    Readiology Tech Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University Medical Center (Las Vegas) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Lengthy process. Manager already has her candidates selected for open positions, only going through formal process of interviews because of HR policy. Unfair to interviewees. This manager is a strong person to work for. If you don't get a job here, it is a blessing in disguise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University Medical Center (Las Vegas) (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Then received a phone call to schedule an interview. Interview went smooth, and I was offered the job after a few other people were interviewed. Just know your basic laboratory knowledge. HR was smooth, and you go through a basic orientation process. Nothing to difficult at all. They also hire all types of people so as long as you're personable and have the right experience it shouldn't be difficult to get hired on.

    Nursing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at University Medical Center (Las Vegas) (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I was a current employee of the hospital, applying for a different position. There were 6 on the panel. Two I knew very well, 2 moderately well, and 2 slightly. I had previously Interviewed for a different position,with 3 of the panel. I did not get that position, but was later told how well I did in the interview, and to please interview again for other positions. (blessing in disguise when I didn't get that job) I think outside applicants have an edge with many of the positions posted but some of our salaries are just too low for some to consider. (I am at the maxed out level for pay and only get COLA. Newer employees have less benefits compensation, therefore less costly to the hospital. If you look online at the salary listings one sight has posted for county employees, the numbers are deceiving. Many nurse salaries on that site are $90,000-100,000, but these nurses work lots of overtime. It is the same for many other county employees listed there)
    The typical questions were asked, why do you want this job, what can you bring to the position, how would you handle xxx situation…Maybe I knew what answers were expected.
    The work culture is somewhat tense because of the financial situation, but generally a good, fair, friendly work environment. Of course there are exceptions, but I really believe it is the best hospital in Las Vegas for work environment, support of staff, consistency, acceptance and tolerance.

    Interview Questions

    • What is it that YOU can bring to this position.   1 Answer
    • How do you handle the situation of being asked to work with someone you do not like (or does not like you) or do not get along with?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiation except possibly at the administrative level. Many directors have dual roles. Their salaries are very good, but they work their hind ends off. Administration must also work with local politicians as they oversee the county hospital.
    Anybody up for a challenge?
