    I don't know HR puts employees through a dump process of hiring. Those questions were formulated by psychologists and other so-called experts. But you in order to WIN, you have to play their game- find out more about those questions, rehearse the answers and be the actor during the interview. If you have earned your license, you know that once you get the nursing job, you know how to do your job. It's easy. Play their game. Tell them what they want to hear in order to get past them. You have to out-smart them to get the job if you have a family to feed
    Some interviewers really don't care. You are just one of the many applicants who are qualifies so some interviewer use the I-like-you, I-just-don't like you approach. It's personal and unacceptable but it happens ALL the time. Pick up your cues from the interviewers personality. A jovial interviewer who did not have straight A's will not like you very much if you boast your 4.0 GPA hahaha

    I just had the Talent Test phone interview done yesterday. It took me about 40 minutes to finish the test. There were about oh, may be 20 behavior questions. One of the questions asked:" If you like something that is belong to your friend, would you ask for it?" I said "No, usually I am the one who would be asked to give up things!" Do you think that is a good answer?

    Quote from Angels_wearScrubs
    Well I'm guessing you come out in your tap dance uniform and sing while you dance a jig. Then in the next round you put on you pagent dress and are asked a question...something along the lines of "Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?" Then you come out in your swimsuit and run a mock code while showing off your assets as the Doctors rate you on a 1-10 scale.

    But seriously....I have never heard of this type of interview.

    Hi OCNRN63,

    The Talent Plus telephone interview is for people who are applying for a new job or applying for transferring to different job within the system. Nowaday, I would say all the job candidates need to go through this personality interview before the real face to face interview. I heard if you don't pass the Talent Plus interveiw then you'll have no job because you won't be offer a face to face interview at all!!!~~ I'm nervous!!!! What do you think about my answer to that question?

    It all sounds like a bunch of new age fad quackery to me.
