    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Virginia Mason Medical Center (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was intense and long, 9 interviews total and to my understanding is there would have been one or two more before the offer. I was a finalist, but no offer. The interview process was very professional, the interviewers were well prepared. It was a very pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all fair and well thought out. I interviewed with several team members and they had all prepared together. So each covered specific topics and areas and each had everything written out so both candidates received similar questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Virginia Mason Medical Center (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted online application on June 6th for RN residency. Received an email to set up a phone interview the next day. Phone interview on the 14th. Panel interview on July 6th. Offered position on July 18th after following up with them on the 17th via phone call.
    The HR phone interviewer was really nice and asked only a couple behavioral questions. The panel interview was done over Skype since I live in Hawaii. That one was a little nerve wrecking since there was 6 people interviewing me. They asked the basic behavioral questions such as 'tell me a time when you had a difficult patient/conflict with your fellow employees' and where do you see yourself in 5 years. Make sure to ask some really good questions at the end when they give you a chance to ask them questions. Be enthusiastic about their hospital and smile into the webcam!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Virginia Mason Medical Center (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online. Received an email from a recruiter to schedule a screening phone interview. After the interview, I was scheduled for a panel interview via Skype since I was out of town. After the panel interview, I heard back from the recruiter that they decided to extend the offer for the RN Residency position.

    Interview Questions

    • Prepare to answer most of the generic nursing interview questions that you can find online. For example, "What made you want to become a nurse?", "Why do you want to work for Virginia Mason?", etc. Make sure you prepare your answers with your own experience and something that's coming out of your heart. :)   1 Answer
