    HR interview in a group at first and then we had our applications sent to units of our choosing.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at VCU Medical Center.

    Interview

    HR was disorganized when I was hired. Hopefully, it's better now, but I definitely had to hound them Also, now I hear they have a personality inventory for new hires-- not sure if this is really the way to go. Anyway, this personality inventory is supposed to help us make better decision; I think we got sold a bill of goods.

    Interview Questions

    • I think the questions were fair. I don't believe I was asked standardized questions, but now we have a list. But the questions that we currently ask are typical-- "Tell us about a conflict and how you handled it..." That sort of thing which I assume is pretty typical of most interviews these days.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. It was right after the recession, and I was happy to get a job offer as a career-changer nurse.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at VCU Medical Center (Richmond, VA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Apply on-line, call from department admin to schedule on-site interview.

    I live in South Carolina and the interview was in Richmond, VA (300 miles one way). Neither mention nor offer to reimburse mileage or provide hotel accommodations. The interview was scheduled for at 2 p.m. I arrived early and we started approximately 10 minutes early. At 2:38 the Director of the Workers’ Compensation department for the VCU Medical System notified the person interviewing me that they had a 2:30 appointment for which they were late; I laughed thinking they were joking since this is a fairly high level position and I had driven five hours there to be interviewed. It was not a joke however. The interviewer abruptly ended the interview and walked me to the door. I drove five hours for a 38 minute interview where I was only asked questions that are typically covered in a phone interview prior to bringing someone of my caliber for an on-site interview. I can safely rule out this position/department within the VCU Medical System as a place I wish to work going forward.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer had not reviewed my resume at all prior to my arrival. I had to provide him a copy of my resume upon arrival and they took a few minutes to review it then asked a question I typically get in a phone screen with HR: Tell me about your background. I summarized my resume. What attracted you to this field. I provided why I chose to be in the field of Occupational Safety & Health.   1 Answer

    My initial communication with them was via e-mail. We exchanged various e-mails. Through these e-mails I was able to send my curriculum vitae, cover letter and statement of skills and competencies to the person doing the hiring. Subsequently, we spoke on the phone. After a couple of telephone conversations, we moved to the hiring stage. The rest of our communications were then via e-mail.
