Medical Assistant Interview

Medical Assistant
Brookline, MA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Interview Details – Submitted an online application and was immediately sent back an email to fill out a questionnaire assessment that took about 15-20 min to fill out. Once that was submitted I was contacted by HR after 3 days to set up a phone interview. The phone interview took about 10 min and was a very basic interview, no hard questions, essentially just fact checking, and at that point we set up an in-person interview with the office manager. The in-person interview consisted of the office manager and the lead medical assistant, they asked standard questions while looking at my resume. After the interview they showed me around the office to get an idea of the work environment. Two days after the in-person interview I was contacted again by HR to submit 5 references on an online form and to sign and fax a form in. Unfortunately, a little after a week I was emailed again informing me that they decided to move forward with another candidate.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you, as a new graduate, versus someone with experience? What will you bring to the team?   View Answer

Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

Clinical Research Coordinator
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed 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.
