I'd stay clear of this place. Keep looking, and you'll find a place where your work is appreciated, and you are treated
    with the respect you deserve. This place is not it.

    RN Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pacific Hospice (San Bernardino, CA).

    Interview

    I met with a woman who I presume was another RN. She asked me a sheet of generic questions. Then she took me to a back room and had me fill out their actual application. After completing that she took me to see the doctor of the facility. He was not very professional. He kept answering his phone (and I understand as a Doctor your patients come first, but these phone calls were regarding him not being able to access some account online) He didn't even apologize for it, just interrupted my sentences. At one point he got up and left the room without saying anything. At the end of the interview he just told me once I was licensed to come back in and I could start? It was the strangest interview ever. Needless to say I never returned.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pacific Hospice.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the office manager. The questions were very basic. This is an obvious one, but bring a copy of your resume. I usually bring along a portfolio to my interviews but this time did not because I electronically submitted everything online. I took responsiblity for not printing any items, and at this point was told to wait outside the office while they printed my resume. It was a bit embarrassing as I waited for a length of time that made me feel that they were reconsidering interviewing me.
    They printed a copy of the resume I submitted with my online application and we went over my experience. The director was on site, but did not participate in my interview other than a muffled "Hi" under his breath after I said "Hello" in attempt to introduce myself. He was briefly reviewing my resume, that contains 2 years of solid experience I am proud of, when he suddently walked away without a question or comment. It seemed to be an instant disqualification as the director seemed to not be interested in getting to know more about me or my experience. At this point I knew I did not want the job, but more than likely would not have an offer. After I finished answering the interviewer's questions, I had a nursing specific question and the woman interviewing me said she could not answer the question as she was not a nurse. That took me by surprise because in my interviewing experience I have been interviewed by a panel where at least one person shared my same profession. It was a very awkward interview.

    RN Case Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pacific Hospice (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online (Indeed) and was called almost immediately for an interview. The interview was extremely disjointed. I met with a woman who asked me what job I applied for and three strengths, then she had me fill out an application packet. Then I met with the director of the hospice. He asked three questions, and then left in the middle of the interview for about ten minutes to take a phone call. The office was very disorganized.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Hospice in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was very nervous about the interview, but the administrator allowed me to express my ideas and thoughts freely; it felt as if I was having a conversation with a colleague and not a potential employer! I was asked questions about why I choose the field of nursing, my strengths, where I see myself in 5 years, and what I knew about hospice. He was very interested in what I had to say. Overall I think it was a very easy interview (compared to others where the hiring managers were simply busy and didn't care about what you had to say)

      Why did you choose the field of nursing?

    Interview

    person who interviewed me was so unprofessional seemed like she didnt want to interview me, didnt make eye contact and she kept looking down. there were workers around us while i was geting interviewed which made it uncomfortable. she gave the administrator the resume and he came out and asked why i wanted to leave my other job in front of the workers. interview lasted no more than 5 minutes. i probably didnt get the job but shouldnt they ask if we had any questions or tell us a little about the job? to all the interviews ive been to this was by far the worst.
