    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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 weeks - interviewed 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 1+ week - interviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website and never heard back until I had a friend who put me in contact with one of the recruiters. I emailed that recruiter and he immediately set me up for an hr interview. The hr interview was very easy going and the questions that were asked were very simple. Then I was forwarded to a hiring manager whom I could not get in contact with that same day so i was scheduled for an itnerview the following week. I met with two of the hiring managers who were a bit uptight and asked close to 20 questions back and forth.
