    New Grad RN Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Virginia Mason in March 2020.

    Interview

    Fairly easy process, took a couple weeks from applying online to doing a phone interview with the nurse recruiter, then next a video review with the hiring unit managers. From there I waited about two weeks until I received an offer for a position that begins in late summer. Overall it was an fairly painless process and my recruiter, Jill, was amazing. She was so kind and answered all of my questions and is part of the reason I took the job. If the other staff are half as nice and guiding to new grads I'm sure I'll love this hospital!

    Interview

    Applied online with a resume and letter.
    Unable to speak to anyone about process.
    Was never even contacted although I had worked there previously for several years.
    For a health care organization, they sure don't seem to care. I wonder what Dr. Kaplan would think about this.
