    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Tufts University.

    Interview Details

    I've had two different positions within this company and each time there was a long lag time between submitting my resume and being contacted for an interview; but once I was interviewed the offers were swift. I was interviewed by someone from human resources and then the primary investigator. The person from human resources was great and the interview process went smoothly.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult or unexpected interview questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was told that the salary was non-negotiable, so I didn't try to negotiate (silly me!).

    I applied through their website. Received a phone call about a week later and completed an in-person interview with human resources and with the two principal investigators of the study. I received a call a few hours after I left with an offer. I decided not to take the job because of the money they were offering. Overall very positive experience, great questions, very prepared.

    Camus Center Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Tufts University.

    Interview Details

    Interview and hiring process were not extremely rigorous. Office is looking for motivated and flexible students, as hours are largely during the day at school and staff needs to be self starters. Interview was mostly about being able to fill openings throughout the day, and ability to move between positions in the office.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were particularly unexpected. Be prepared to talk about yourself and justify why you're suited to work in an on-campus position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tufts University.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume online and 2 weeks later had an in-person 30 minute interview. This interview was with one of the supervisors to which the position reported. Interview was as expected, lots of questions about how my past work experience matched the job description. I was given plenty of time to ask questions as well. From there HR asked for my references within 24 hours and I met with an HR rep to do paperwork. They do confirm your educational record and request transcripts. I had a verbal offer about 1 week after the initial interview.

    Interview Questions
    • All were about past work experiences and my background, nothing tricky. There were a few "tell me about a time when.."   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't think the title and pay matched the responsibilities. There were also some personal logistics around hours that weren't a great match.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Tufts University in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very fast interview process, interviewed by phone and then shortly thereafter asked for a in-person interview. Nice office, sort of friendly staff, neutral interviewers. Did not really describe job tasks, just asked me questions. Said they would get back to me either way-- never did. Will not be applying to this particular office of Tufts again. Thought the office was very monotone, which concerned me. Nice campus, close to Davis Sq. and cultural activities. Nice area.

    Research Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tufts University.

    Interview Details

    Application through the job opportunities website at Tufts. Interview seemed a little rushed, like interviewer was less prepared than I was. Communication of the details of the interview was not great so I ended up having an interview with the lab director right after my interview with HR. I would recommend asking who you will be speaking with. Only one day of interviews was required and they called me the following Friday offering the job. They told me I only had 1 day to decide whether I wanted the job or not, and being a recent college grad I accepted even though I had other interviews lined up. I suggest you ask about a timeline for potential hires in case something like this happens and you are unsure whether you want to take the job.

    Interview Questions
    • All very typical, but probably the most difficult: What do you have to offer that no one other candidate can offer?   View Answer
