Hillcrest Renal Floor and Interview Advice

  1. 0
    I applied to about 80 jobs and the day after I got a call to interview at Hillcrest on the renal floor. I'm super excited! Does anyone have any words of advice to offer about the floor or interviewing?

    I had a friend that interviewed there today! But she didn't really have any questions because she was a previous employee. Are you a new grad or experienced RN?

    I actually interviewed there. A couple people told me not to work there. What is the drawback?

    I apologize because I hate 'warning' people about things (it makes me feel guilt for swaying decisions). However, this is a HORRIBLE place for a new grad, they will work you like a dog, give you way more than you should ever have as a new nurse, and give you little resources. They are constantly short staffed and the whole hospital knows it's the worst floor there. Unfortunately, if it is the only job prospect you're looking at and you need a job... It's a great way to get your foot in the door at HMC. 10 and 7 are better, even the heart hospital is a great place for a new nurse to get a great start (hospital values the heart floors much more). Hope this information helps.
