    Research Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bronx, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY).

    Interview

    Interview took place with the investigator 1:1. Surprisingly there was no interest for powerpoint presentation with projector in presence of whole lab / group members. Few questions on research interest were asked, and it was promised that the salary will be given as per the NIH rules for post doctoral fellowship. However after joining it was observed that the salary provided every year was below the levels as given by NIH guidelines as well as guidelines given by the Albert Einstein college of Medicine. No promotions even if you have impressive research experience, expertise, skills, teamwork ability, dedication, awards, performance, achievements, scientific publications, etc. Worked in this college for over 4 years however I did not receive any appreciation for my contributions. I felt like discrimination persists in this college. However few faculties in this college are really very good,very encouraging, appreciating, supportive and non biased.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions on past research experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was deceived with respect to the salary as per the NIH guidelines. Even after working for over 4 years salary never matched the rules of the college or of NIH. Please make sure you get right stipend/salary mentioned by NIH and as per the rules of this college. Some investigators do not pay as per the rules. If you dont get the promise of salary as per the rules please look for better places or look for better investigators immediately. Do not waste your time.

    Program Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
