Director Sleep Disorders & Research Center/Research Associate Professor Interview

Director Sleep Disorders & Research Center/Research Associate Professor

Interviewed at UAMS Medical Center

Interview Details – I was called by the Professor of Anatomy who had started doing sleep research and sleep tests, but was leaving the University. He called to see if I was interested in starting a sleep disorders and research center. I was an Assistant Professor of Neurology & Psychiatry at the time. I said would be interested. The Head of Pulmonary called and arranged an interview, with me and my family at UAMS. I accepted the position and established a 4 bedroom sleep disorders and research center, where I conducted 3 Federal grants and provided clinical evaluations of patients with sleep disorders. The Head of the department and other staff and employees were very friendly and provided excellent teaching, research and clinical programs.

Interview Question – Of the interview the most difficult question was would you accept x salary.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The negotiating phase was cordial, understanding and took only a couple of weeks to finalize. Since they had much more of what I wanted, with the added benefits and move closer to relatives, etc., it was an offer that I could not refuse. I was very grateful to U. Miami School of Medicine however, since they got me started on my academic career and also supported my fledgling early efforts.

Interview Details – I went through multiple interviews for the position that I was trying to get most recently. It was not a bad experience and the questions were as expected. It was a group interview and each person obviously had the same canned questions to ask interviewees.

RN I Interview

RN I

I applied online - interviewed at UAMS Medical Center in November 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online , through the UAMS website in October. This is a good time to apply at a hospital because they are gearing up to hire for the new year however; there will be many additional applicants applying in December since nursing school classes graduate then so October is a good month to apply. HR set me up with the floor manager for an interview and I brought my CV with me to the interview. I was hired on the spot and completed my new employment physical/screening that same day. I started in Jan 2012

Interview Question – "Give an example of a conflict you were involved with at the workplace and describe how you handled it"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, especially as a new grad nurse. There is hardly negotiations in the nursing realm since the hospitals have to basically stick to what they are budgeted for in hiring new people.
