    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

    Interview

    They called about a month after application. Interview with HR lasted about an hour. I then scheduled interview with Dept Head about a week later. Started work a couple days after that. Everything seemed organized and that if they call you for an interview you will get hired unless you mess up terribly.

    Recruiter Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Phone Interview > Team Interview > Direct Supervisor Interview. The phone interview was 30-45 minutes. The interviewers reviewed my work history and background as well as gave me a realistic job preview. The team interview was a lot of fun because it gave both me and the group I would be working with a chance to meet and interact with each other before I became a member of the organization. The interview with the direct supervisor followed and it was a continuation of the group interview but a bit more in depth.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It was a very fair process. The organization makes every effort to make the best offer the first time.

    I applied online and was contacted by Human Resources by phone for an interview. I interviewed with the team and then was called back a second time for an interview with their supervisor. Human Resources offered the job and, after some negotiation, I accepted.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Everything is coordinated through HR, which makes the process a bit clumsy.
    1) HR contacts you to set up a phone interview. If scheduling is a problem they may need to call the manager and then call you back, rinse and repeat. 2) If phone interview is good, HR contacts you to set up in-person interview. Again, this can be a pain to get scheduled. 3) Possible multiple in-person interviews. Mine were all fairly casual Q&A type events--no tests or anything like that. 4) HR will contact you with an offer. In my case, when I countered the offer the HR person was able to respond without checking in with a manager, so I guess they were given a cap ahead of time. 5) Once hired, work with HR to fill out paperwork!

    Interview Questions

    • They asked why I would leave my old job if I loved it so much (I'd raved about it earlier in the conversation).   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was very little negotiation. They made an offer, I made a counter offer, they said "we can only go as high as X" and that was sufficient.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The first interview was with the hiring manager, the second interview was with the team, and the third interview was with others with whom the position would work closely. The total number of interviews seemed extremely excessive for a simple contract position. Everyone was nice enough, but some personalities seemed belligerent and unfamiliar with legally acceptable interview questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    They were very respectful, informative and straight forward. I very much enjoyed meeting their HR/Recruiting staff, as well as the team members. They have a very nice campus and benefits-- I think anyone would be lucky to work there. I did turn them down, but will potentially apply there again in the future if I am job hunting again.
