Education Coordinator Interview

Education Coordinator

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Baylor University Medical Center.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview with an HR recruiter. Then they pass on your information to the department. They'll contact for an in person interview. You meet with manager and director. If they like you, you'll be invited to meet with the manager and another higher management official. Then the offer comes from HR. They low ball the offers and do not shy away from people with little to no education. They also count that the interviewee will not negotiate the salary. They also like to do a personality test to ensure that your personality doesn't clash with the manager because they wouldn't want to hire someone who will question the manager's authority or the processes and procedures already in place.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were typical interview questions you could pick up off a website.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. If you negotiate, they'll wait you out until you either decline or accept their original offer.

Anesthesia Tech I Interview

Anesthesia Tech I
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Baylor University Medical Center in July 2013.

Interview Details – About 2 weeks after applying online, I received an email from a BUMC recruiter asking to schedule a phone screening. The screening was about 15 minutes long and consisted of 3 behavioral questions, a run down of the job and its responsibilities, a description of the training process, a few questions about my work and research experience, and lastly, whether or not I had any questions for her.
1 week after the phone screening I was emailed with a request to schedule an in-person interview. I took their first available time the next day, and I was met by two people including the supervisor of my division. There were no behavioral questions this time around but they still wanted to know if I was capable of the duties the position entailed and had me provide evidence to back up my statements. They warned me the job would include long hours on my feet (including some weekends) and a very busy schedule, but I assured them I could handle it based on previous work experience.
1 week after my interview I was contacted with an offer.

Interview Question – We've all made mistakes. Tell me about a time you made a mistake on the job and what you did to resolve it.   View Answer

BE the Match- Search Coordinator Interview

BE the Match- Search Coordinator
Dallas, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Baylor University Medical Center.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview & then a formal interview with the Head search coordinator. She was a great interviewer, but you definitely have to be a medical-minded person for this job/interview. If you don’t know anything about PBSC/stem-cell & Bone marrow donation, then study up! This job requires you to be able remember medical terminology at the drop of a hat. You communicate with the oncologists in their “language,” and then you have to be able to turn around and explain the process in a way that non-medical people will understand it. There were a lot of questions about how well I can work under deadline pressure, etc… it’s a fire drill of a job, but very exciting. If you’re medical-minded, have a passion for helping people, work well under pressure, and don’t mind staying late at the office, then this job is for you.

Interview Question – How will you handle the following situation: A donor gets close to finishing the donor preparation process & decides to back out...   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn’t negotiate because i was happy to get the job
