Stony Brook's Hiring Process
- 1Mar 5, '13 by tigralvovnaI am a new grad and recently went on an interview at Stony Brook Medical Center. I was wondering if anyone went through the hiring process. How long did it take to hear back from the recruiter or nurse manager after the interview? And if you did accept the position, what was your experience going through the Residency Program?
- 1Mar 6, '13 by Paws2peopleTheir hiring process takes a month or so. Because it is a state job, there is more "red tape" to go through. I heard back from HR after the interview immediately, but I knew from their attitudes that the job was mine while I was being interviewed . After they hire you with the contingency offer, then they run the background check. After that is the medical exam, then you go to orientation. All this took a month or so. Good luck!

The office manager told me it can take up to two months, they have to post the jobs online to give other people a chance to apply and by law have to interview everyone who meets the minimum qualifications, if i understand it right. Did you interview for an ED position?
- 0Mar 10, '13 by bebbercornI applied for ED, the interview seemed to go well and she brought me to the floor to interview with that team as well. (I interviewed with Anna). She mentioned salary and said "If I say everything looks good, it looks good." However, she told me it takes a while and not to get discouraged if I don't hear back in a week... I guess I'll try to be patient. How did your interview go? I found that they were all really welcoming and it was pretty easy compared to others I've been on.
- 0Mar 10, '13 by tigralvovnaMy experience was very similar. Everyone was very pleasant and the interview with the recruiter as well as the nurse manager and the floor staff was very laid back. They didn't ask questions that never seem to have a correct answer: "what is your weakness?"
Did the recruiter tell you when the orientation would be if you got the position? I was told April 11th.
- 0Mar 11, '13 by bebbercornShe said that the orientation starts April 11th and if all of the paperwork wasn't in there was another orientation on May 9th. I agree the questions were not typical ones which made the flow of conversation really nice, she actively participated and listened and shared her own experiences. Perhaps I'll meet you at orientation, lol, in the best case scenario. In the meantime I keep applying, and fyi there is a career fair in Melville on Wednesday, it's on nurse.com if you are interested.
- 0Mar 11, '13 by bebbercornI initially applied for the fellowship, as I've been out on maternity leave, but she called me for a regular position with a 4 month orientation. The recruiter just called, I apparently need one more letter of recommendation, siiiiigh, the suspense never ends with this waiting game!
