I interviewed for a position as an RN at a low security in Youngstown. One part of the facility is a US Marshal Service and the other part is Federal Bureau of Prisons. It is a CCA facility and the pay is phenomenal. I interviewed for a FT and PRN position. Not only was I the first candidate to interview for the positions, but this was also my very first interview as a new graduate! The questions asked during the interview were mainly based on inmate behaviors, and how I would react. I was asked about 12 questions by a panel of 3: HR, Nurse manager, and Clinical Manager. Here's some questions I remember: Why did you choose corrections as a career? Do you have experience in corrections or are you familiar with corrections? How do you handle push-back? During the nursing shortage, what changes would you like to see take place? Are you familiar with electronic medical records? What would you do if you noticed the narcotic count was short? Name a skill you taught yourself that you didn't learn by trade or in school. At your job has anyone asked you to bend the rules, if so what did you do? If you noticed an inmate calling your co-worker a name or being disrespectful what would you do? If you had a lot to do and minimal time to do it what do you do? At the end I had the opportunity to discuss anything I wanted to about myself that wasn't already mentioned. I am still waiting for results. One more person has to interview on 4/4/14. HR said that if chosen then I would have to go through 2 more interviews, one with an investigator, and then one more after that. I believe she said you basically go through homeland security. They really dug into my business. I received copies of everything in the mail. They know how much you paid for you house, any public files, and an extensive credit check, and background check, etc. A 2 week academy for safety training for the job is in June. And 3 weeks of training after that (1 week one each shift). The FT position I applied for is for afternoon shift charge nurse. I felt very confident during the interview, and I felt it went well. It took about an hour including the tour of the medical area. I took nothing in but my license and car keys. Not only did I have to go through the metal detector, but I had to also remove my shoes upon entering. I was surprised of this because I toured a supermax facility and never had to take off my shoes! I should know something more about the position by next week. HR told me I would receive notice even if I wasn't chosen. Thank goodness for that. I am glad they at least don't leave a person waiting!
