    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

    Interview Details

    At the highest levels, you may have to interview with many, many people - often with a panel. Be knowledgeable about the organization and its history as a word-class pediatric medical center. Appreciate the business side of medical care providers and the influence of healthcare reform. If meeting with scientists or physicians, know what they do. If you are in research and/or medical profession, know what those at CCHMC have done in that particular area. Look online and in the news. There is much there.

    Interview Questions
    • Why CCHMC? Be sure to articulate why working at CCHMC is important to you. Did you have a personal connection as a parent or patient? Did you have colleagues who worked there? Do you simply marvel at the innovation and life-saving care that they provide?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Cincinnati Children's Hospital in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Best way to describe the interview is if you know someone who works at cchmc you will get an interview. Outside people coming in is hard as this is a highly sought after company to work for. Everyone is nice and if you get lost to finding your interview location plenty of people are around who will help you.

    The hiring process went smoothly.It lasted about 2.5 to 3 hours and consisted of a 1:1 Interview, an interview with HR and an interview with the staff. It took two weeks for them to make an offer, which they tell you during the interview.
