    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was simple and efficient. Compensation as Recruiter did not provide enough information about the organization. I believe that recruiter should be more forthcoming about painting the truew picture within the org for compensation.He was kind of pushy about settling the offer.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview--This was very awkward and lasted about 20minutes. A lot of behavioral questions. Then I had an in-person interview, equally awkward. We were in a small room that could only fit a table and table two chairs. It lasted about 15minutes. Again, a lot of behavioral questions, long periods of silence and the interviewer took ALOT of notes. I left unsure of anything.
