Research Associate Interview

Research Associate

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and via email directly to the PI. I prefer direct email as it seems to get the best results. The emails were very good and we had a phone interview for about an hour, then I was flown out for an in-person interview, met some other groups, and was given a tour. In general I liked the PI but I was told to expect to hear from them within 2 weeks (never a good sign) and I felt the interview was kind of a wash (not good or bad) which is also not great. The biggest issue I had was that I offered to cover my own expenses and they insisted they would do so. However, my attempts to get reimbursement have been ignored, so just keep that in mind. Not too worried overall though, luckily my prospects were pretty full and things have turned out nicely regardless.

Interview Question – It was a little different of an interview, I'm used to hard technical questions but this felt a lot more like them interviewing for me than me for them. It was as if I was trying to be sold on the job, not the other way around. I have no doubt it's very different from person to person though.   Answer Question

Fundraiser Interview

Fundraiser

I applied online and interviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York).

Interview Details – The manager that interviewed me skipped the initial interview with HR because HR is so very slow there. About six interviews occured in one day (because I was from out of town) and this is something that is very useful for the applicant - it gives you a chance to see many aspects of the department. I also interviewed with the people that I would be supervising/working with. This did not happen in a subsequent position and that fact alone was a red flag.

Interview Question – A question that basically required that I convince them that I was not just taking any job that would relocate me to New York City.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Everything was very fast, due entirely to the hiring style of the manager.
