    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Johns Hopkins University in August 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process is typically conducted over a two-day, Sunday-Monday period. By starting the process on Sunday we hope that you will explore Indianapolis during the day Sunday or on Saturday if you choose to arrive early. Interviewing on only one weekday (Monday) limits your need to be absent from home during the work week while still providing you with a sense of a typical weekday operative schedule. On Sunday evening you will meet with our residents in an informal setting over the evening meal. During this Sunday evening gathering members of the faculty will also interview candidates. On Monday we provide an overview of our Department and a tour of the Hospitals. We are typically finished with this process by 1500 on Monday afternoon.

    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The initial recruitment for this position came as an e-mail from the current clinical research coordinator to my academic program. I forwarded my resume and was asked to travel to Baltimore for an in-person interview with the current coordinator and the research supervisor. The interview was relatively brief, both interviewers stated that they hadn't gotten much sleep the night before, and concluded with a tour of the department. I followed up several times via e-mail and phone and was told that a decision was still being made. Two months following my interview and having heard nothing, I made another inquiry only to be told that someone else had been hired. The supervisor mentioned that several other research coordinator positions were available and encouraged me to apply for them. I traveled to Baltimore again and met with the supervisor and the principal investigator. I discussed the available positions with the Principal Investigator for 45 minutes and was told that a decision would be made by the end of the week. After hearing nothing at the end of the week, I inquired as to the decision timetable and was told that I would have a decision by that Friday. Again, I heard nothing and waited another week before asking again. I was made to feel that I was bothering them for trying to get an answer after being given a decision timetable and was told that I would hear something soon, that was eight weeks ago. Overall, it was a negative experience with extremely poor communication. I do not expect to be treated like a nuisance when I am following up after being given a decision timeline.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Johns Hopkins University in October 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted an application through the online system. Was called in for an interview 2 weeks later. Met first with a representative from HR and was asked a series of 'tell me about a time when...' questions as well as expectations for the role, future aspirations and salary range. Then did a skills test on the computer including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a typing test. Then met with 4 would-be supervisors in a single interview. Pleasant group of people who asked typical interview questions. The experience was a nice balance of questions and conversation. Unfortunately, did not receive an offer. The whole process was very organized and very professional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in December 2009.

    Interview

    HR interview consisted of a phone interview with basic interview questions and an in person interview. Once finished with HR, met with a Senior Research Analyst, department HR, and the Division Administrator. All parties involved were kind, pleasant. Entire interview process was pretty easy and relatively stress free. - Most difficult part is finding parking, since Johns Hopkins University is located in Baltimore City.
