    Medical Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Online app with a personality-type test. Then a phone interview with a recruiter, then in-person panel-style interview with the clinical manager and 3 others. I received an offer the same day as the in-person interview, then some more back and forth with the recruiter on final details. They are very serious about only hiring the best and they *will* make you work for it. Be prepared to jump through a lot of hoops.

    Interview Details

    For internal candidates it is an awful and misleading process. There is no follow up and they leave employees in limbo while waiting on the decision.

    Project Manager II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was updated in 2011 to a recruiter screening and then a computer based problem solving, reasoning skills and multi-tasking test administered by CEB before meeting the hiring manager and team. The panel was the hiring manager initially and then a panel of my future coworkers. The questions were behavioral and technical.

    Interview Questions
    • The multi-tasking test was ridiculous where one was tasked with reasoning skills while opening and reading from a mock email system.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiations were conducted by the hiring manager that had to live within a budget. A low-ball offer that I was able to negotiate a 2% increase on.

    interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Internship fair - interviewing with several companies. We were all scheduled to meet with different companies at different times, not typical career fair. Then companies gave us feedback on our interview skills. Most comfortable interview of the day. Great HR person - discussed resume and work experiences.

    OFFICE SPECIALIST Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is incredibly slow and delayed. First you submit the online application which is forward to the HR department. Next you would have a brief phone interview with the HR rep. If you apply for multiple jobs, you do the phone interview for each job even though the questions are similar if not identical. If they think you are qualified for the position you applied for, they forward it to the department supervisor, who states whether or not they want to interview you. If they want you, the HR person sets up an interview. You interview with the department supervisor and then they will tell the HR if they are interested in you or not and what the offer is. (After my interview, the manager emailed HR right away to express interest and they did not contact me for 3 weeks! I ended up emailing her and she had to put a second request for me to be contacted) Then you go back and forth with the HR person on the offer and once you accept your training starts about a week after you get your paperwork and health clearance done at Main Campus.

    Interview Questions
    • They want you to describe a few of your flaws, which is always a Catch 22 at an interview. You don't want to tell them how you can be a poor employee, but you don't want to appear as if you can't criticize yourself.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They were able to go up a little, but refused to go higher than what the current employees were making despite the fact that I was way more qualified than the current employees. I had the same years of experience as them (including the time they worked here) and was the only one with a college degree but they would not pay me more than they were paid. I found that disappointing especially because after a few months of being here I was put at the point position and expected to do more.

    Graduate Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Cleveland Clinic in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by email informing me of a graduate program available at the Cleveland Clinic through Case Western Reserve University. I applied to the program. I was then offered to interview with the program. I was given a series of three interviews over the course of a weekend, as well as was introduced to present graduate students within the program, given a brief tour of our facilities, and was briefly taken around Cleveland to experience Cleveland. I was then accepted as one of ten for the incoming class out of thirty-some interviewees. I very quickly got the impression it is an exceedingly professional environment (which has certain downsides, especially when compared to other realms of academic science), where most people were working exceedingly hard and long with relatively little compensation, but that their needs were well-provided for and that this was a top-tier institution to work for.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked about how I would address certain specific problems in making a transgenic model organism and asked about my technical knowledge regarding how to make such an organism. I was also asked about my future plans, which at the time I was unaware of   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation at all. I was either to accept the offer or I could accept an offer with a different program.
