    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was referred in by a physician who was the PI for a study. The whole team is extremely nice and the on-boarding was thorough. Your clinical knowledge doesn't need to be up to speed because you will be trained by the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in September 2017.

    Interview

    It took almost a month after I applied online before they called me for a phone interview. Interviewed with the unit director then a panel interview. Experience mostly positive. All behavioral questions and role play at the end. What is weird is I thought I will get an offer at least somehow that was the impression I got. But after a week Manager emailed me that she couldn't make an offer due to skills and experience.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me and had a phone interview. Went on a panel interview onsite. Not thorough from recruiter to the individuals conducting the interview. There was never a follow up from anyone. Very surprising of UCSF to have a poor recruiting process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone screening with a supervisor. I was then asked to come to the hospital to interview. The interview itself was extensive, and lengthy. Mostly dealing with questions that have to do with your personality type interacting with other team members, supervisors, and patients. Also there were questions about how you handled very difficult situations during your times of employment in the past. After the interview you're asked to job shadow for an hour or so to get the feel of the job a bit and be able to talk to some of the working techs and see how they feel about it.

    Began with two phone interviews then two in-person interviews. Whole process took about 3 weeks. Great overall experience; I felt informed and respected throughout the whole process.

    three person panel interview, read behavioral type interview questions off a sheet and circled on the sheet according to my responses. they wanted a scenario and an example from practice; somewhat cold process, felt i couldn't connect with them, as they just read behavioral questions off a sheet and circled/wrote comments based on my answers. Also did a role play at the end, where they presented a scenario and then i had to pretend i was the nurse and one of the interviewers was the patient.
