    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was interviewed and it went pretty well. The Unit Manager was very easy going and made me feel very comfortable. Jose the Human Resources manager. Was leery about hiring people " with too much experience" he stated that he would rather hire some who had less experience rather than a "old dog who you can't teach new tricks"

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and after a few days got a call from one of the nurse recruiters. She asked me a few questions on the phone and told me she'd set up an interview to meet. I then got an email with the details for the interview. Interview was simple - asked about previous healthcare experience and about times where I handled a problematic situation etc. after we finished I was then taken down to meet the nurse manager and had an interview with her. Talked about why I picked the specific floor I had applied for and more basic interview questions about how I work in a team etc. Got a call later that day and got the job!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.

    Interview

    This was just a phone interview during which we discussed my background and what opportunities might be a good fit. About a week later they emailed to say that they do not currently have an opening matching my skills and experience, but they considered my background to be good for RIC and they encouraged me to continue to apply if I saw other openings that interested me.
