    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with recruiter and one in-person interview with the recruiter, Director, and colleague. Everyone was nice and welcoming and willing to answer any questions about this position. Also gave good insight into the job duties. Especially appreciated the information that was provided by the recruiter during the in-person interview in regards to employee benefits/costs and parking information. It was nice to have that information to consider in advance. Was informed by the recruiter in a timely manner that I was not selected for the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had the first phone interview with a hiring manager at 9:40pm. I was totally unprepared as it was late at night and I was not expected the phone call. The interview last about 20 minutes. The hiring manager asked me to introduce myself, talk about my education background and my research experience, toward the end of the interview he took a little bit of time to explain his research area. Two days later, I heard from HR, they want to schedule an face to face interview. There is not much in the face to face interview. The hiring manager recapped on what we had talked on the phone and explained a little bit more on his research area. The interview only took about half an hour long.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with five different people for one hour each. The departments I met with were proffesional. The human resources person I worked with was very dissapointing. She knew nothing about research, insulted me at the interview, and then insulted me when she offered me the job. I know other representatives of the human resources department who are excellent, but this one person is unproffesional and gives the company a bad reputation.
