    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I applied on line as directed. They want you to take some type of psychological test after you fill out your info. The test is so unrealistic. Be careful in how you answer these questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I'm quite qualified for a position. The test questions are basically about how you relate to others in a work environment.   1 Answer

    I've interview in 3 different departments for receptionist. Each interview was different. The first was a panel interview that consisted of the hiring manager, admin asst, 1 current receptionist, a psc, and head psc. It lasted about an hour and everyone was pretty nice and it was laid back. The second dept it was just myself and the hiring manager. The third department was another panel with the hiring manager, myself, and a nursing supervisor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviews over the course of about 3 weeks. First I met with my (now) boss, and the team/people I would be supervising. I came in later to meet with 2 clinicians I would be working closely with. Everyone was very casual and nice. They were more concerned with my ability to maintain the cohesion/closeness of the group, which I think is a good thing. It's a very supportive environment. People work hard, but they also act like regular people and weren't stuck up. I was SO nervous and very stressed due to a cross-country move and a dying pet, so these were NOT my best interviews. I was hired for a lower position than I originally applied for, but was told that if it goes well, there may be potential for promotion.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle a situation in which you did not agree with your supervisor? Why aren't you getting a PhD? Do you have plans to move/leave the area in the next 1-2 years? What is your approach to supervising others? What makes you qualified for this position? Do you feel like you're a team player?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was on a panel interview with four judges. They asked me about my nursing experience, why I wanted to be a nurse, and about MD Anderson's values. Everyone was very friendly and nice. I left the interview feeling very good about it. They also did a phone interview before. However it did take about 2 weeks to hear back from them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was easy, you meet with a panel of people some that are from the department and some that are not. They ask you questions about your resume and want you to elaborate. The staff that is from the department ask you questions like what's the most patients that you have ever seen in a day. Reason is they like to brag about how many patients the department sees every single day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring of MD Anderson is slow. HR is not quite on top of their game. After applying you will receive an email to test for the position. If you pass, and the department has received your resume, you will then receive an email or a call from HR informing you the department would like to interview you.
