    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at LifeNet Health (Virginia Beach, VA) in January 2014.


    Basic interview. They seemed desperate for workers. If you were ok with working with organs and said you paid attention to detail, you got an offer. They also asked if you could follow aseptic technique. If you went to college and majored in science, this should not be difficult.
