    Interview Details

    HR was very professional during first interview ~ They reposted job right after my second interview
    I thought the interview went well, I really felt by the way they talked I was a top candidate . I called them two weeks after interview to find I was no longer being considered even though my on line status was active/ in review

    Interview Questions
    • Role plays that completely caught me off guard during the interviews ~ a bit unfair to applicants that would have no orientation to hospital policies at this point in the process~ Position was advertised that complete training would be provided along with ongoing guidance and support, seemed they expected to much before training   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time where you worked with someone who was difficult to work with and what did you do to alleviate the problem?   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially replied to a posting on LinkedIn. I received an email asking me to fill out the full application online which was very lengthy and repetitive. Once that was complete I was emailed a short questionnaire to fill out with questions related to my experience and the position. After that was completed I was invited in for a 1:1 interview with the Dir of Employment Services. The interview lasted approximately 45 minutes. I was told that she was wrapping up interviews within the week and would let me know a decision either way. After three weeks with no contact, I sent an email to which I received a quick reply saying that they moved forward with a different candidate.

    Application Details

    I applied 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.
