Interviewing techniques for hiring quality employees in the OR.


Today's OR requires high caliber employees to provide quality patient care and excellent service to their medical staff members. As such, there is clearly a need for some mode of identifying the appropriate individuals to fill specific vacant positions. A recent survey was conducted of OR directors and managers in Miami, Fla. The purpose of the survey was to identify exactly what types of education and/or training directors and managers had acquired with respect to interviewing techniques and to determine whether there was any consistency in their interview processes. Based on the surveys' findings it was found that there is a lack of relevant training amongst those directors and managers who conduct interviews. This training could include the implementation of standardized interview questions (for candidates of specific job descriptions) for use on a consistent basis, as well as a process of evaluation for the interview.
