Question for experienced nurses: do you broach the topic of benefits during an interview?
My DH works in a different industry and typically has 2-3 interviews for a job, so he usually discusses things like salary or benefits during the second or third interview, once he's already made a good impression and knows that an offer is coming. I think this is important for several reasons. I've had two nursing jobs and my most recent job has made it miserable to take any time off. Travelling is a huge part of my personal life and in the future, I'd like to know that my employer would be supportive of taking time off. I'm tired of working for companies that don't want to give you the vacation you earned and deserve. However, most of the time in nursing there is only one interview and I don't want to come off as money-hungry by bringing this up during the interview. Then by the time they call to make the job offer, it's too late to discuss something like that.
