How did your interview go?
Thanks for asking.
When I first arrived they gave me paperwork to fill out and an exam to take. I took that and passed. They asked me to wait a few minutes while the interviewer was looking over my paperwork. Then she brought me back to her office and we talked. All went well. She told me what she could pay me per hour, but it was less than what I make if I were working in the hospital, I tried to see if she could go a little higher, but she said she couldn't. At the Cosmetic Surgical Center I get paid really well. When I worked as a Premium PRN Nurse at a LTC facility I got paid $36/hr, which they interviewer said they must have been desperate for the to pay that. I just laughed and I told her that they were not desperate, that is what they pay their Premium PRN Nurses because we have a commitment to work one weekend a month and the a few hours during the week and fill in when needed. They had pay rates for PRN, Premium PRN and Regular FT RN at that place. We were a big help to the LTC that is why they paid us this, not because they were desperate. I think she did not want me to believe that the were desperate when I asked her if she could increase it some. The hospital setting I got paid around $38.56 (includes differential I used to only work nights) The position I applied for is a PRN position, one weekend sat/sun commitment per month, don't get weekend differential only if you work a third weekend each month and on the third and fourth weekend a month you will get a $2.00 differential. But not for the first or second weekend. I thought that was a little strange. Only because I am use to evening shift differential or weekend differential anytime you work it in the hospital. But it is extra money coming in. So she offered me the hourly rate right, then she said that she cannot higher me, but she can offer me the hourly rate, I should hear back from them 1 to 2 weeks from now after they do the professional reference checks and then they will get back to me and they head person at the center I would like to work at will meet with me and then determine if they want to offer me the position or not. So we will see. I thought if they were telling me what they could pay me that they would be offering me the job, but this is not the case. I passed the test. And they did contact some of the professional references. The doctor they contacted told me they text him, emailed him and called him about 50 times in one day (we were in the operating room as this was happening). So I should hear something by the end of next week or the following week. The cosmetic surgery place where I work has asked if I could start coming in on Fridays and seeing all the post op patients and have reps come in so I can start giving Botox and Juvaderm...So we are going to discuss that next week and pay. It will be different from the OR. They pay that patient first offered is good, but I am just used to making more that's all. I just was hoping to find out the same day. I drove 2 hours to get to the corporate office.
We will see. I will let you know as soon as I know something. And tell you how it is if I start working there. You are to wear casual wear (Navy or white pants) (turtle neck or collared shirt) (white shoes and white lab coat if your cold).
