I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in November 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted an online application with HR. Within about a week, I heard from a nurse recruiter who asked me some basic questions over the phone about my past experience and what i was looking for in a future position. She told me she'd forward my application to both the manager for the job I applied for and for a few similar positions that we discussed. She called back the next day to schedule am interview for two of those positions. The job I actually took included an interview with my future direct manager and the nursing director. A week later they called to schedule a phone interview with the practice's medical director. After the phone interview, I was called by HR to "follow up" at their building, which turned out to be the job offer.

Interview Details – Submit application online, and then in-person interview.

Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in June 2013.
Interview Details – The process is very simple. You fill out the application and attend the orientation. Bear in mind that orientations are only offered about 6-7 times in a year and you need to get recommendations from a professor or a professional colleague as well. At the orientation, you hand in the application materials and learn more about the program. It is a great opportunity to learn more about medicine. After the orientation, you wait a week for your name to be placed in the system and then you pickup your ID badge and can begin to volunteer.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in May 2013.
Interview Details – I met with Co- Director and was interviewed for 15 minutes before being offered the position. I was not fully prepared for the expectations of the position but when you are in a competitive environment you have to expect that. It took a few months to connect with enough people to develop the network I needed to properly complete the projects I was assigned to complete. It was a challenging experience both as a Lab Supervisor and as a manager.
Interview Question – I found that communication was not straight forward. Often individuals were not clear about their timelines. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I wanted to get my foot in the door. I accepted the position knowing I was worth more. One has to be realistic when you are in a very competitive organisation.

Interview Details – I applied on March 30th, 2013 and got a call from the lab supervisor in april 2nd week to schedule and interview. I went in an interview the supervisor ask one of her co-worker to give me a tour of laboratory for five mins. the co-worker gave me a tour and introduced me to Senior tech, MPA and other Lab Techs and told me how everything works. She brought me back to supervisor and our interview started. it wasn't a interview interview. I felt it was more like a conversation. She kept saying that i really impressed her with the answers. At the end of the interview when she asked me when i am able to start and pay range. I told her that i am available immediately and about the pay i answered her saying honestly, i have no idea what hospitals pay for the entry level positions so i am open to what you guys offer. And she goes like the answer you gave me really hit me off the right spot. I am impressed. In the closing she told me that it was a really good interview and within a week or less either HR or i will call you. So, after a week i called her back and she goes like i forwarded everything to HR and they will contact you. Does anyone have an idea how the procedure works. I mean i thing i did good in the interview. Can anyone share what they think. Please it would be really helpful because i am so nervous if i will get the offer or not.
Interview Question – NO i didnt had any curveball question Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in April 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted my application via the online Brigham and Women's Hospital and Partners Health system. You can look at all your previously submitted applications but there is no where to follow up on your application. That is the real downside to this system. I suppose they get a large number of applicant and could not deal with the call volume, but it definitely makes the waiting game much more stressful. I was then called to schedule a first interview with some of the research staff. After that I was called back to meet with the study PI. I then continued with HR to give references and heard back from them with the offer about 3 weeks after my initial interview.
Interview Question – I didn't get any curve balls in this interview Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't much of a negotiation phase. The offer was on par with many other RA 1 jobs so I just took it.
