    EMR Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Miraca Life Sciences (Irving, TX).

    Interview

    Short and informal. Inexperienced interviewers. Questions were not directed towards me and my past experience. Only talked about the projects needing completion. Very unprofessional interview experience. Sold me hard on the position to fill seats rather than acting like they needed to find someone who could do the job correctly. Underwhelmed to say the least.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Miraca Life Sciences (Irving, TX).

    Interview

    The process was very quick and easy. I applied on Monday morning and someone from HR called me that afternoon to talk about the Specimen Processor position. I received a follow-up call from her the next day to schedule an in-person interview for the following day. I received an offer that Friday.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Miraca Life Sciences.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by phone a few days later. I had one casual interview a week later-- after a couple of generic questions, it felt more like a conversation than an interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. They are very direct about what the position pays and what benefits are availible. Nothing in my offer letter surprised me.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Miraca Life Sciences (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2013.

    Interview

    HR person was professional and courteous but lied about holiday schedule. Told me multiple times during interview. I would have off the day after Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years, but that was not true.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Easy. They are desperate because they have no qualified people to work in flow.

    Laboratory Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Miraca Life Sciences (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was fast and easy. I was contacted shortly after applying for a position on the company website. A recruiter from Miraca contacted me via phone and we talked about my employment history and what I was looking for moving forward. The recruiter was really easy to talk to, and I could tell she really enjoyed her job and she was very enthusiastic about Mirca. I then was scheduled to do an onsite interview with 4 different managers. I met with each manager for 30 minutes (2 hours total). I was also shown around the lab, which was impressive. I received an offer a few days later. Throughout the process, the recruiter stayed in close contact with me, so I knew what was going on the entire time. It was great!

    Interview Questions

    • Walk me through the process, step by step, of Flow cytometric acquisition and analysis from start to finish. What equipment have you used in the past.   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you had difficulty working with a supervisor, and how did you handle this difficulty?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was not really a chance to negotiate as the recruiter I was working with was very upfront about the range of salary that was being offered. She confirmed that what the company was offering was in line with my requirements prior to interviewing. I appreciated this because I knew I was not wasting my time, and I knew what to expect. Because of the clear communication, negotiating was not necessary.
