    Summer Teaching Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Carlisle, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlisle, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Johns Hopkins University in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly painless. It essentially consisted of a phone interview. Most questions were regarding how you would handle particular situations with instructors, students, managers, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Like I said earlier, the questions are primarily geared towards how you would handle various situations if you were given the position. An example of such a question would be how you would handle a situation where you disagreed with how the instructor of the course was handling a particular lesson; would you stand up and confront it during the lesson, wait until after the lesson, not address it at all, etc?   Answer Question

    Research Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Johns Hopkins University in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a response a month after applying. Interviewed directly with the lab manager, principal investigator, and hiring manager. The entire interview lasted 2.5 hours. After some mention that I was a top candidate for the position, I received a request for my references from the lab manager and never heard anything from HR or the lab after that. My references were never contacted, which was irritating and a waste of time. Overall, my experiences with the hiring process at JHU have been negative.
