I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN).
I was contacted for a phone interview with the hiring manager and, approximately 3 weeks later, I was invited to interview in-person. At my visit to Mayo, I was treated graciously. I first received a tour and informal interaction with other research coordinators. Thereafter, an HR rep came to explain benefits and policies. I also met the Hiring Manager to discuss the position and answer further questions. The day finished with a panel interview consisting of mostly behavioral interview questions and questions about my skills and work experiences from various potential supervisors.

Helpful (1)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Scottsdale, AZ) in June 2015.
Applied June 3rd and received a call a week later for an interview. The interview process was relatively quickly. It was a group interview with three people including the supervisor, HR employee and a current employee in a similar position. Interview questions were all behavior based for this position. Be prepared. These interviews are not an "I'm going to wing it" interview.
I did not negotiate pay rate. My degree, with the position offered raised the base pay rate.

I applied online and they got back to me within a few weeks. I had a panel interview setup 2-3 weeks in advance. Interview process went smoothly and they even reimburse gas/food expenses.

Phone interview followed by three interviews from phone interview to offer spanning roughly four months. I initially met with other analysts and one senior analyst for my first in person interview, the second was with two analysts and the privacy officer, finally the third interview was with the Chief Privacy Officer for Mayo. The first two interviews focus a bit on background and personal career growth followed by behavioral type questions. The third interview was much more hands on with the actual work and strategies for the department and essentially was more of a we like you prove your the best candidate.
