    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straightforward. The entire process took much longer than expected. From submission of application to time of hire took close to two months. There was a good bit of time between the first and second interviews. The second interview was a group interview and some of the participants seemed a bit unprepared. None of the interview questions were difficult or required extended thought. After job offer was made and accepted, another 2-3 weeks passed before orientation and first day of work.

    Senior Research Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

    Interview Details

    The PI was more interested in my appearance than my skills, knowledge and education. I interviewed for, and accepted, a position that was supposed to be challenging an interesting. Once I began, I learned that the job was neither. There was no interest in innovation, conducting research that could really benefit society, or even conducting research that was ethical. I was so disappointed.
    The hiring process was tedious. It took nearly 2 months to process my paperwork once an offer was made.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected questions were asked, let alone questions that would allow the PI to truly assess my skills.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was told that the salary I was offered was the maximum for the position. Six months after starting, I learned that this was not the case. I worked with HR to correct this. It took another six months to bring my salary up to the level it should have been based on my years of experience, education, and skills. I was given a 30% increase, but it was not made retroactive, even though the PI admitted that the original salary was a mistake.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Interesting. This hospital does not pay as well as other area hospitals, you are getting to add the position to your resume, so suggest trying to work there early in your career. Offerred yet another position several years later, but they "could not afford" me.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was mostly like all other phone interviews (first round). I interviewed two people separately and they asked the same questions so I was more ready and relax the second day. They talked about the position first and then asked routine behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was a student in The Johns Hopkins Hospital's Schools of Radiography and was on route to graduate the program and pass my boards as a radiographer. In order to do MRI you need to first be a radiographer. Being in the Hopkins' radiography program we were given the opportunity to apply to the CT program or MRI program. I chose MRI because thats what I was interested in. They asked me questions about what I knew about MRI. They asked me questions about my strengths, weaknesses, why they should pick me, and they also asked about if I had any previous experience in MRI. In order to be considered for an interview, you need to pay a application fee, apply, write an essay, and do a shadow day at the hospital in the MRI department.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with my current boss and her boss.

    Both interviews were casual. My current boss asked me a lot of questions about managing people. She asked me what i would do in situations where you have difficult employees. I later found out why, i would be managing difficult people.

    My boss's boss was more concerned with my accomplishments at my other job and it was more of a discussion about how I could improve their process as I had in my previous job. Very casual, jokes told at both interviews.

    • How would you motivate a staff that is actively disengaged, when you have never done it before?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was unable to negotiate because I was an internal transfer and the company was under financial stress. I knew going into all I could could get was the minimum of the job's salary bracket.
