Difficult Interview

Staff RN Interview

Staff RN
Greenwood, IN (US)

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in January 2011.

Interview Details There is an online application with a follow up recruiter phone call. The initial interview is with the nurse manager and a second interview with a panel. The atmosphere is casual but tenuous.

Interview Question – The panel interview asks the typical questions, yet they also want something personal. They asked, "What is the worst mistake you have ever made?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They have a set salary schedule and your experience determines rate of pay

Licensed Practical Nurse Interview

Licensed Practical Nurse
Elkhart, IN (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in June 2014.

Interview Details I had two detailed interviews, supervisors put all the positives and negatives on the line so you knew what you were walking into. I liked the honesty the most, it was even said "no this is not an easy place to work but we are all here for the patients". I would rather hear the truth then false promises

Interview Question – I think the questions were standard as every nursing facility but the questions did point out there strengths as well as the things they are working on and I met with both the ADON and several days later the DON and both were very nice and friendly. They asked questions about what pay I expected, what shift I wanted, explained why they schedule the way they do...to remain fair!   View Answer

LVN Interview

LVN
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in April 2014.

Interview Details I was contacted by a recruiter regarding a position I had applied for for an interview time. First interview seemed to go well. Moved on to second interview with peers (on shift job would have been for. After interview it took three weeks to notify me that I wasn't offered a job because my lack in acute care experience. I shouldn't have been pushed on to the second portion of the interview if this was the case, and it shouldn't have taken three weeks to notify me that I was not considered related to lack of acute care experience. Disappointed with the professionalism in the interview process and the length of time to notify of decision.

Wound Care Nurse-RN Interview

Wound Care Nurse-RN
North Chicago, IL (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kindred Healthcare in April 2014.

Interview Details I must admit, this was the weirdest interview that I have ever been to. The interviewer never looked me in the eye or looked over my resume and letters of recommendations. To my amazement, she answered a phone call during my interview. The interviewer barely asked me any questions about myself and spoke about herself or the company. She complained about how the healthcare benefits were no the best. After asking the interviewer about how she liked working at Kindred she stated that, “it is challenging”. During the tour the supply room was messy and the staff was not welcoming.
