    IT Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    Interviews tend to be the group model. No real structure to them as far as an official format. Other than a few standard interview questions, the interviews specifically in the IT department tend to be more relaxed and informal. Focus on work experience/knowledge base as well as how a personality will fit in with this dynamic group hold equal weight.

    Pediatric Staff Neuropsychologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Medford, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Medford, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Cambridge Health Alliance in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed 2-3 times. First with sr. neuropsychologist in this particular building. Wasn't even aware I was interviewing. I was just attending a seminar she ran - I hadn't even been looking for a job. One day she told me that her supervisor wanted to speak with me. I figured that perhaps the company didn't want outsiders participating in in-house activities. He and I spoke very easily and casually about a shared mid-West connection, what I liked to do with the children we saw, and other basic schools of thought in terms of neuropsychological theory. I remember being absolutely stunned when he told me they were hiring and would I like to be on their staff.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate at all. The FTE they offered was already $30K above what I had been making. I didn't see a reason to ask for more.

    The hiring process took three months. HR is very very slow. Interviewed over webcam, then went in to tour the lab. I also had to get a physical and drug test.

    Director Interview

    Interview Details

    Mine was an internal hire. My boss offered me the position without a process but I asked him to "put it through the process" because I needed my team to feel they got the person they wanted. While it seemed like a pretty straightforward request, it then took him NINE MONTHS to make it happen, meanwhile I was doing 2 jobs for the entire time.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Cambridge Health Alliance in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview at the last minute in 2008 after several other applicants had been interviewed. Once accepted it took about a month for all paperwork etc to clear. It was time-consuming and a little frustrating.

    It was nerve-wrecking because I didn't feel confident in my ability to negotiate well. But I ultimately did fine.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Cambridge Health Alliance.

    Interview Details

    Interviews with both individuals and several groups in various depts, some of whom seemed less interested in or even at times confused about what the position entailed. After a lengthy process, it was disappointing not to hear anything back after a second set of interviews. I only discovered the position was open when I saw it posted online again.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were fairly straightforward, however, as noted above, some people demonstrated little understanding of the position being hired, and even were a bit puzzled about what the position would accomplish.   Answer Question
