    Panel interview
    Make you feel great. They speak highly of the answers you gave to the questions they asked. They give praise and point out things like you’re everything they’re looking for. Then you wait excited for some weeks to get an email saying you were not chosen for the job. They dont even off a written explanation as to why you weren’t selected.

    The hiring process takes months but the interview was quick and easy. I was more qualified than the supervisors that interviewed me. They just ask basic questions on what computer systems you are familiar with.

    Assistant Nurse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Little Rock, AR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (North Little Rock, AR).

    Interview

    All parties were in the same building. It was not done face to face. Was done over the telephone, very impersonal. Asked multiple part questions. Read them Very Rapidly. Lot of distortion on phone with some voices. Hard to mentally keep track of all of the parts of the questions that they were rapidly reading. Did 10 multiple part questions in ~ 30 minutes. You were not given enough time to even write them down to know if you were getting all parts answered. The rapid fire reading of questions made this Very difficult and impersonal. Face to Face interviews should be offered when the interview panel are in same area or building

    Interview Questions

    • Level 4 questions for a Unit Manager, not Level 2 or 3 for a Potential New Assistant Nurse Manager which was what the interview was for-deviated away from the standard Performance Based questions that should have been asked for the level that was advertised   1 Answer
