Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2010.

Interview

The woman who hired me was a professor at the University of Pittsburgh. She interviewed candidates, selected the person she wanted to hire, and had UPMC extend an offer. The process with UPMC took a while, I have never had such a thourough background check! The only reason the process was so quick is that my future boss had them rush it as the staff member I was replacing had a specified end date and she wanted me to be at least slightly trained by her.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

There is pretty much no negotiation with UPMC and the raises are mimimal.
