    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submission of job application is very simple. A few contact details and resume, cover letter is all that is expected unlike other places where you are made to fill out a series of questions. Interview process was straight forward. One personal interview. After you are hired, there is a background verification step that takes about 10 to 12 days followed by a meeting with HR to discuss the benefits, insurance, and other formal paper work. Mandatory health check up. Once you start work, there is an orientation session.

    Programmer/Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on the university career site. Within a couple of weeks I was notified via email of my selection for the interview process.

    Initial round was an informal chat with the IT department HR regarding my current course, previous employment and the kind of opportunity I was seeking.

    Post this; I was selected for a 1 on 1 interview with the Director of IT team. The interview started with a casual chat, followed by detailed question about my previous work experience and situation based questions on my previous job. This was accompanied by another round of behavioral questions. The entire process lasted an hour and I felt at ease with the approach that the IT director had taken

    After this, there was a wait time of 4-5 days and I was called for the final round with the panel. This was a more technical setting as there were folks from the application teams. It was a 4 member team, where 2 of them would ask questions in a sequential pattern while the other 2 members were poised as keen observers with occasional nodding.

    The round consisted of a detail review of different sections of my resume and a deep dive into my previous projects and the role I played. This was intermixed with some technical evaluations based on the skill set I had on my resume.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very personal interview, but the best interview I've had in a while. I was actually able to sit in with the other woman who would be my counterpart and see exactly what i would be doign a a daily bases. Very transparent in what i would be doign versus other interviews where you are going around in circles with no clear idea of what you willa ctually be doing.
