Interview

First interview is more like a pre-screen. The recruiter will ask some general questions about your background and availability. The second interview is more in-depth and, if virtual, is recorded so the department manager can watch it. Second interview is all behavioral questions.

Interview

I received a follow-up email the day after applying from an employee supporting the hiring manager/ team. VM has streamlined their process due to the high demand for call center support. The interviewer was thoughtful and focused throughout the interview. Unfortunately, because the interviewer was removed from the hiring team, I wasn't able to have all of my questions answered thoroughly.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time where a customer or patient had an unreasonable request. How did you handle that?

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Virginia Mason (United States) in Mar 2020

Interview

Fairly easy process, took a couple weeks from applying online to doing a phone interview with the nurse recruiter, then next a video review with the hiring unit managers. From there I waited about two weeks until I received an offer for a position that begins in late summer. Overall it was an fairly painless process and my recruiter, Jill, was amazing. She was so kind and answered all of my questions and is part of the reason I took the job. If the other staff are half as nice and guiding to new grads I'm sure I'll love this hospital!
