Project Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Mayo Clinic.
Five person Panel Interview - Everyone was very polite and friendly. They asked about 9-10 Behavioral Questions. Interview lasted 1 1/2 hours. Mayo is big on emotional intelligence skills. Make sure you have a list of questions for them.
Reasons for Declining
Salary offered was substantially below market based on other job requisitions in the area for the same type of position.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in January 2012.
An outsider getting hired as a Project Manager at Mayo clinic is as hard as it can get I guess. Mayo is a conservative organization and they don't take chance bringing in external PM's. If you are selected for an interview after a long wait, the interview process is panel based. Questions are scenario based and you need to be prepared to provide an answer in STAR approach. A straight yes/no is no good. You have to explain the situation, task, action and results in sequence. Sometime's its quite tough to make up the answer in the format they are expecting. Moreover salary structure for PM's are not per industry standard
- Some of the scenario based questions, I thought was not relevant to the position. My advise is to think of many situations/scenarios that you have been and come up with appropriate answer. Also, talking to a colleague or a friend to understand their experience will also help Answer Question

They already had who they wanted to hire and everyone who gets interviewed is just part of the process. It's a formality
