    Senior Research Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Interview Details

    It took about two weeks after submitting my application to get an email from lab supervisor requesting a phone interview. The phone interview was brief and went well, so I was invited to come in for a face to face interview a week later. The next week I was offered the job and accepted, however it takes a month for HR and background checks to be completed. So start date is a month after job acceptance. Which is a bit inconvenient.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you troubleshoot and give me an example of a situation. Walk me through it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Based on my experience they increased the salary without telling me. So that was a very nice surprise. They are very fair and considerate.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application and heard back with a request for an interview about 3 weeks later. We scheduled an interview for the following week. The first round was about 45 minutes, with 2 employees who are of the same title as the job for which I was applying. They first asked me about myself and my resume and then moved into a section of behavioral-based questions. It was pretty relaxed and they were friendly. We then proceeded with an interview with the department head, with whom I spoke about my resume and general life (personal, school, and professional) with. It was an overall good experience but I withdrew my application because the salary was below what I could really accept.

    Interview Questions
    • What are your salary expectations. Tell us about a time you failed and what you did about it. Several behavioral based questions but mostly standard in that respect.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Interview Details

    It took a little under two months for them to respond to my application. They contacted me via email and set up a phone interview for the next day, followed by a 4-hour in-person interview series a week later. The interview series was 8 30-minute interviews with the various faculty/staff. I appreciated only having to go in-person once. After that, I waited a week for a decision.

    Interview Questions
    • They quizzed me thoroughly on my knowledge of programming topics.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was little to no negotiation. As they explained it, programmer salaries are governed by the NCI, our #1 funding source.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview process once called to interview. Really difficult to get an interview here, though. They receive about 350K applications hospital-wide per year and hire less than 3,000 each year.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, 20min, pretty standard and chill - the interviewer asked about what attracted me to the position, what my qualifications, and career outlook. Most of it was me asking questions about the position (what does a typical day look like) and learning about the different aspects of the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two one-on-one interviews and an interview with the existing CRCs. One of the individuals I interviewed with one-on-one was rude and condescending, barely made eye contact, and even checked their e-mail during the interview. I was also asked an inappropriate question. The other interviews were okay, and they gave me a good idea of what the job would be like. However, it did not seem like a friendly work environment overall.
