    Hi everyone--
    Sorry for butting into this thread, but I got excited when I found this thread today and meeting other newbies at LAC USC. I actually interviewed a looong time ago for ICU-- interviewed and was offered the position same day August 6. I passed medical and background check a looong time ago-- but the recruiters told me they're still waiting for the positions to be passed, and have been reluctant to even give me a start date, so I've been holding my breath since mid august to even get a start date
    Anyway, nice meeting all of you and hope to do so in person really soon
    Congrats on receiving an offer and completing the checks! I hope it isn't too long before you receive a start date. Was ICU the only department you interviewed with? Welcome to the thread, this has been a good resource for those of us trying to go through the long process with county!

    Volunteerpioneer, welcome and congrats! Unfortunately I found another thread on here where a girl was hired on November 2010 and I think she responded in March or April 2011 and had not started yet. Due to extensive background checks and the budget problems, it's taking longer to receive a start date. Hang in there, hopefully you get word soon!

    Hi Volunteer! Thank you for the head's up! I'm waiting to get call re. livescan then onto the health check part. Did that part take long for you? I hope we get start dates soon! I'm looking forward to it! But yes, I was told about the budget being the last hurdle, so hope they get $ approval quick. Nice to meet you too

    I'm butting in three I guess. hehe. I interviewed Thursday morning (service exam) and there were a handful of people going in to sign their papers. Mostly from Peds, I overheard from Mike (?) that they're going to formally start on October. Looks like they're swamped with applicants eh? hoping new jobs for everyone!

    Oh wow!! So it sounds like the hiring process is going much more quickly for county hospitals than it used to. Congratulations, and good luck!!

    Here was my experience with LAC+USC: I filled out the online app in February and got a letter in March saying to call them to set up an interview. The first interview was in March and I was told I would find out if I passed within 4 weeks. The questions were situational and behavioral type questions. I actually found out I passed about 8 weeks later (they told me they were behind or something so it was taking awhile). Anyway, I called them every week after I found out I passed to see if they were hiring. They ended up calling me in July for a NICU interview. I interviewed for the NICU on July 26th and got hired that same day. I then went through the fingerscan and physical and now my start date is tomorrow!!! Good luck to everyone. I'm a new grad. They are hiring a lot of RNs right now!
