    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very long and tedious with little promises. I had to keep following up and leaving messages but no one got back to me on the same day. I feel as if it took so long because I asked for a high salary and they wanted to see if they could find a candidate who wasn't asking for as much.
