1.
Lee Memorial Health System has a diverse workforce. When have you worked amongst a diverse group of people?
Are you accustomed to working with a very large or diverse team of individuals? Assure the interviewer that you can handle an environment that offers diversity. Even better, give an example of being able to embrace diversity in the workplace.

Darby's Answer #1
"I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my career, including my time in University. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers me unique learning opportunities."
Darby's Answer #2
"I am so glad you pointed out your need for diversity at Lee Memorial Health System. I greatly value diversity. I grew up in a fairly homogeneous town in Montana. When I hit my 20's, it was so important to me to learn about other cultures. I worked with community volunteer organizations in Peru, inner-city Chicago, and Russia."
2.
Lee Memorial Health System was initially looking for someone with 5 years' experience in a similar role. Considering you have just 2 years' experience, would you be willing to accept this position at a lower salary?
Are you willing to earn your way up if the interviewer does not want to offer you top compensation? Discuss with the interviewer what you would expect for compensation if offered this position.

Darby's Answer #1
"I would be happy to earn my way to the top compensation level if required. I do assure you that, despite my being shy of experience by a couple of years, I am a top performer and you would not be disappointed in my performance."
Darby's Answer #2
"I understand I do not quite meet the qualifications of experience you are looking for and am willing to be compensated in adjustment to that fact. However, I do look forward to proving my worth to Lee Memorial Health System in hopes to be considered for the median salary for the role."
3.
Lee Memorial Health System recognizes that being a healthcare provider is rewarding, but can also be very stressful at times. Can you share a situation that was difficult for you and how you worked through it?
The interviewer recognizes that, while being a healthcare provider has its benefits, it can often be trying at times. This question gives you the chance to show how your vulnerability meets your strengths. Having balance between the two is a sought-after characteristic of healthcare providers. Being willing to open up to the interviewer about a situation that was emotional for you and how you were able to cope will show him what can be expected of you when you are faced with a difficult situation in the future.

Darby's Answer #1
"I agree that being a healthcare provider has its stressful situations. One case that I will never forget occurred when I worked pediatrics. We had a four year old child that was admitted due to having seizures. After further testing, it was discovered that the child had a brain tumor. The tumor was very advanced and she lost her life because of it. That time was very emotional for everyone on the care team. Fortunately, we had a good team leader who gave us an opportunity to talk with her and one another about the overwhelming grief that we felt. I have found that talking through emotions is a great way to work through any unresolved grief."
Darby's Answer #2
"There have been several situations throughout my career that have been stressful. I think one of the most stressful things for most healthcare providers is that we have so many people counting on us and often feel like we don't have enough time. I usually try to do the least tasking jobs first so that I can free the majority of my time for things that may take more time to accomplish. Being able to cross things off of the 'to do' list is a huge stress reliever for me."
4.
Why do you think you will be successful in this role with Lee Memorial Health System?
Rather than just sharing how you have gone above and beyond expectations in the past, focus on how your qualities will help you to meet and exceed expectations with Lee Memorial Health System. Discuss the reasons why will you be great at this job. Talk about your qualifications and skills that will help you to do this job well. If you can, match your strengths to the requirements outlined in the job description.

Darby's Answer #1
"I know I will be successful in this role because I have been working in this industry for five years with great training and mentorship. I have a solid understanding of X, Y, and Z (skills listed in the job description). Also, I have all of my updated certifications as outlined in your job description. I am well-prepared for this next step in my career."
Darby's Answer #2
"I believe my success with Lee Memorial Health System will come from having all of the hard skills that you are looking for, whether learned in school or gained through work experience. I know all the key players in this region and stay informed of best practices."
5.
3,800 Volunteers and Auxiliary personnel worked 397,568 hours of service for Lee Memorial Health System in 2017. Have you ever done volunteer work?
Although offering volunteer services is not a requirement for employment, willingness to give of your time and resources to others without compensation shows the interviewer that you have a sincere desire to serve others. If you have volunteered, share a positive experience you had as a volunteer. If you have not volunteered, it is not necessary to embellish your answer. Stating that you have not volunteered previously is not going to disqualify you from employment.

Darby's Answer #1
"I love to volunteer! A group of ladies from my church volunteer at a soup kitchen close to my home once a month. There is nothing like the feeling of giving to someone that you know cannot give back to you! Are there opportunities for employees to volunteer through the hospital?"
Darby's Answer #2
"I have always wanted to volunteer during my off time, it seems like I have always had so many other things going on. If there are opportunities at Lee Memorial for employees to spend some time volunteering, I would definitely be interested in getting involved."
