Clinical Research Coordinator III Interview

Clinical Research Coordinator III

I applied through other source and interviewed at Emory University.

Interview Details – Worked here in the past. Was hired back. Interview process consisted of sending resume and one meeting with boss. Pretty simple. Most people are referral hires in the department. No aptitude/personality tests. There is a background/drug screen after you've been given an offer.

Negotiation Details – Good luck negotiating. HR is pretty unlikely to offer a better salary since they have to make sure that everyone gets paid the same amount for a job title with similar work experience/background.

Associate Director Interview

Associate Director
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Emory University in January 2012.

Interview Details – Must apply via Emory University HR website. Be prepared to enter details about educational background as well as contact information for all professional references up front.

Negotiation Details – No ability to negotiate. Even though salary was advertised with a $15K range, hiring manager was only able to offer base level advertsied--this is quite common in higher education.
