Hello i just applied to the residency program at piedmont hospital for the february 2013 program. Does anyone know how much the pay is starting. And the interview process. The position shows all of the units in one one posting. So do they ask you at the interview where u would prefer. Also im moving from florida to ga does anyone know any good area to stay thats affordable for a new grad near or not too far from the hospital. I will be new to georgia. Thanks

From what I heard, the starting pay is $23.55 with differentials for evenings, nights, and weekends. It's something like $4.00. I don't work there, so I can't say for sure.
As far as living close to there, it is quite difficult to find something affordable in the immediate area. If you go north on I-85 about 2-3 exits (Cheshire Bridge, N. Druid Hills, Clairmont) you can find some affordable areas going east on either road. And, it's a decent part of town. Depending on how far away from I-85 it is, you are looking at a 10-20 minute drive to Piedmont (definitely not bad considering Atlanta's disaster in the mornings). The commute should be easy at most start times. 7p could be bad though as traffic builds up around 5p-6p headed downtown.
Hope this helps.

I mailed in my application and resume today. Trying to be optimistic but the jobs market is TIGHT here in Georgia. Just moved here from Ohio this past June and I can't get an interview anywhere as a new grad. All the people I graduated with in Cleveland area are already working!

I also just moved to Ga but from Miami, my classmates are having a tough time down there. I sure wasnt expecting such a tough time hearing how badly nurses are needed. I get so frustrated sometimes. Hopefully my future job calls me soon

Hey everyone. I just received a phone call this morning about interviewing on Monday October 29th for a Cardiovascular position. I live in Clarksville TN though so I'm going to make the drive down there for it. I'm super excited/nervous/happy to have heard something back. This job hunt has been almost defeating. Good luck to you all!! Has anyone heard what the interview questions are like?

Congrats girlygirl the only thing I've heard is they give you a medication calculation test and if you fail that the interview stops there. When did you send in your application? I want a call too
