Aloha to all.
I'm an RN in Oahu but have been applying to any position there is to be offered, I can't be picky with what job I want since the job market for nurses is terrible. Anyways, I submitted an application to a senior living May of this year but was called-in for an interview last Monday for the CNA position I applied. The interview went smoothly, where they asked me easy questions like "Why did you choose this career?, or Tell me something about yourself and Tell me a conflict you had with a co-worker and how did you solve it?" I got lucky I had these questions asked since I prepared my answers for this kind of questions. The HR was even amused to found out I'm a active RN license holder but applied for a CNA position, she even told me that she might consider me for one of the RN position they would have once I proven myself capable of the role for their facility.
I just got the call yesterday that they want me to be on their team and would love if I can start first week of August. The HR talked about the probationary period, salary and orientation/shadowing schedules for next week and my official work would start on August 6 with a 12hour shift. What I forgot to ask the HR on the phone, if my 12hr shift be paid as overtime or will still be a regular hourly rate. My dad said that its a law that once a person worked more than 8hrs he/she will be paid an overtime pay, but I have no idea if this would imply to CNA and Nurses as well. Can anyone help me out?
