I'm a new grad. My friend got me an interview at a hospital where she works in HR. The recruiter called me today to talk briefly and set up an interview in-person. He started off by telling me the hourly pay rate, asking me which shift I preferred, talked about the orientation process, and when I would start.
I'm just wondering if this is typical for a pre-interview phone call, or if I should be pretty excited because they're likely to hire me? They do have a number of positions open and have recently started hiring new grads. My friend is well-liked there.
Opinions/experience? This is the first time I've ever gotten a call about a 'real' job so I have no idea if that's standard procedure or what.
