Research Technician II Interview

Research Technician II
Philadelphia, PA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Interview Details – Phone interview first with HR, then scheduled interview with actual hiring manager/PI.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected but this ALWAYS depends on the hiring manager. Be prepared as much as possible and research the principal investigator and the work they do.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate. Salary was grant based.

Research Technician II Interview

Research Technician II

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.
