I have been working at Parkland Health Center part-time (More than a year)
Great teamwork amongst staff and management
No real cons except the facility with somewhat limited services available, as is consistent with most more rural or small facilities, but staff are great and provide good compassionate care.
Advice to Management
Management has been great.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parkland Health Center (Farmington, MO) in February 2011.
Standard HR interview with usual questions regarding education and previous employment. Met with HR to review resume and qualifications. After HR interview another interview was scheduled by phone with the department managers of several hospital departments due to multiple openings. The second interview day was spent touring the facility and meeting/interviewing with departmental managers. The final interview was a peer interview with several nurses and a unit secretary from the preferred unit. All of the meetings consisted of basic questions reviewing work ethic, personality, handling of difficult situations, and examples of such from professional experience.
