Hey! I’ve answered all questions they asked(3ppl). But it was quick compare to a person they interviewed prior me . How about you?

I felt like they didn’t ask me very many questions as I’d expected or prepared for? Kinda weird

Hey! I’m not sure. I feel like I did well on most of the questions, but they asked one question about dealing with peer pressure in the work place that threw me off. 

I’m not sure I nailed it, but I also don’t think I did terrible? So hard to know!

For future people reading this thread to prep, basically what the process is like is that they sit everyone in a big room. Multiple tables with different units interview applicants all in the same room. Extremely stress inducing environment. 

I ended up arriving 45 minutes early. They still called me a little over an hour after my scheduled interview time. My technique had been to say med/surg general was my top choice, since I knew tele was competitive. It ended up being that a lot of people picked general med surg; I was interviewed by urology/plastic surgery, which was the third choice I wrote down, but tbh is actually more interesting to me than regular med surg. 

I was interviewed by three people. I was asked maybe 10 or so questions. There was the obvious tell me about yourself question. The rest were sort of situational stuff. Stuff like “ you walk in and a patient can’t breath, what do you do?”  Asked me about a few common meds as well as labs to monitor. 

I felt I did well on most of the questions, but as I said earlier, they asked sort of a random one about standing up to peer pressure, and I felt like I sort of stumbled through my answers. I also tried to be really friendly and enthusiastic, but the people who interviewed me were more reserved so hopefully I didn’t come off fake. They also could definitely tell I was really nervous. 

Well, that’s my experience. I walked out feeling bad because I wanted to nail it and didn’t feel I did. Now that I’ve reflected a bit I feel I did okay, but there’s definitely some questions I wish I’d handled differently.

Now I feel even more nervous since they asked me about one med, couple of behavioral questions, and few things I am proud of in my resume ... that’s it. Even though I feel like I did well, the interview last about 15-20 min... 👀🙀🤞🏻

I think the different units all had different interview styles! Cause mine didn’t even really look at my resume or ask me any questions about it.
