mount sinai hiring process...?

  1. Hi all! I had an interview at the mount sinai hospital at Dec 8th and got an email which said "We would like to make you an offer. We will need the references to move forward. such and such..." at Dec 11th. I've done reference last week and waiting for being checked. How long does it take from an interview to actually sign the contract? I can't feel relaxed until i officially sign the form...(I'm afraid whether they cancel job offer). Any ideas?

    Congratulations on the job offer!!! I felt like my process moved pretty quickly only because they wanted me to join the Dec. 4th orientation. I was offered the position on a Friday along with the link to add my references. I got the actual offer email the following Tuesday, which I accepted super fat haha. After that you'll get a bunch of emails with details on the onboarding process.

    I think that all of your references need to be in before they email you the offered letter to sign.

    Best of luck!!!

    Ah congrats! I recently accepted an offer there in November and will be starting in January. I'm a new grad!

    Here was my timeline -
    1) I interview
    2) Got a call from HR the same day I left telling me that they would like to move forward with the process and basically offering me the job but I just needed all my references completed first
    3) I made sure all my references were completed within a week and at the one week mark, I got a call from HR again officially offering me the job!
    4) Right after we talked on the phone she emailed all the onboarding information, links to sign the electronic offer, etc.

    So overall, it took me about one week exactly from my interview date to get a written and signed offer! What floor will you be on? Do you know your start date?

    Hey @embrooklyn! How has the orientation process been?

    I'm so excited to start! Did they tell you how to order scrubs and everything at orientation? Do they come in quickly?

    Congrats ! If you don't mind, which position did you apply for? Are there any positions specifically for New Grad?

    Orientation has been going great. You do two weeks of classroom training and then you go to your unit. You'll get your schedule for those first two weeks emailed to you after you get cleared.

    I've heard that there's a med math test you have to take. Is that true? Can you tell me how hard it is and what you did to prepare/pass?

    Yea it's a pharmacology exam that you take week 2 of orientation. They give you a site that'll help you study for the exam. It includes side effects, med math, contraindications, and some other stuff.

    Hey! congratulations on the interview and job offer! I am a new graduate nurse looking in NYC, I am wondering how long it took you to hear back from the hospital once you applied? and did you just apply online?

    Thanks for replying! Did you find it really difficult? I'm just nervous because I heard you could lose your job if you don't pass! ):

    It took a week to get in contact with a recruiter and another week to schedule an interview

    You get another chance if you don't pass the first time. It's more basic/general. Nothing too specific. You'll be fine. Just study the most common drugs used. Granted I didn't know everything that was on the test but I didn't find it to be that difficult.
