Frequently Asked Questions
  • HOW TO APPLY

    As the largest private employer in Orange County, Orange Regional Medical Center offers a wide range of employment opportunities including nursing, allied health professions, finance, information technology and a variety of clerical and
    support positions.

    Searching and Applying for a Position: After perusing our Web site, go to Job Search. Apply for each position of interest
    as aligned with your educational background, skill set and experience. Afterwards, you will receive an email acknowledge-
    ment confirming the receipt of your application.

    Evaluation: Once your application is in our system, it will be reviewed and compared with the requirements of the position.
    Due to the large volume of candidate resumes we receive, only the most closely aligned candidates will be contacted
    directly.

    The Interview: A phone or video interview may precede a face-to-face interview with a human resources professional
    and/or hiring manager. The primary purpose of the interview is to assess the technical and cultural fit of the candidate with the needs of Orange Regional. It also serves as a way for the candidate to gain a better understanding of the job opportu-
    nity and Orange Regional as an organization.

    We use an interview technique called Behavioral-Based Interviewing. A Behavioral-Based Interview is a structured process
    where you will be asked to describe specific situations you have experienced related to the work or skill in question (i.e.
    teamwork). While it is important for individuals to possess the appropriate knowledge, skills and prior experience to ensure
    initial success, our goal is to determine how candidates will fit within Orange Regional.
