    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (Nashville, TN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First there is a phone interview, which was very positive. You feel like you're talking to a friend you have known for a long time. Next they send you an online assessment to be sure you are suited to the job. After you pass, you are offered an in-person interview. I did a background check also. I received an offer the same day I interviewed, which really made me feel invaluable. I am looking forward to working for a world renowned medical corporation.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (Nashville, TN) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was very planned out. The interviewer is given a set of questions, i assume from HR, and they must ask you every question on the list. It took over 5 months for me to hear back that I was awarded the job. VUMC's interview process is extremely slow and poorly managed.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (Nashville, TN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    As a student, the undergrad work/study program was was easy to understand in terms of the hiring process. What I've heard from full time staff is that the interview process is straightforward and simple as well. Getting the job required quite a bit of past experience, and also a strong interest in the work to be done and matching up with Vanderbilt's creed and values.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (Nashville, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was fast and smooth. First there was a phone interview from one of the managers. During this I got to learn about nurse:patient ratios, number of beds on the unit, acuity of the patients, etc. At the end of the interview I was offered a face-to-face interview, with an option to do it on Skype (I lived about three hours away). I chose to drive to the hospital for the interview to get a better feel of the atmosphere and also places to live near the hospital. The assistant managers interviewed me and gave me a tour of the unit. They were very forthcoming and helpful, even talking about possible orientation dates.
