Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Interview Details – I found out about the position through my school's career services office and the hiring manager emailed me the same day as I submitted my application materials to schedule a phone interview. After a successful phone screening, I went in several times to meet with the hiring manager and the rest of the group. The interview questions were fairly straightforward and pertained to my background. Ultimately, however, the culture of the organization and the project itself was not the best fit for me.

Interview Question – All questions were straightforward   Answer Question

Budget Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bronx, NY

I applied online - interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in July 2013.

Interview Details – I applied in-person and the process took 3 months. Initial contact by HR and coordination of interview was smooth and easy. The HR interviewer was nice and asked questions that are general but clearly stated. Peer interviewers were not as friendly. Topics discussed were not related to the position nor about applicant. Reluctant to provide information on the position and work environment. After all the time I invested in preparing for the interviews, HR should have reciprocated common courtesy of informing me that they choose another less qualified candidate.

Substance Abuse Counselor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in January 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process took a while. They gave me a call to schedule an interview three weeks after I submitted my application. Also, the call back about the job offer took over three weeks to come. I suppose they were very thorough with the interview process and had quite a high number of applicants.

Interview Question – They asked what policy if any in my previous counseling positions I did not agree with but followed any way   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Scheduling conflicts

Graduate Student Interview

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Interview Details – Formal interviews 1st day-dress to impress! Read up a little bit on the people you will be interviewing with, but don't go crazy. Make sure you know the stuff you put in your resume. Day 2 is more relaxed, business casual (with some good walking shoes).

Interview Question – Why do you want to become a scientist?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nothing to negotiate.

Summer Volunteer Laboratory Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bronx, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in June 2011.

Interview Details – After hearing by word of mouth, applied in person directly to the department under which the PI had an opening. No formal interview, but met with the PI, postdocs, and clinical researcher in his lab to understand the nature of the work and see if it was mutually a good fit.

Interview Question – Being able to calculate how to make a % solution off the top of my head.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't know how much work I would be given, but it turned out that I worked full time, which was an excellent experience. I was only offered a paid position under a different principal investigator after several months at the first. The second PI had some funding available, whereas the first didn't. I wouldn't have been offered the paid position (actually still a trainee) if I hadn't already volunteered.

Reasearcher Interview

Bronx, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in November 2010.

Interview Details – The interview consisted of a skills test, it required me to speak, read, write and translate Bengali, which I did with ease because it is my native language. She is a professor of the college and was doing a research on Bengali women. The interview was pretty standard nothing out of the ordinary, but it was very friendly. She brought in one of her friend who helps her with the research, and who was also a Bengali, and me and her spoke in Bengali in front of the main interviewer.
