    It took several months to get a call for an interview. The interview process was in two stages. Once, with HR, just a simple overview and tentative offer. The second was with the head of the department. I had to pass a background check.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers were pleasant and easy to speak with; it was more conversation which is the kind of interview I prefer. At the end I asked about next steps and was anticipating a second interview to be scheduled the following week, but they ended up hiring internally without doing the second round. Despite this, I rather enjoyed the experience.

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected questions were posed. I was asked to describe a project that did not come out quite as I had hoped and what I would have done differently.   Answer Question

    Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, NH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very low key. They asked me "Why DHMC?" "Why the Research Coordinator position?" and then asked me a lot about my interests and goals. Much of the time involved me asking them questions, which was very important.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was "how long do you see yourself working here?" I thought this job was typically about a 2 year position. They want someone for longer, and made that clear to me in the interview.   Answer Question

    Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, NH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Called for an interview, which lasted an hour. Two weeks later requested an in person interview, which lasted all day. This was broken up into one hour blocks. Met with both managers and employees in two groups, nurse managers and lastly Human resources (HR). Each block I had questions that varied from benign to difficult opinion based. The all day part was very well organized and followed an itinerary.

    Interview Questions
    • How well is your knowledge of process management.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I could tell from the beginning the managers where having a power struggle or did not have a clear direction for the department. The immediate manager probably would not have been the most satisfactory to be employed by. Might have used or using a Human resources model of management (not to be confused with HR dept.) that would harbor a sense of future resentment among the employees.
    Considering the location and scope of the facility the initial offer should have been higher.

    Professor of Surgery, Plastic Surgeon Interview

    Interview Details

    This all took place 17 years ago. Initial contact was informal and then was invited for an initial exploratory visit. That led to a second visit, more interviews/meetings, then job offer.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate very aggressively. I asked for more than what was offered and got a little increase but it was quite a bit less than I had expected compared to what I heard from other surgeons working in New England.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, NH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    HR is going through transition right now so it is not the same as 7yrs ago. Submit an nonlinear application with resume and cover letter. Then I got a phone interview with a nurse recruiter. He then told me which units were hiring and I told him my interests. He set up interviews with the managers and had the interviews. Now it took them awhile to contact me before the phone interview so communication is not the greatest.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashua, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews. The first was with my supervisor and the office manager. The interviewers had a packet of questions. There were probably 30 questions. The questions made you think, and were mostly about your thoughts on patient-centered care. The second interview was with one of the other employees I would be working with. This employee did not have any specific questions, rather just got a feel for my personality to see if this would be a good fit/good team.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was how would you confront someone who is not pulling their weight/completely their work.   Answer Question
