    Web Content Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

    Interview Details

    Johns Hopkins Medecine is notorious for a slow, cumbersome, multitiered, and disjointed interview process in which various departments such as OccHealth, HR, and management do not always receive the necessary documentation to allow for a smooth and efficient hiring process. They also tend to place applicants through marathon interview session with multiple employees without comprehensively explaining each individual's role and how he/she may or MAY NOT interact with the new hire on any given day. I know that I interviewed with a number of people for whom I never directly worked with or for.

    All that being said, while unwieldy, slow, and sometimes confusing, everyone that I interviewed with was kind, candid, insightful, and clearly interested (eventually invested) in my success.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an initial contact just a few days after my application submission. I was to come in for assessment testings which included mostly grammar and a few basic mathematical questions. You had to answer as many as you could within the amount of time designated on the computer. I then had my initial interview with an HR representative who asked be the basic questions, explained the position to me, told me a little history about the organization and gave me favorable feedback that I would be recommended for a second interview.

    I attended the second interview with three attorneys from the department . They each had a list of questions they asked me. The questions were typical. Scenario questions, strengths and weaknesses, and why I am looking for a new position. It did seem a bit overwhelming because each attorney did have a long list of questions I had to answer and was somewhat overlapping.

    After the interview I was told It I should hear back in a few weeks, however, I did not hear back from them and in fact you have to go online to determine what your status is.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

    Interview Details

    Communication with the hiring manager was excellent. First, a phone interview with several people, standard questions, about 30 minutes total. Then, an in person interview with the managers of several departments, but I went one at a time, so had 3 half hour interviews back to back to back, which was tiring.

    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.
