    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    Development Office Admin. Assist- the department had me meet with about 4-5 people within a day. Basically, you meet with who will be your colleagues, who will be your supervisor, and then the head of the department. Most interview questions are basic (strengths/weaknesses, explain a time when...). It's more about personality, and if you're used to the work, or will be able to learn fast/deal with the speed of operations.

    Medical Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met with a peer and the hiring manager. Very helpful and positive process. The hiring manager shared both challenges and advantages of working with the program. Most questions focused on management style and how I have solved problems in the past. The peer interviewer share a lot of information about the clinical practice and how services were organized. I was also impressed that they let me know that I did not get the job. So many organizations do not communicate results.

    • Nothing unexpected or weird happened. This was a very straightforward interview.   Answer Question
