    First, you meet with a representative from Human Resources. She will ask you general questions that try to size up your personality. Then you interview with your potential manager and they will ask more position-centric questions and give you a technical assessment. Usually the assessment is JavaScript or .NET. After that, there is a panel interview with the people that you would actually work with, and yes they are judging your abilities and whether or not they want to work with you. After that, it's usually a week before you get an offer.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview after the connection had been established by my PhD mentor. We then had a casual interview during which we discussed my research experience, career trajectory, interests, skills, etc. I had already been working for another PI in Research, so we also discussed what I was currently doing and what I was hoping to get from a new position in terms of content, schedule, and tuition funding. Several more emails, phone calls, and informal meetings happened before the university worked out joint funding with the research department I was going to work with.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Several meetings, emails, etc between myself, the PI, and my PhD mentor to work out a funding option, since the hospital pays for my PhD stipend.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR a couple of weeks after I submitted my application online. I first interviewed with an HR manager and the interview questions were pretty typical. I then moved on to move to the department that I worked in to do an interview with people who were on my team. They were incredibly nice and genuinely seemed interested in my work experience. I felt comfortable the entire time. They had other candidates to interview after me, so I was offered the job about 2 weeks later and accepted.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was already working at Children's, so the first interview was in person. A little bit of a meet and greet. The second interview was a ssh session and assessment of my programming skills. There were three questions, that were mostly scripting based questions. I also met with the rest of the staff. After accepting the job, and then going through the process from the other perspective, meeting the staff is important and is used to determine if the interviewee is a good fit.

    Interview Questions
    • Because this is a position that involved biological research, there was a question that went deeper into my biological knowledge than I expected. Be prepared to answer questions from all areas.   Answer Question

    Data Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was considering a salary position after being out on my own consulting as a software architect and manager for over 5 years. When I showed up at HR it was like they were herding cattle. When the receptionist pointed me to the no cell phone sign I promptly left the building to complete my conversation. The meeting with the HR person for the specific IT department went like this.

    IT HR: What are you looking to make?
    ME: What is the salary range?
    IT HR: I can only tell you the bottom of the range is 56,000
    ME: That's less than I was making in 1999 (10+ yrs ago). I'm over six figures now.
    (at this point the HR person was ready to end the interview had I not said...)
    ME: Why don't I meet the team and talk to them for a bit and find out what type of things they are working on.

    (at which point I had a great conversation about the impact and opportunity of the Internet on Healthcare, and mobile technologies, with a couple middle managers for 1.5 hours. During the conversation it became clear they wanted an ETL/database monkey and the position was not for me, but it was a nice conversation none the less.)
