Johns Hopkins Health System Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Supervisor Help Desk Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Johns Hopkins Health System in July 2013.
Interview Details – The online application process was cumbersome but no more than other large organizations. I found it peculiar that the initial point of contact was the supervisor of the hiring manager, and that I only spoke with two people at length.
Salary range was low but not unexpected for an institution of this nature.
Interview Question – The 50 questions about my technical aptitude on everything from networking to servers to data storage. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Clerk Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Johns Hopkins Health System in May 2010.
Interview Details – They interview in groups or one-on-one. Basic questioning, just be prepared to not only answer the questions in-depth but also to exude a positive attitude. This is not a place for negativity or laziness! This is the typical advice for ANY interview. Seriously, I'm not going to tell you word for word what I was asked. If you're prepared, you're prepared - and if you can't handle their interview process I find it unlikely you're prepared for an interview anywhere! If you are unsure, just do a general Google search for interview tips and practice.
Research Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johns Hopkins Health System in June 2012.
Interview Details – Sent my CV/resume and cover letter to PI. Heard back within a week. Scheduled an interview the following week. All communications were handled by the PI's assistant.. Interviewed in person. Head PI was quite busy in the office, since he was a practicing physician in addition to a researcher. Wait was not too long though!
