Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Baltimore, MD

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – None   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was upfront with my salary expectations and they were met without negotiation.

Clinical Laboratory Scientist Interview

Clinical Laboratory Scientist

I applied online and interviewed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Interview Details – Met with the HR department, who gave an overview of the institution. Took me to the department where the interview was to take place, and introduced me to the supervisor.

Senior Research Program Manager Interview

Senior Research Program Manager
Baltimore, MD

I applied online and 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 Question – 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.
