    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The process was very unorganized. After applying for the position I received a phone interview about two weeks later. To finalize the interview date and time was very unprofessional. I didn't get a finalized date until 3 days before the interview. The actual interview went well and was very easy going. I have not heard back from them yet even though they said I would know within the week.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and two weeks later, I was contacted by a research coordinator through email asking me to come in for an interview. The interview (Wednesday) lasted maybe an hour or almost an hour and I was just asked thorough questions about my experiences, why I wanted to work for them in that specific research area, and given an "activity," although she stressed that it wasn't a test. She mentioned that normally, I'd have to come back in to meet a doctor in the research program, but there was one who was already free at the time, so I met him on the same day. Then, she said she'd email me in about a week to let me know if I'd advanced to the next stage. I ended up getting an email from her the next day (Thursday) asking when would be a good time to meet the director. Then, I met the director the next day (Friday), and on Monday, I was notified that I'd gotten the job and that HR would be in contact with me regarding details.

    Interview

    Firstly, Icahn is a MAZE. I could not find any receptionists to guide me to the correct area. The interview process was set up backwards. I met with the department administrator before I met with Mount Sinai HR. I was told my interview would be approx. two hours long because I would be meeting with other department staff members. When I arrived, I found out that all the staff members were busy that day so my interview was just a screening (approx. thirty minutes). I was FURIOUS because I commuted over an hour just for a screening interview which could have been done on the phone. During my interview, I was asked TWO questions then given an "activity". Once the activity was completed, I was told I would hear back from the interviewer within a few days. I did not get the chance to highlight my qualifications. The interviewer did not even explain basic job description such as job hours, salary, benefits, "typical day" etc. I was very excited to hear about this opening in this department but the interviewer's lack of training made this experience unpleasant. I felt that the interviewer did not give me an efficient interview despite meeting all required qualifications. My interviewer clearly was not trained to interview prospective staff. I should have listened to the reviews on Mount Sinai before I wasted my time and money. Also, Mount Sinai hiring administrators please review your requirements before posting a job description online. The job description stated one qualification that was required and my interviewer insisted that qualification was preferred not required. It is misleading!
