Research Technician Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in April 2015.
I went through two rounds of interviews. One with the PI and the next with the research technicians and post doc. References were called and ended up getting the offer the next day. Everyone was very nice and inviting. The entire process took about a month or so, but I applied in February. Great experience!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in July 2014.
Two rounds of interviews, 5 people in the first and 7 people in the second with one last interview with the boss. Didn't hear back from the boss for two months and suddenly got an offer and a deadline to accept! It was a hard decision.

Asked for more money, HR was difficult to budge and only added a few hundred more to my annual salary.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering in July 2014.
I was not hired, I was referred to by my old professor, and was called about a month later. The people were friendly, including the doctor that interviewed me. After about a half hour with him, he gave me a tour of the lab and then led me to a second interviewer.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering in February 2014.
Sent in my application and then about 4 weeks later was contacted by one of the current lab technicians. We then set up a time and day for interview quick and easy. The interview processes was very good- I was questioned by 4 lab members and the PI. Things went well but no offer in the end.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in April 2012.
I had a phone interview with the HR and she asked pretty easy questions like: What do you want to do after 5 years? Why have you applied to MSKCC? After that I had a video interview with her as well and she explained me about the working hours and the salary.(which was low as per my expectations) Later, I had an interview with the PI of the lab which was not even close to a typical interview. He explained me what kind of work I will be doing and what research they carry out. He just asked me only one or two questions regarding my future goals and if I would like to go ahead with the job. He made me meet his lab members who were all very warm and friendly. I felt I had almost got the job but in vain! They got someone more experienced than me, that is what the HR said. But later she said she will get back to me for any more job openings in any labs.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in June 2010.
The process was relatively pain-free. We started by establishing expectations (like all we'll be working on and the type of credit/satisfaction we'll receive). We discussed work ethics and team compatibility and arrived to a offer a few hours after the interview. It took a while to go through HR but nonetheless a painless process.
Negotiation is difficult with a NPO. However, the work hours are flexible - as long as you get the work done.
