    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Whitby, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Panel of 2 interviewers. You sit down and they welcome you and explain the hospitals feelings about recovery. They ask you a bunch of questions and the interview is scored out of 100, the candidate with the highest score "wins" the job.

    RPN's who are external are usually only considered for temporary jobs. Permanent jobs for RPN's are usually given to temporary employees or full-time staff who need to move to parttime. Once you get a temporary job it is fairly easy to become permanent.

    It's easier to get permanent part time as an external candidate if you are an RN.

    Full time jobs usually go to internal candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • What does recovery based care mean to you?
      What would you do if a client was smoking on the ward?
      What would you do if you found a client laying on the floor unresponsive?
