yes, 1100 people applied for 20 positions. They were only interviewing 85. So we have 1 in 4 chance of getting hired after this first interview.
They stressed that the positions would be on a variety of med-surg floors, nights, 5 eight hour shifts per week, half will be benefited and half will not (at least it is paid, I heard Stanford new residency programs were unpaid for a year, 40 hours per week!), $50/hr. WH wants a 2 year commitment.
The training will be class time and then floor time, and class time and floor time, then class time, then we will be released. 2-3 months of training.
I was surprised I got an interview. This was the first interview I have had-- I have been applying for jobs since March. So it was nice to finally get some recognition after filling out electronic application after application and not hearing any word. If we get invited to the second interview next week, they could let us know less than 24 hours in advance.
