    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Mayo Clinic in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Behavioural Interviews are always used. At the time I applied for this position, I was out of the area and they accommodated me by doing a webcam interview. I was granted a second interview but was not offered the position in the end. They did not provide feedback and I had to email the HR partner myself after waiting a week (which I correctly assumed to mean I wasn't selected.)

    Informatics Specialist II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rochester, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Rochester, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mayo Clinic in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial 30 minute phone screening followed by a day long on-site interview. On-site interview included individual interviews with several people as well as a panel type interview with a small group. The interviews are behavioral interviews where they want you to explain your answers using examples from your own work. I found the interviews thorough and well organized. There is a definitely hierarchy in place in the culture. It seemed like it would be a very intellectually challenging place to work which is what I've been looking for. Unfortunately, the salary offered didn't meet my requirements.

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary requirements weren't met.
