    I would consider that anyone bothering to provide a response might be saying something bland and inocuous to avoid possible problems from your end. I would not rely on getting an objective report.

    Ok this is totally not in response to the topic above but it's about me showing up to my RN job interview a day early I am worried now that they may take this against me. Any advice on what I can say to the managers on my actual interview day??? I feel so bad :{

    What's the big deal? You didn't miss it, you showed up early. Why would they take it against you? Just say "sorry, I thought yesterday was the 16th" or whatever.

    I don't mean for that to come off that brusque but it seriously shouldn't matter. Who hasn't thought they worked on x day and realized it was their day off!

    I can't say either way if you would receive feedback and/or how to ask for it. For your next interview, I would suggest reading: http://allnurses.com/nursing-intervi...st-748905.html ("How To Answer the Most Common Interview Questions" on the Interview forum of the Careers section). There are three articles with several questions that you may run into. I absolutely despise interviews...but looking over these questions and preparing a general answer really helped me in my interview.

    Hopefully you get a response from the employer, and good luck in future interviews!

    interviews are my thing...

    You need to be
    -confident, go in like you know the person you're talking to
    -smile smile smile, say thank you, please
    -google the top questions most interviewers ask and copy and paste them, then write your answer under them, you can even google the correct answers.
    -try to guess anything that you think they might ask and prepare for it.
