    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I sent a resume and cover letter to the principal investigator, who responded almost immediately, offering me a call, and if it went well, an in-person interview. The call was relatively informal, mostly one of the current coordinators telling me about what their lab did, with a few questions about my career goals and why I wanted to work there. After the call, I was offered an in-person interview, which was pretty short, mostly just fit questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an onsite interview by an assistant of the lab and since I was unable to drive up to Boston that week I was given the option of a Skype interview. The interview was about 30-45 minutes in length and not very difficult it had some detailed questions pertaining to skills/experience and more behavioral questions, overall it seemed to have gone very well and I ended it feeling confident in either a follow up interview or perhaps even an offer. 2 weeks after the interview I followed up with the lab with an email to see the status of the position. In total it has been over 4 weeks since my interview and I still have not heard a response, which is very unprofessional, especially when it takes 2 seconds to send out an email with a simple update.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to speak in detail about my past experience and was asked questions about my resume. They had questions prepared, but it ended up being more of a conversationally structured interview. They were already familiar with my experience and had clearly gone over my resume so we mostly discussed specifics. I was interviewed by several people in succession over the course of a few hours, each meeting was 1 on 1. My interviewers spoke a lot about the project and I was given a tour of the lab after we spoke, then I met other people in the lab. I was offered the position within 24 hours after the interview.

    Interview

    Very friendly, cared very much about what type of person you are not so much can you answer technical questions. Do ask some questions pertaining to past experience, but they try to get a feel for who you are versus can you recall a specific protocol.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone call interview three days later that lasted around 30 minutes (with two interviewers), asked general questions in regards to resume, skills, and education background. Then got an in-person interview after two weeks and heard back a couple days later. Typical interview questions and orientation information about their lab, nothing too surprising.
