    First, phone interview. Typical and very low key. In person interview was slightly more aggressive with questions and discussed skills. Third interview wasn't an interview... more like meeting the big wigs in the office.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Duke University Health System.

    Interview

    Interview took an hour and a half. Interviewed with 3 different people because they had two different positions available. It has been several years since I have had to interview for a job, so I probably was not prepared for what I was about to walk into. Most of the interview questions were behavioral based questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I should've been a little better prepared for this interview. Oh well, maybe next time.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was ok, long for a day and met with several staff members, and was given a lunch break. Very unorganized when I arrived and had to wait for a team member to come and bring me upstairs. The staff was very nosey and loud.
