Should I go to the interview?

  1. I have been a nurse for almost 10 years and have had my fair share of interviews, so I know what to expect. But for some reason I feel weird about going to a scheduled interview at a Dr office....
    I had applied online through a job board. The job listing was a bit intimidating with the numerous BOLD print scattered throughout. Things like dont apply unless you can stay for 4 years or more, and requiring 10 years experience, have to be able to read and right at a college level, be able to do computer charting ect. I figured what the hay and applied anyways. I got the call back to do an interview. The office manager requested for me to bring some extra things to the interview like references (no biggie), to type up a list of schools attended specifying high school and nursing school, and to bring my LPN certificate so they can make a copy.
    I googled the Office/Dr as the Job listing didnt list Dr name or practice name, and the reviews are awful. Now I feel really weird about going to the interview, like it feels odd to me for some reason. Im not in a make or break situation I currently have a job (PRN) and was just looking for something for extra money.
    Should I go?

    I'm going to assume you're the victim of autocorrect.

    Frankly, I'd do the interview. You don't have to accept the position and you never know. It might be a great place to work.

    I'd go. At the very least you get to chuckle at the dysfunction. Or it may be that it's well run. I put about as much faith in online reviews of medical providers as I do some patient satisfaction survey comments with no context.

    I'd go to the interview. It's great practice in interviewing for when there's a job you really want. And if it's awful, just think what a great story it will be to share on one of those "Worst interview experience you ever had" threads.

    I have gotten something out of every interview that I have gone on, even if it is only the knowledge that I would never want to work for the employer who I just interviewed with.

    do you have so many job offers flowing through that you can afford to pick and choose which ones you want to follow through with?

    i say go, feel the place out, and if it doesn't jive with you, respectfully decline the position.

    who wrote those reviews that you read? if it were customers, grain of salt. you've been in this field long enough to know that if pts dont get their scripts for 300 pills of 50mg morphine theyre going to flip out haha

    and if it were former employees..grain of salt. bad blood between staff and management resulting in a bitter resignation.
