Marketing Temp Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boston, MA

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Children's Hospital Boston.

Interview Details – I reached out to a second degree connection on LinkedIn. Total time from initial communication to verbal offer was one week. Interviews were great - more of a conversation than back and forth question and answer. Interviewers made me feel very comfortable. I met with a total of three people.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate because I read there wasn't much for negotiation. Though I was offered and accepted a position, the offer was revoked due to funding falling through. This was extremely disappointing as I had already been through the entire hiring process and had picked up my badge.

Administrative Associate II Interview

Administrative Associate II
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Children's Hospital Boston in November 2013.

Interview Details – The recruiter I met with was very helpful and once he had met me and gone over my resumé he set me up on some interviews within different departments. Overall each department's interview is different, but I had positive experiences all around.

Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate. They are upfront about the salary range for the positions and there isn't a ton of wiggle room but they were able to meet my needs.

Ambulatory Services Representative II Interview

Ambulatory Services Representative II
Boston, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Children's Hospital Boston in May 2013.

Interview Details – The interview was a 3 step process - after being screened on the phone, I met with the recruiter, then with the potential manager, and then with the team to see if I'd be a good "fit". I think the interview with the recruiter was actually the most indepth, while the other two seemed to be more to get a sense of who I was. Everyone was very friendly and laidback - I recommend just trying to relax and be yourself as much as possible.

Interview Question – One question I had to think about a bit was, "What makes you interested in the administrative side of things?"
Also, the very first question I was asked when I got to the team interview was, "So, how much do you know about this position?"
