    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied Sunday night and received an email about a phone screen the next day. Wow that was fast I thought. Scheduled the phone screen for 2 days later. Lasted 15 minutes and was straight up from a list. Said I'd find out in a day if the hiring manager is interested in bringing me in.

    2 weeks later I sent an email to HR, said I was still being considered.

    2 weeks alter I sent another email to HR, never responded.

    Then the posting mysteriously disappeared. I've heard that for their corporate offices it typically takes months to get through.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was presented to the Office of General Counsel at CHOP as a candidate for a paralegal position. The position currently consists of supporting three attorneys, but another paralegal is expected to be hired when a fourth attorney arrives in about a month. The process was pretty quick for me because someone had started the position and left after a couple of days. I was interviewed on the phone with the office manager for the Legal Dept. and the person from CHOP's Talent Acquisition department, and they asked me to come in on the Tuesday after the July 4th holiday. Things worked out well, and I am still here.

    Research Technician II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I set up the interview via e-mails exchanged with the PI who was recruiting a technician. The interview consisted of about one hour one-on-one with the PI (the research conducted and expectations were discussed, as well as the research experiences I had), about one and a half hours in the lab (meeting other lab members for them to explain what they like / dislike about the lab, as well as a tour of the lab equipment), and finally about ten minutes with an HR rep (mostly to explain the hiring process). I rarely felt like I was being evaluated directly, it was more of a test to see whether our personalities would work well with one another.
