    I applied online – interviewed at Associated Regional and University Pathologists.

    The process took weeks between submitting my application and receiving a call. After an initial phone interview things happened quickly. I interviewed with multiple supervisors in one interview and received multiple offers only a few days after the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Associated Regional and University Pathologists (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They gave me time to tell about myself, and then they read off many standard interview questions which I felt helped me tell more about my personal experiences. The odd thing about the interview was that I was on one end of a conference room while the two interviewers were half way across the room.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Associated Regional and University Pathologists (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Approximately one week after submitting my application online, I was invited to participate in a digital interview. The digital interview took about 30 minutes to complete and mostly involved questions about relevant work experience, basic qualifications, industry background, etc. Three days after the digital interview, I was contacted by a corporate recruiter about scheduling an on-site interview with the hiring manager. The on-site interview was conducted by the hiring manager and senior BA on the project. Overall, the interview was more difficult than I've experienced at other companies. Lots of questions that asked me to describe specific past experience, e.g: - Describe a project where you made an improvement. - Describe a scenario where you had a disagreement or difference of opinion with a developer. - Describe a project that pushed your analytical skills to the limits - Describe a scenario where you had to choose between a strategic or tactical approach. These were accompanied by a handful of technical questions aimed to determine how well I could communicate with an implementation team. A few days later, I was invited to participate in a second on-site interview. This time with the project manager. The second interview followed the same course as the first--again, lots of experience-based questions and anecdotal answers. I received of offer of employment about two weeks after the second on-site interview. During that time, I was frequently in touch with the corporate recruiter who was very forthcoming about the hiring process and my application status. At no time was I ever in the dark about my candidacy. I declined the position in favor of a more competitive offer, but overall, my interview experience at ARUP was very positive.

    Interview

    They use this HireVue process. You're talking to a computer. This is a strong indication as to what you can expect from this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are very detailed on minute topics. It is hard to say what was most difficult. Lot of bozos behind the glass.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    very creepy feeling from this company. Who wants to be hired by a computer?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Associated Regional and University Pathologists (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I completed the video interview at the ARUP human resources department. In hindsight I would have liked more control over the environmental backdrop and lighting. I found the HireVue format interesting and appreciated having a practice video questions option. I was called back for an in person interview. The group interview included the department supervisor and the Automated Specimen Management trainer.

    Interview Questions

    • The trainer asked whether I had a problem with repetitive processes.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Associated Regional and University Pathologists (Salt Lake City, UT) in April 2012.

    Interview

    ARUP is huge, but I didn't have much trouble to find the correct entrance. I was about 30 min earlier. After registration at the front desk, I waited about 30-35 min, which wasn't fun. I was contacted by HR and scheduled for on-site two weeks later. It was one hour group interview, a R&D vice president, a medical director, a group manager, a group lead, and a postdoc fellow. There were mainly behavioral questions and general technical questions, like "tell me about your experience with ..."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Associated Regional and University Pathologists (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was very pleasant and quite informal. It was set up rather quickly; once the hiring manager called, she wanted to set up the interview for early the next day. It was one-on-one with one of the managers, it a slightly awkwardly-small room, and was followed by a tour of the testing area where I would be working and meeting other employees with similar jobs, or that coordinated with the position for which I was interviewing.
