Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in June 2013.
Interview Details – Submit application online, and then in-person interview.
Interview Question – No really any. The interviewer asked a lot about why I decided to do research in his field rather than my original area. They are very related, and I personally did not even see that as a departure from my original area. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in November 2011.
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.

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 was a challenging experience both as a Lab Supervisor and as a manager.

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.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in July 2012.
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 then continued with HR to give references and heard back from them with the offer about 3 weeks after my initial interview.
