Hello PACU RNs',?

I have an upcoming interview for a FT PACU RN dayshift position.... I am a RN, BSN nurse with 8 years of Cardiac Step-down Unit experience... WE receive patients from CT surgery: Mitral Valves, Aortic Valves, TAVRs, EP, Cath lab and the overflow from the ED... I just want to transition to the PACU were I can see a variety of surgical procedures and take care of those patients... 

Can anyone give me any idea on what type of questions the team would ask me??? I really want this position and want to answer the questions properly.... Thank you!!?

How was your interview?  Are you now working in PACU?

I'm an ICU RN wishing to move into PACU and have an interview in a couple of days.  I'm told to expect some questions, but unaware of content.
