Anesthesia Tech I Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
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
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation

BE the Match- Search Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
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
Nurse Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)

Interview Details – I was able to apply for the position via the intranet and submit my resume. Within less than 12 hours Human Resources contacted me to set up a telephone interview. The telephone interview was scheduled in less that 48 hours. I am now awaiting a call back to see if the Director of ICU is interested in interviewing me. I should hear from HR within 48 hours.
Interview Question – How have I increased employee retention and what were the measureable outcomes. View Answer
Human Resources Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Baylor University Medical Center in July 2010.
Interview Details – I got a call from the recruiter, to make an appointment for the phone interview, asked the basics, why Baylor, why this position...They also asked my current salary and asked if I was interviewing anywhere else, which I was, another hospital group in TX.
Called a week later to schdedule a 1:1 interview with HR Director, very nice
she asked if I had any questions about the position before anything else. So I asked my questions about the company, how many incumbents etc...
Got an email a day later stating they 'decided to pursue other candidates...'
I called the recruiter back to get feedback for my development, I was told they chose someone with 7-10yrs exp over my 6yrs. But overall, cool experience.
Recommendation: Know about Baylor
Occupational Therapist Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Baylor University Medical Center in September 2008.
Interview Details – I initiated the interview process by uploading information to the Baylor website. The recruiter contacted me a few days later for a phone interview. She then contacted the managers of the various units for interest in my skills and experience in their respective specialties. She set up three interviews, one a day. They were all conducted in a group format with behavior psych questions. I toured the facilities and shadowed another therapist during patient care. I reported my preferences to the recruiter and she extended a job offer. I was given three days to make a decision.

Ancillary Support Tech Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Baylor University Medical Center
Interview Details – Most of the people that interviewed me were very receptive and nice. I transfered several times from within the culture so I didnt fill nervous at all. I think there is high turnover there, because of the disparity of pay between other hospitals, so I think they are always eager to bring in new talent.
Interview Question – Depending on your department, they will run through several tests to make sure that you can be trained effectively at your work bench in the lab. Answer Question
