As a nurse anesthetist, you have many employment options. Why did you apply to our health care facility?

What questions do you have for me?
Before your interview, do your research! Make sure you have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the website to make sure the answers are not obvious. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of questions you could have found the answers to from simply watching a video on their company site! Think of questions that are relevant to the industry. Some of your questions may be asking for clarifications about something. Other questions might be delving deeper into something that interests you about their vision or their company culture. Put together a list of up to ten questions so that you are prepared!

Rachelle's Answer
"Why do you like working here?"
4.
How would your co-workers describe you?
The interviewer can see your experience on your resume, now it is your opportunity to tell the interviewer about your professional relationships. Think about the professional traits that your coworkers possess that makes it a joy to work with.

Rachelle's Answer
"My coworkers would say that I'm dedicated to my work and care very much about my patients. Everyday I bring my very best to work to inspire my jr. Anesthetists and others around me."
5.
Give me a specific example of a time when you were unable to complete a project on time.
Remember, the interviewer isn't here to condemn you. Provide an honest answer. With that said, try to stay away from a severe deadline you may have missed in your life. The interviewer is looking for a simple deadline, and what you learned from your mistake. Did you simply under estimate your time? Did you face a distraction at work? Were you in over your head? Whatever the situation was, you had to have learned from the outcome, and it had to make you better in someway. Explain that to the interviewer.
6.
On a scale from 1 to 10, how honest are you?
Do you feel that you are a very honest person or do you have room for growth? This could be a tricky question as nobody is always 100% honest. Answer to the best of your ability and back your reply by speaking about your personal ethics.

Rachelle's Answer
"I would love to give myself a 10/10 for honesty but truthfully - nobody is 100% honest all of the time. I will give myself an 9 because I always do my best to be as honest as possible."
7.
How do you handle communicating bad news to a fellow worker or subordinate?
One of the toughest parts of communication can be delivering bad news to people that you work with and care about. Whether it is delivering a less than positive work review or terminating someone - it doesn't come easy. Assure the interviewer that you are able to handle this type of task in a clear, concise, and professional manner.

Rachelle's Answer
"I certainly do not enjoy communicating bad news to a co-worker but I do have experience in doing so. When this type of task is required of me, I make sure to practice empathy. Truth is always key, so I will be honest and clear when communicating the news. For instance, if I am to deliver bad news in a particular case they are close to, I will bring great empathy to my delivery."
8.
What are your salary expectations?
The best thing that you can do when asked about your salary expectations, be open and honest about what you are currently earning, and where you want to be in the future.

Rachelle's Answer
"I can share with you what I am currently earning, and where I would like to be in my next position. Currently, I am earning a base salary of $178K plus benefits. Last year my earnings were $185K and I'd like to earn a bit above that in my next position."
9.
When you suffer a setback, how does that emotionally affect you and your work?
Everyone handles the stress and disappointment of setbacks differently. Discuss with the interviewer how you typically cope with setbacks in the workplace.

Rachelle's Answer
"Experiencing a setback is always disappointing, and can be a bit disheartening, but I understand that it happens from time to time. If I experience a major setback I will take a few moments to debrief with my manager and discuss what I could have done differently. Then, I move on!"
10.
Tell me about your greatest work related accomplishment.
Talking about your greatest accomplishment will give the interviewer a strong idea of where you place your values. It will also show the interviewer more about your personality, how you like to be motivated, and how to coach you in the future. It is okay to brag a little bit when answering this question. Show that you are proud of yourself and your career accomplishments!

Here is an example answer: "The greatest accomplishment in my career was graduating University as an honors student while still working full time in a related field. I was top of my class, and working full time. This showed me that I am able to dedicate myself to my career and reach the goals that I set for myself. It felt great to accomplish so much and be recognized for my dedication."
