White Memorial Medical Center 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.

Ryan'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."
Ryan's Answer #2
"I am so glad you pointed out your need for diversity at White Memorial Medical Center Inc. 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."

White Memorial Medical Center 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.

Ryan'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."
Ryan'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 White Memorial Medical Center Inc in hopes to be considered for the median salary for the role."
3.
Do you think it is possible to be a good team member, yet disagree with the leader?
The interviewer wants to know that you can be diplomatic in the workplace, even when you may not agree with your leader.

Show the interviewer that it is possible for you to be a good team member, yet disagree with the leader from time to time. Explain that you believe everyone is entitled to their own professional opinion, yet capable of maintaining respect for each other at the same time.

Show that even if you disagree with the final decision they make, you support the direction the team is heading.

Ryan's Answer #1
"I think that it is possible to be a great team member, even when disagreeing with the leader. It's all in how you maintain respect for each other despite the difference in opinion."
Ryan's Answer #2
"I believe that being a good team member is more about attitude than it is about compatibility. You do not need to agree with everyone 100% of the time, to be effective in your job."
4.
Here at White Memorial, we value the ability to provide compassionate care to our patients and visitors alike. What are ways that you provide compassionate care to those under your watch?
To best answer this question for your interviewer, make sure you hit on the important aspects of compassion: sympathy, empathy, kindness, sensitivity, warmth and love. As a professional in the healthcare industry, these things should come naturally to you and your ways of showing compassion will vary depending on your job. Talk about the little things you do for each patient and visitor that project a compassionate approach and talk about why these things are important.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As a Sonographer, I see a wide variety of patients that are referred by many different providers and I don't have a chance to build long-lasting relationships with my patients. Because of this, my first impression often make a big difference so I take the time to talk to my patients about what brings them to me and I also ask questions to try and get to know them a little better personally. This approach opens up my patients and puts them at ease in a relatively tense situation. As I scan them, I explain what I'm doing and what the images are projecting knowing that most people are interested. Once engaged, the patient becomes more relaxed and talkative as well."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Compassionate care came early to me in life being the oldest of five siblings and having a working mother and father. I was the primary caretaker for my younger brothers and sisters in sickness and in health and I've really tried to carry over compassionate care to my career as a primary care nurse. Digging back to my roots, I love the primary care realm of healthcare because I am able to build relationships with my patients. These positive relationships lead to compassionate relationships through warmth, kindness and empathy and I really find that my patients are able to work closely with me in providing care and treatments for their illnesses. If hired, you'll find quickly that my compassionate care reflects very well on my patients."

What is your greatest weakness?
Pick a weakness that is not a core skill for this position. You can be candid in your answer; recognizing that you aren't great at something and acknowledging your need to improve. Be sure to have an action plan in place for improving on this weakness.

Perhaps you are watching TED talks to gain skills in a particular area, reading the latest-and-greatest book on the subject, or maybe you are taking a seminar at a nearby community center. We are all human with our weaknesses, so don't be afraid to share yours!

Ryan's Answer #1
"I believe I could improve on some technical skills including Excel and Word. Currently I am at a beginner to intermediate level; however, I would be more comfortable at an advanced level. I have enrolled myself in an evening/weekend workshop for the next six weeks. We will see how stellar my skills are after that course!"
Ryan's Answer #2
"I know this will come off as cliche, but it's truthful. My weakness is in not delegating. I know what I want to be done and how I want it done, so it's often easier to do it myself. However, it can inhibit my ability to grow. I cannot take on every step of a project; I need to be able to give the task or a portion of it to another team member or direct report, let go of the control and know it will be taken care of. I've spoken with my current manager about it, and we've developed a system where he can call me out on the behavior since often I'm not aware of it. By bringing awareness to it at the moment, I find my propensity to hold onto control has decreased, so I'm certainly moving in the right direction."
