Interviewed at Johns Hopkins
Interview Details – I applied online and within 4 days they sent me an email to set the day of the interview. The interview was via skype as i live in another state.
Interview Question – the questions were fair. They asked me why I chose the position, what was my expertise, what do I think about Baltimore Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Johns Hopkins in May 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and received a response a month after applying. Interviewed directly with the lab manager, principal investigator, and hiring manager. The entire interview lasted 2.5 hours. After some mention that I was a top candidate for the position, I received a request for my references from the lab manager and never heard anything from HR or the lab after that. My references were never contacted, which was irritating and a waste of time. Overall, my experiences with the hiring process at JHU have been negative.
Interview Question – What negatives would your previous employer say about you? Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Johns Hopkins in January 2011.
Interview Details – The phone interview was conducted by what I believed the lead researcher himself. The day before the phone interview, he already set up the day and time for the face-to-face interview. I feel like I didn't have a say in it, but just had to agree with it. After the face-to-face interview, I was offer the job rather quickly, with a poor salary offer. I had to ask for additional employment information and the lead researcher gave me the run around and word-of-mouth kind of answers. While I was going through information packages with the HR, the lead researcher emailed me and told me that since I didn't reply to his offer in time, he's going to give it to someone else. I was not told that I have less than 6 days to make my decision. The HR was friendly, but this "future boss" is inconsiderate and unprofessional.
Interview Question – Why would you be interested in this position? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The person (also my then-future-boss) who interviewed me seems to have lack of experience on interviewing people, but it was not bad. However, after exchanging a few emails with him, it was apparent that this person is rather contradictory. He offered me the job and told me to take my time to think about it, then didn't give me the time to consider. That to me is a red flag - a boss who doesn't keep his word. Anyone is better off finding something better in this case. You can't survive in Maryland with such a low salary anyway.
Nonetheless, Johns Hopkins would be a good place to work. There are many talented people in there. This is just one of the rare cases that could have happened anywhere.
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Johns Hopkins in November 2008.
Interview Details – Interview was straight forward. You meet with the PI you will be working under and a few of the lab members. Only 1 interview. Advice: Make sure you research the lab's work before you interview to know what they do. Also make sure that you are interested it performing that same research.
