    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I am a new graduate nurse. A nurse recruiter reached out to me and scheduled and interview to meet with HR. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. She asked situational questions about my clinical experience (ex. how I would react under a stressful situation). Overall it was relatively easy since I was prepared with situational responses.

    IT Help Desk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fredericksburg, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Fredericksburg, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Very good in-person interview, the issue I have with the process is the feedback, no returned calls from the recruiters office after several voice mails left. The only way to check the status of the application is to check on the application page. After two months waiting they finally closed the position with no explanation. Most jobs I have interviewed with or the positions I have held the interviews myself, there is always a follow up call to the job seeker.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions revolved around past job history and why you are applying.   1 Answer

    Scheduler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodbridge, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Woodbridge, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on 6/26/16 via online. I got a call from a recruiter on 7/14/16 where they briefly asked about my qualifications. They told me that they were forwarding my application to the hiring manager and they would call me in a few days to set up an interview. The hiring manager called on 7/25/16 and asked me some general scheduling questions and asked me to come in for an interview with her another manager and her team lead on 8/2/16.
    The interview took about 40 min. Because they were running behind I was able to meet 4 other applicants interviewing for the same position. If you google "example interview questions", the top ten questions are the same exact questions you get in the interview...Why are you a good candidate? What is one flaw you see in yourself.....
    I felt like I did really well with the interview, however, it has been 3 weeks since the interview and I am probably not getting an offer. I really enjoyed the interview and I am sad I will not get to work with the ladies I interviewed with. They seemed to have a great team!

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norfolk, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a Sentara nurse recruiter for a phone interview. After she asked some basic employee screening-type questions, she set up an interview with the nurse manager. I went in to shadow on the unit for a few hours and had the interview afterward with the manager and CNS. Because I'm a new grad and don't have much experience in the specialty, most of my interview questions were behavioral and customer service-based. In exchange, I asked a few questions about orientation and new grad residency. Two days later I was offered the job.
