I applied online. I interviewed at Swedish (Seattle, WA) in Jul 2020

Interview

An HR rep called pretty quickly. Instead of emailing and scheduling a time to speak for 30 minutes, she called and launched in to questions that are more typical of a longer interview. (Describe a time you met a challenge; Tell me about a time you dealt with a difficult colleague; the standard list) She responded to some serious responses with "ok no worries" or " no problem" and seemed to be rushing me. Sorry, ask a serious question, get a serious answer. She stated I was being forwarded to a hiring manager... then the next day I received a rejection email. It was just an odd experience.

Interview Questions

Interview

The interviewers didn't carefully look at my application. I don't think they knew I'm a disabled person, from their printout of my application and resume. Maybe I should've told them I'm Autistic.

Interview Questions
  • Am I comfortable cleaning up human waste

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Swedish (Seattle, WA) in Oct 2019

Interview

One hour panel interview with two pharmacists and pharmacy director. As has been my experience in all pharmacies, the interview was disorganized, there was cross-talk and arguing amongst the interviewers, as pharmacists used the opportunity to power-trip and bicker with each other. One pharmacist was particularly disruptive and 20 min into my interview, I was reminded of all the reasons I left inpatient pharmacy work to begin with. Utterly unprofessional environment and HR really should sit in on all interviews.

Interview Questions
  • One pharmacist asked if my current job was a conflict of interest with the position and derailed the entire interview fixating on this point.

Interview

I applied online as an experienced RN. I recieved an email 4 weeks later asking to set up a phone interview. The interview was set for about a week out. I rearranged my current work schedule to get off work early enough to complete the phone interview. I left work early that day and arrived home with about 20 minutes to spare to review my notes before the phone call. I looked at my phone only to realize HR had called me 30 minutes prior to my scheduled interview and left a VM saying if I was still interested to call and/or email. I immediately checked my email to make sure I didn't mess up on the time and sure enough, I was not the one who made the mistake. I called back right away and the call went to voicemail. I left a professional message apologizing for missing her call and explained I was still very interested in the position. I figured maybe she would realize her mistake and call me at the correct time. 4pm (the agreed upon phone interview) came and went. My heart sank. I emailed around 4:30 once again apologizing and looking to reschedule. HR got back to me the following business day but explained she couldn't reschedule me for another week and a half. Okay, I really wanted the job so I patiently waited for the interview. I emailed a day prior to confirm our time. This time, she called at the correct time. She asked about my previous experience, had 3 behavioral based questions for me, and asked if I had any questions. I had several questions, all of which she said she didn't know the answer and said I would have to ask at the in person interview. She then told me if she felt I met the qualifications she would forward my application to the hiring manager, but an in person interview would be at least a week and a half out. She also informed me they do a 10-panel drug screen (totally fine I guess) which included nicotine and alcohol. I'm sorry, it just seems ridiculous. I realize the hiring process can take time but several months? And a drug test for nicotine and alcohol? I've never even heard of that. This organization seems very disorganized, HR doesn't own up to their mistakes (somehow I felt guilty for missing HR's phone call when they screwed up the time), and a bit intrusive for drug testing for totally legal substances. This seems so be a sign and maybe speak to the bigger picture. Sorry Swedish, I don't want to work for you guys that bad. Applied at another hospital last weekend, got an in person interview within 5 days, and was hired on the spot today. I think I'll go with the facility that actually wants me.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a situation where you disagreed with another coworker?
  • Tell me about a particularly difficult patient you've had.
  • What's one example where you went above and beyond for a patient?
