    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Reading, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Reading Health System (West Reading, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The first step involved a phone screening/interview, where you're then invited to come in if you match their basic requirements.

    The in-person interview consisted of a 20-30 minute meet with an HR representative which goes over school, work history, basic history questions, etc. The HR rep then goes over schedule, salary, and benefits to give you a heads up should you be offered a position. This is followed by a 15 minute interview with the nurse manager(s) where they ask you behavioral and "tell us about a time when..." questions. Finally, you shadow a nurse for an hour or so, so that you can get a feel for the floor.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about a time something didn't work out the way you wanted it to.   Answer Question

    Graduate Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Reading Health System.

    Interview

    Chris was the nicest recruiter I have ever dealt with. He gave me great information about the position, salary, benefits, tuition assistance when I go back for my BSN, etc. He emailed me all the interview information (location, who I would be meeting with, agenda, map of the health system). He actually spoke to me like a real person. I have spoke to many recruiters that seem robotic. The nurse manager was great and gave me great information about the floor, teamwork, expectations. I like that I could spend some time on the floor after speaking to the nurse manager.

    Interview Questions

    Graduate nurse rate was given during interview process.

    Administrative Resident Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Reading Health System (Reading, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. Had an initial phone interview and was then invited to an on-site interview. HR was kind enough to make hotel reservations and reimburse me for my travel expenses. The interview itself was long but relatively easy; mostly behavioral/experience-based questions. I met with several senior leaders and had great conversations with most of them. I left the interview thinking I did well. I was told to expect a response in a couple of weeks. I sent follow up emails after two weeks had passed by but never received a response. I only got to know I did not get a job when I heard that someone else was extended the offer. Advice to HR: Please inform final candidates of your decision. I know hiring can be an overwhelming experience and you are probably hiring for multiple positions simultaneously but a quick email informing a candidate of your decision is the bare minimum.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Reading Health System (West Reading, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Too long...Recruiter amazing...never had a recruiter know financials, salary, and benefits in great detail...Nicole DeSantis was excellent. Interview with Nurse Manager great, but staff interview not good. Reminded me of the "insiders/popular group" from high school. I wouldn't want to work on this floor but yes to the organization.

    EVS Housekeeper Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Reading, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Reading Health System (West Reading, PA).

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview. Nothing out of the ordinary. Consisted of you being in a room with 3 people ( the director supervisor and one from human resources). Asking simple questions. Overall though the entire hiring process takes about a month from filling the application online to the interview process and finally getting to the orientation date. Theres testing online before you get an interview date (not the same as the application, if your being considered its required) and of course there's health tests to be done as well (hospital procedure, but this is after, if you've been accepted).. All in all the interview is easy nothing major EVS will probably hire almost anyone, it is one of the 'lower class' groups in the hospital, as well as 'laundry' and 'dietary/nutrition services' ...you'll find that out once you've been hired and actually work... Food for thought.

    Therapist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Reading Health System.

    Interview

    Very positive experience. The recruiter was professional and friendly. I met several staff members, and all were very friendly and more than willing to answer questions. The interview included a thorough tour of the facility, which was modern and clean. They also provided lunch with a staff member, which allowed me to ask more detailed questions about the position and facility. The background checks and pre-employment testing with occupational health were extensive.
