    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Virginia Hospital Center in February 2017.

    Interview

    It started out with their open event for new grads. You meet four hiring managers from the unit of choice and hope they call back. It's kind of like speed dating. 7 minutes to speak with 4 managers. Because I really wanted to interview with one unit that kept being preoccupied with other people wanted to be interviewed by the same manager as well, I squeezed in a brief introduction (which made it my fifth interview) and some information about myself. She wanted to know more, and called me back through Human Resources to set up a formal interview with her on her unit.

    I was interviewed briefly by a recruiter who presented a packet of the benefits and other employee information. Took a walk to the unit hat I was going to have a formal interview by the hiring manager. A peer interview from several of the staff on the floor and then a brief orientation of the unit.

    Do expect rotating days and nights as a new grad. Starting pay is 26.10

    Great health benefits from what I read and heard from the facility.

    I got the job right on the spot and I accepted.
