    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

    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?

    Interview

    Straightforward interview process which involved phone interview(s) then on-site visit. HR representative seemed a bit "off" and not well organized. Everyone was pleasant and professional. Hiring manager was pleasant however unprofessional post-interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview/screening with HR. Then was contacted for a web interview which lasted less than an hour. 6 weeks passed and I received a call from HR asking to meet with me when I am there next week for my in person interview - but nobody called me about an in person interview. The confusion was sorted out the next day, but there was no flex given in dates as an agenda for 2 days of interviews was already set up (I was coming from out of town) even though I was only given a weeks notice.

    The disorganization got worse. I showed up 10 minutes before my appointed time, but was told that I was given the wrong agenda and was over an hour early. During my time there, my agenda was revised 5 times. There was no person appointed to coordinate my interviews, I relied on the receptionist to provide instructions on how to get to different locations. There was large gaps between appointments, but the building is isolated, so would end up having to go sit in a lobby for up to 2.5 hours at a time. The majority of the interviews were not back to back, so I had to kill time between.

    Some of the folks were fantastic and I enjoyed talking to them and some had not read my resume or the job description (there were multiple vacant positions being recruited for, so they didn't know which job I was there for). However, with no one that was coordinating, there was nobody to check in with at the end of the 2 days. The whole thing felt very disorganized and as if the department was not unified and functioning as a team.

    Interview Questions

    • Physicians that wanted to know what the others had told me (engage in gossip type behavior, not job specific information).   Answer Question
