I went to a supposed "information session," which morphed into an interview with a medication test at a LTC/Long Term Care Rehab. I got through the med test hurdle, because that's who they decided to interview. I was there with three other nurses, and we were all interviewed together. It resembled "20 questions," and I was the most vocal (and honest, lol
). Needless to say, I was a new grad LPN, but, according to the response of that "I like to advocate for myself" from me elicited the response "Hey, you need to learn to relax" as a parting message at the end of the interview, I swore I was not going to get the job. Ironically, I walked out of the facility and got a phone call from another Rehab Hospital, had a phone interview, stated the same "advocate" line, and landed the job.
I threw away the letter from the other place, I could care less if I got that job or not. I found out that particular faculty can be a train wreck; when I was at my senior rotation, I got a patient from that facility, and she was a train wreck in terms if care and needed a transfusion, she went from low response to talking, able to help move, turn, etc.
I'm sure if I took that job, I would've left that job within a week.
