    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care.

    Interview

    There were two phone interviews, one brief one with HR and then an extended one hour phone call with the unit manager. Following this, I interviewed almost two hours in person with the manager, two assistant managers, and a floor nurse. The standard interview questions are tiring and laborious. To prepare, think of specific events that you can use to tell about your RN experiences.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care.

    Interview

    Stanford Healthcare has a great reputation so I applied to a few openings and interviewed with a couple of teams. Coming from a med-tech industry, I was surprised to learn that there is no standardized interview protocol. For example, I wasn't given a job description and the one that I saw online was awfully vague. The interviewers weren't sure about the basic information that I asked about the new position. They didn't bother to introduce their roles at Stanford or keep an eye contact. Lastly, everyone that I met ( coordinator, office managers, managers, directors) are in their mid-50s. Being a young, foreign female in Silicon Valley, I felt a little out of place in this old white boys' club.

    Nurse Practitioner Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care (Palo Alto, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    All interviews that I have done at Stanford have started with a phone interview, and then are followed up with an in-person interview. It was a very typical interview in terms of questions, but I was surprised about being interviewed by the whole team rather than just one person. It was intimidating at first, but then I felt it was to my benefit because I got to see what it would feel like to work as part of their team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care (Palo Alto, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process started with an HR phone interview in May 2017.
    After 2 months HR called to set up interview with a manager, followed by 2 more phone interviews and a final onsite interview.
    Total process total 4 months

    If you ever get a call for onsite interview don’t pay for travel expenses from your pocket as I am afraid you will NOT be reimbursed.
    Followed up with HR 10 Times but Stanford Human Resources team are very unethical and unprofessional. 2 months and counting to get reimbursed

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care (Santa Barbara, CA) in May 2017.

    Brief, friendly, and not very talkative. My interviewer emailed me and set up an interview within the week. She was not very enthusiastic but was still professional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care.

    Interview

    Filled with red flags from start to finish. Wouldn't talk salary initially and then low-balled me with the offer. Also asked to speak to three of my previous managers - which is against company policy. Only HR can confirm dates worked, salary, etc. And then also asked for past performance reviews. Past performance reviews contain private financial information from companies. They didn't want to accept this and my offer was rescinded. Feel like I dodged a bullet.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care (Stanford, CA).

    Interview

    Phone interview, then in-person interview with multiple managers a few weeks later. From there it took months for the recruiter to get back to me with an offer and the salary negotiations were like a root canal. My start date was a full month and a half after signing the offer letter due to their archaic recruiting, onboarding and payroll process.
