Unfair. If they already have someone, or a friend or a relative they give you the hardest questions they can find. Bay Pines VA.

Interviewed for LVN position, there were 3 people in the room. 2 Nurses and the manager of unit. Questions were a mix of clinical based and personality questions with the ending question being: What makes you stand out and why should we hire you vs the other people we are interviewing.

It was a panel interview consisted of 4 people. All performance based questions ( "Tell us about a time when..." "Give an example of..." "Describe a situation in which you...")

If you are shy or dont come in there prepared to be at Arthur's Round Table then you probably ain't gonna make it. Questions are very in depth, and on the spot, and you need to make sure that you would be the best bet for their company.

Panel of 4 supervisors from different units that you qualify for. Each will ask 8 questions each. Questions situational, job knowledge. At the end they will ask if there is anything you want to say about yourself that makes you qualified for the position you are applying for, questions you may have about your positions you applying for ie work environment, what is expected , kinds of documentation used in the unit, what kind of assistance you can receive for the VA to further your education etc.

Several people ask you a series of different questions with at least three parts to each question asked. Situational type questions.
