    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.

    OTR Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Norfolk, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process with Sentara healthcare, including hiring process, is quite thorough. But it is also flawed in many ways. There are too many positions involved, including a recruiter, management, sub management, peers. It is very difficult and lengthy to manage the process, from a candidate, and a lower management perspective.

    Lab Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, VA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    What will it take to perform this task? What kind of person is this company looking for?

    It will require good communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to interface with a diverse group of people and levels. If these are your areas of strength, focus on letting the interviewer know that you have the ability and experience to interface well with many different groups.

    Like the speechwriter, you want your audience to remember the important points you have made. By concentrating on a handful of strengths, you will find that you are more focused and succinct about telling what you have to offer. More importantly, the folks you meet are more likely to remember you for your strengths.

    Clinician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Virginia Beach, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Virginia Beach, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was thorough and I actually enjoyed it. All open ended experiential questioning that sought to see if applicant's experience was remotely close to the position's requirements. The interviewers were very particular in their line of questioning, but did a wonderful job in allowing me to be myself and not structuring the interview like a formal interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sentara Healthcare (Virginia Beach, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Lunch interview and very few questions were asked. It was more like I was holding the interview. The two interviewers seemed as if they were not prepared to interview me and one was late to the interview so we had to rehash what was previously discussed.
