    What part of your work brings you the most stress?

      How to Answer

      Stress can often be a regular part of the day-to-day work experience, especially in healthcare. Your interviewer at Kaiser Permanente fully understands that any candidate that they interview experiences stress in their work. What they're looking to hear by asking this question is that you have the ability to manage your stress in a healthy and productive manner. Be sure to talk openly to your interviewer about which areas of your career are the most stressful. Ensure that your answer does not include a factor that would make you appear unfit for the job that you are interviewing for and reiterate how you effectively handle this stressor in your work.

      Ryan's Answer

      "The part of my career that brings me the most stress is when the schedule is running behind due to many different factors. I like to be on time with my schedule to ensure that our patients are assisted properly. When the inevitable happens and the schedule runs behind, I don't hesitate to gather the troops and pull together in a team effort."

      Ryan's Answer

      "To be completely transparent, I probably bring myself the most stress because of my innate desire to be the best. I strive for perfection too often, which causes unnecessary stress for myself. I manage this by focusing my energy on productive activities that are good for my work."

      Ryan's Answer

      "In all honesty, the thought of a poor outcome with a patient is what stresses me the most. Early in my career, I probably worried too much about the fear of failure with my patients. With some great advice from some mentors in my role, I have harnessed that fear into the ability to go above and beyond for my patients to help ensure that I've done my part to create a great health outcome for them."

      "Patient adherence, the idea of patients, not taking their medications like they are supposed to, and affecting their health, can be stressful. By talking to them, explaining how important it is for them to take their prescriptions daily, and offer them auto-fill on their prescriptions, and enroll them on ready reminder will help them take better care of their health."

      Rachelle's Answer

      I can see how it would be stressful when you care for your patients' success so much! It sounds as though you do everything possible to ensure your patients are set up for success.

      "It can be stressful at times being shorthanded, but I always no matter what, make the best of it and work hard."

      Rachelle's Answer

      It's great that you make the best of things and work hard, regardless of the stress levels or being short-handed.
