    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at City of Hope.

    I was contacted regarding a position via the phone. I had two interviews total with the manager (phone) and the director (in-person). The environment was very friendly and both interviews were more like back and forth conversations than a grilling interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked several gotcha questions in the form of "wrong" statements to see if I was paying attention. I politely corrected my interviewers and they were happy to see I 1) knew the answer and 2) spoke up.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was brief and over the phone. There isn't a lot of room for negotiation, but you can get more vacation if you really push and they really want you.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at City of Hope in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process is lengthy. Once you apply do not expect a response anytime soon. It took me over 3 months from interview to hire date. The background took almost 2 months to complete. The HR staff are very helpful and very responsive once the process has begun, it is worth the wait and the hospital is a great place to be.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Duarte, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at City of Hope in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied on Biocareers Sunday night and got a phone call from the PI early Monday morning. She said that she will hire me right after the interview. A little bit of technical questions regarding my previous work but she already did her homework reading my papers. Overall, easy interview.

    Negotiation Details
    The PI said okay to everything I negotiate for but it never materialized. The salary is meager, so if you don't get the other benefits not sure if it is worth it.
