    apply online, face-to-face interview. I had the impression that they had a pretty good idea about who to hire from the beginning. So as long as you don't behave like an idiot and be honest with your answers they should give you an offer

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Baylor College of Medicine.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by receptionist from department within days of submitting resume online and was scheduled for interview for the following week. Arrived at interview and waited over 45 minutes for the interviewers to arrive. Interview was brief with few questions. Questions were typical of management interviews, but lacking in depth. Interviewers didn't provide much/clear information regarding the position, even after asking several questions. Was informed that the interview was a 3 part interview and would receive follow up regarding next step. Within 2 days received email that someone else was hired.
