    Interview

    Brief, quick and right to the PBI questions. I'm a veteran and end up not being selected for the position.

I just received a phone interview and awaiting for their respond. recommend to study the PBI questions from their online site. It gave me an idea and prepared me for the second interview. The first phone interview with "PBI questions" caught me off guard because I didn't know what they will ask.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs (Johnson City, TN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I actually applied for 3 jobs, I was interviewed for 2 of them. The interviews were 3 to 4 people in management positions. They took turns asking you questions, which consist of 3 to 4 part answers. You are graded on your answers.
    Most of the questions were more related to a hospital setting, which I have never worked in a hospital. So I felt like all my answers were basically the same. I've been a lpn for 32 years, and I worked in a nursing home for 4 yrs, then dermatology for 7 yrs, then ENT for 3 yrs, I've been at Mountain Region Family Med. ever since.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly can't remember the exact questions. They all were related to how you would respond to certain incidents. And if so and so happened what would you do.
      One was, have you in anyway suggested of a way of doing things better, and did my office manager agree. I'm sorry, I couldn't be more specific.   1 Answer
