Anyone else get a call from a Nurse Recruiter at Virginia Hospital Center?

  1. Has anyone else recently gotten a call from Virginia Hospital Center. They called yesterday and my phone didn't ring. I got the voicemail and it was delayed an hour. I called back today and spoke to a nurse recruiter. Wondering if anyone else out there is in the same boat as me

    Hi, I recently heard from a recruiter and was wondering if you interviewed with them yet?

    Ditto here - I just heard from a recruiter. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will be called in for an interview

    How much weight does the initial nurse recruiter call hold? I was totally blindsided and didn't know they were going to ask me questions that I actually had to think about!

    i know im weeks late. but im in the same situation right now. i received a call from a vhc recruiter and i got a voicemail. phone didnt ring. i called back and got asked all these questions. i was taken a little by surprise. anybody know what the next step would be or if they only call people that they're really interested in? she told me to wait a week or 2 for a call back.

    hello RN_EV, so did you ever hear from Virginia hospital center? I am in the same boat. i spoke to a nurse recruiter and she told me to wait for a call in one or two weeks. If you interviewed, could you please share how the interview process was? thanks

    wondering if you ever heard from VHC...and went through the interview process? Wondering what happened, if you accepted the position?

    I interviewed yesterday, with HR and the floor manager, and accepted a position for an RN residency this afternoon! I didn't even expect it! It was a very laid back interview. I put my application in a few weeks ago. The new VERY excited!!

    @Worf, any information on the two year contract there or what it entails?
  12. by   worf
    Two year contract is basically trying to promote nurse retention. I do not have many details as of now...The RN fellowship orientation is 12 wks; after the first year an increase in pay...Sorry I don't have much information.

    Hello! Was your interview in person or a phone interview? I have a phone interview coming up and I'm extremely nervous!

    I worked at VHC for a year and left due to my husband's job. BE CAREFUL SIGNING THE CONTRACT!!!! They promise you 12 weeks of training but fail to give you the training. I was under the impression this was breaking the contract first. A year and a half after leaving to join my husband in another state I receive a letter saying I owe them $6,000 by the end of this month or they will send me to collections. No payment plan either!!!!! I attempted to call and spoke with everyone up the chain but they refused to budge even though they didn't hold up their end of the bargain. They take your last paycheck and all your PTO--which is only paid out 50%. They will not hire you unless you sign the contract. I thought it would not be a problem, since no one else would hire new grads and I had no reason to think I would not be in the area 2 years. Little did I know that life was going to happen...I met my husband, we got married and jobs moved us to another state. BE WARNED! I will NEVER sign another contract again and I urge you all to really think it over before you do the same.
