Does anybody have any input about working as an RN at Pitt Memorial in Greenville? I've been interested in working there but attend school in another part of the state and have not been within Pitt before. Non-nursing employees... Read More

    Hey TIGERLILIE,

    This is my first time using this site. I noticed we are both out of state new grads looking into Pitt's residency! My interview is on the third of December! I am also super nervous. Which units are you interviewing for? I am interviewing for the MICU and CIU. Did you have a phone interview with the managers first? I wasn't told that the in-person interview was going to be a "shadow" too. Sounds like the staff there are really awesome though. Good luck to you!!!

    What exactly are PCMH rates for new grads (especially ICU if anyone has this info), and do they offer proper benefits? I'd like to work there, as it's close to my home, but I've herd about $20 an hour and 8 days of vocation per year... How true is that?

    I interviewd for MIU ( Medical Step-Down ICU). Yes, I had a phone interview first and then shadow the unit, which help me get a feel of the enviornment. The hospital is huge , but very inviting. Absolutely, felt connected. Long story short, I was offer the position and I am still soaking up the news. I am so grateful for this opportunity. Wish you the best on your interview-- stay confident and go in there with an open mind. It helped me

    Hi Anatasia83,

    They take care of the nurses and benefits shows as well. Check out their website. Word of advice let them ( once your offer a position) tell you about payment rate for new grads and vacation time. Wish you the best on your journey.

    So glad you got it! I got an offer from the Medical ICU! I am also still soaking it in. I guess we will be in classes together . Did you get your offer in writing yet? I just got the phone call Monday. I hope to have it all on paper soon. It is going to be a big move, but it will be so worth it Congratulations, and I look forward to meeting you in class next Feb.

    Hi nathRN,

    The phone interview was decent. However, I have heard people had interview with two people on the phone. However, it is not bad at all. Just make sure you listen and ask question. Never worked their before, I went down to shadow the unit and it was beautiful, but very big. Wish you the best!!!! You got this!!!

    Hello nathRN,

    The manager that called me was very friendly on the phone. I was still very nervous though. Be prepared for clinical scenario questions too. Best of luck! Are you a new grad or out of state?
