    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Banner Health.


    I was contacted first by a recruiter in HR. She then set up an interview with manager, I was given a tour of the unit, and allowed to ask any questions I had. I then followed up with a second group interview with some of the current staff, and they would give me scenario like questions to answer as well.
