Great work Nurselex27! Congratulations to get interview done at first hill. I got a interview call from valley health for general med RN position yesterday. I tried calling Issaquah swedish for medical specialty but cudnt get nurse manager details. However I left my details with a staff nurse but nobody called me yet. Don’t mind me asking what you usually say when you call to hospital to ask for manger. I meant how you pitch in phone? I picked med Surg units.

Well the call went like this

I asked the operator for the unit

then when they answer I ask “hello can I speak to your manager?”

then when they ask “who’s calling ?”
I say “I’m a potential applicant just wanting to speak to the manager”

then they forward me

I didn’t get asked this question in my interview but I got asked

why do you want to work for this unit

describe a difficult coworker /family

describe a difficult patient

explain a time you made a mistake

explain a time where you didn’t agree with a manager

explain a time in clinical where you had to handle multiple tasks at once

what is your proudest moment in nursing school?

Thanks! Was this for the in-person interview or video?

I created my account for the video interview and saw that there are 17 questions!

How was the video interview ? It’s my first interview, so hoping I do ok. Thanks again 😀

It was an in person interview , also I hated the video interview and it took me 2+ hours to do because I kept messing up my answers but I’m sure you’ll do great!

Ahhhh ok! Were you able to re-record before you liked your response. Yikes, I may need to dedicate half a day for this.

You can re-record as many times as you like or up to 3 times. Something along those lines so don't worry about messing up the first recording. From what I remember, you get unlimited time to prep your answer. However most answers have to be under 3 minutes or so. Good luck

Yeah I re-recording my answer atleast 10x for each question so it’s definitely unlimited. I had to take a break and come back and finish it so I did it over the course of 2 days.

Hi!

I also applied to the Swedish March cohort and I got the email about being contacted to interview in 2-4 weeks for L&D. That was on December 3rd... and I haven’t heard anything. I also tried emailing back recruiters who literally won’t reply. It seems like a lot of you also have had this problem?
This process seems to all be a mess.. when I first applied and did my online interview, Peds and NICU (my preferred 2) wasn’t even an option and they added 2 days after I did my online interview. Also kinda angry because the recruiter said he would update my app because of that happening, but obviously didn’t. 🙃

Hi!

I checked my application status today and it said that they wanted more information and that they emailed me the details. However, I never received an email. I reached out in email to the RN residency. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what happened?

i had a lady named Leslie reach out to me through email about an interview , I can DM you her number/email if that helps , she’s the recruiter. I also would just call L&D because the hiring manager for NIcu was really surprised my first choice was NICU and I got a peds interview. I applied in December with the video interview and then didn’t hear until last week about an interview

Thank you for her information! However I applied to Postpartum and telemetry at their Issaquah hospital. How did you get the information for the recruiter at first hill? Did she reach out to you? How long did it take for her to reach out?

This is also what has happened! That’s how I noticed I had L&D for an interview and and not NICU which is my number one that was suppose to be updated

Did you end up getting an interview with NICU as well?
