    They contact you via email to schedule phone interview. Phone interview is approximately 30 minutes, or seemingly shorter if they are not really interested. The go over housekeeping information with you to ensure they have all of the most up to date information.

    The interview was a 1:1 30min interview without share time following. The woman was very nice and gave me a chance to ask questions in the end. Overall the experience was helpful for future jobs. I wish that I was able to see the unit (we interviewed off the unit).

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Not very detailed. Seemed like they were more interested in personality questions. A lot of general questions about past projects with little emphasis on coding. This was a web dev position maintaining and enhancing many internal company sites. I think they look for steady even tempered candidates

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite seamless as compared to other hospitals. I had the initial telephone screening to ensure that I had the qualifications that the department was looking for. This was followed by the first interview to meet the leadership team. Afterwards, I was interviewed by a round table of staff represented by the various sub-departments. This was quite different but at the same time it gave me the opportunity to meet the line staff so I can get a sense of whether it will be a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected questions was how can i bring joy to the department.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Quite smooth. I got what I wanted upon the first try

    Interview

    The interview was conducted over the phone. A lot of the same questions I answered online in the application process were asked again, along with more specific ones. I was told to wait around two weeks to hear back one way or another. The questions asked that were not job-specific were very typical interview questions.

    Interview

    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.
