Research Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UPMC in June 2010.
Interview Details – 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 Question – Tell me about yourself. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is pretty much no negotiation with UPMC and the raises are mimimal.
