Research Analyst Interview

Research Analyst

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at UC San Francisco.

Interview Details – The interview process was easy but the hiring process was cumbersome. The on boarding process was not very informative and at SF General Hospital--far from where I would be working.

Interview Question – How will you be able to handle not just making corrections but making sure that others do not keep making the same mistakes--and learn from the corrections?   View Answer

San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UC San Francisco in December 2010.

Interview Details – Around 7 days after I submitted my online application, I was offered a phone interview. I think UCSF usually does in person interviews right away, but I was not a local applicant, so it made more sense to first do a phone interview. After the phone interview, I was asked to provide the contact information of 3 references. After references were checked, I was offered an in person interview. At UCSF, your education (college you attended and GPA) seem to matter a lot. The interview questions were mostly about research experience and personality fit.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had a problem with your supervisor and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at UC San Francisco in December 2011.

Interview Details – I was referred by an employee for the position and contacted for a panel interview. Half the people who were supposed to be on the panel did now show up. The rest were asking simple easy questions about my background. The interviewers were very friendly. They were looking for someone with experience in a particular speciality and it was obvious just from my resume that I had not worked in that speciality previously. It was a waste of time for me and for them. I did get the standard email of "we will get back to you" but I did not receive an offer
