    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Fairly relaxed interview. Once accepted, however, obtaining clearance from occupational health was a pain in the butt (blood tests, then waiting, then getting vaccination boosters, then waiting again, tb test, waiting, getting test read). It took about a month to get me cleared to work.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine (Baltimore, MD) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The process for interviewing really depends on which department, center, or institute you talk with. Some are very formal, others are totally informal and can be very impromptu. Expect a very long time for the entire process to be completed. Also, the HR department filters out many of the CVs that are submitted online, so if you never hear back it could be that the CV was not forwarded to the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no behavioral questions, but again, every group is different.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary is usually pretty hard to negotiate at Hopkins, they know they pay less than industry and that their name brand recognition makes up for it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine (Baltimore, MD) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal. The PI had a general conversation about my previous work, and what I expected of my new job. The focus of the interview however was more on how they couldn't offer as much as I deserved. Very few technical questions were asked, however I did get to see the lab so I got a feel of whether I liked the kind of work they did.

    Interview Questions

    • Some questions were asked about my personal life, that aimed at relocation of my family etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay wasn't competitive.
