Interview Process

Most of our interviews are with a panel of your peers and are conducted through a series of behavioral questions. These questions look for you to provide an example of your experience and knowledge, and tell us a story of how you carried out a task or solved a problem. This type of interview is conversational and helps us get to know you better.

You of course will also have the opportunity to ask questions of us and of the role you are applying for. 

Orientation and Onboarding

When you are hired at Presbyterian, you will attend a pre-screening at our employee health facility and then depending on your role, attend an orientation in Albuquerque called Brilliance in the Basics. Healthcare providers and advance practice clinicians will also attend a separate new provider orientation. We also use the StandOut Platform to help teams engage with each other on a more personalized level. StandOut is a strength-based approach to activating individualized talent - helping team leaders and team members turn their talents into outstanding performance.
