    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, it took about two weeks until I was called for an on the phone interview. after hearing my background they believed I was a better fit for the physician office assistant. I then was asked to take an online assessment. After the assessment I followed up and had an interview with the HR recruiter. during the interview I was then sent to the Administrative coordinator in the department I was to work in. The interview was very nice and so were the people. be prepared for a very long list of questions about your goals in life, along with some " what would you do questions". i was not offered the position but I am interviewing in other departments. Its a pretty competitive process for good reasons.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.

    Interview Details

    It was a long and frustrating process, but in the end it was a great first job out of college for me. I commuted in 3 separate days for interviews, and on one day a physician kept me waiting an hour and a half before she met me for the interview. However, I am glad I stuck with the process because I enjoyed working there.

    Was interviewed by HR first (very easy; essentially a practice interview), then by two Administrators simultaneously, then by the Administrative Coordinator, then by physicians if you pass all previous steps.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online in February and received an invitation to take an assessment. The next day I was contacted by a recruiter who gave me a short phone interview and invited me in for an interview the following week. The day of the interview I met with the recruiter and she set me up for all my interviews for the same day. I met with two administrative supervisors, then two administrative managers and then with the physicians I would be working with. One of the physicians was unavailable and I was scheduled to come back the following week to meet with her. Th interviews all went extremely well. They were professional yet very inviting and relaxed. The physicians were VERY nice ladies. The interviews were about 30 mins to an hour and consisted of many behavioral and job based questions. They wanted specific clear answers that tied to previous employment. BE VERY CLEAR IN YOUR ANSWERS.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process took about a month and a half for me due to scheduling issues. The first interview I had was with a recruiter who asked me basic questions about myself and my background. She also asked a few questions about working in a team and difficult situations that I have been in at work and how I handled them. Those last questions were to prepare me for the interview that I would have with the two Administrative Managers the following week. My interview with the two managers went well. They asked about 20 questions ranging from what my role is usually in a team to if I had ever made a mistake during my job. As long as you give genuine detailed answers you should be fine. My second interview took the longest (about an hour and half) but that was because they were extremely friendly so it was easy to talk to them and get more in depth about my experiences. The last interview was with the doctors that I would be working for. I was a little nervous at first but as soon as I came in to meet with them I quickly realized that there was nothing to be nervous about because they were so nice! They didn't really ask me any of the usual interview questions. They just asked more questions about my personality and what my future goals were. I was offered the position the next day. Overall it was a great interview process!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through Linkedin and received a phone interview within the next few days. I then was asked to come in for an initial interview. I was told there are three stages to the interview. If you get to human resources, you probably got the job. I had three interviews in one day, which was completely exhausting, when I was told I would be there for one -- I forgot the names of people by the end of the second interview, and was tested on their names in the last interview and I couldn't remember them. Interview questions weren't necessarily challenging. I knew within a short amount of time being there that the position was not paid enough for the commute and responsibilities, although the benefits are good.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process required a lot of traveling. The first "round" was with a talent acquisitions manager who required me to take a computer test before the meeting. He also asked me a few questions that would be asked in the real interview. This was prep for the second "round" with two hiring managers who asked me around 15-20 questions. They required me to be specific in my answers. After that, I was called back to meet with a doctor, his nurse, and administrative assistant. This interview was short, just a few questions on conflict resolution.
