OK, first off - I am a student!! So nothing I say is official!! LOL
I live in Rochester and associate with ALot of Mayo employees. With that being said - Mayo KNOWS that they are the best around. Not only hospital, but the ONLY game in town as far as a job. So for every ONE person actually interviewing, they have about 50 hoping to get in. SO THEY ARE CHOOSEY!!! I AM NOT DEFENDING THIS!!!! That is why I will MOVE as SOON as I finish nursing school
. Mayo trains the students for MAYO.
Yes, I am jaded - Mayo has such a big head that i am finding alot of the people who work there feel they are better than anyone else too!!
My neighbor is a Dr there and he actually told me that they have to be so "GO MAYO" and out going that he becomes intreverted (sp?) at home. It is a big reputation to keep up.
I did apply for a PCA position and when the interview was over, the head nurse walked me to the front, we hade what I thought was a nice conversation, but I was told that I did not get the job because I was too conversational and would probably talk too much.
So, good luck!! I wil get off my soap box now!! LOL
