    Not sure for Olive View. At LAC/USC, on the first day, I went to HR to sign paperwork & was given an orientation schedule. Now that I'm on the floor, I follow my preceptor's work schedule.

    I did not have experience prior to hire. It took about a month to get a unit interview after getting the eligibility letter. I was offered the job a month later & it took another 2 months b4 I actually started working. It's a long process. In addition to calling also send your resume & eligibility letter. Put your units of preference on the letter. Good luck & hope you get something soon.
