    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Christian Hospital.


    Interviewed with someone in HR before choosing a specific floor or unit to interview. Once I passed the interview in HR, my information was passed onto the unit I was interested in and an interview time was set up. The floor interview was quite easy as the Nurse Manager was off and the charge nurse conducted a 1:1 interview. Since that time, they incorporated group interviews into the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't remember. Many questions come from a list generated by HR.   Answer Question


    I was 22 years old and their base pay was $1.55 more than what I was working for at a Nursing home as a CNA. Benefits exceeded expectations at the time.
