    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at UCLA Health in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on the UCLA website. It took approximately 2 weeks for the supervisor to call me and schedule a one on one interview. It was a very pleasant interview more like a conversation to get to know about you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at UCLA Health (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very slow interview process. Submitted my application online in October. The telephonic interview took place in January. Thereafter, I was asked to come in for an additional 3 rounds of interviews. After the last interview, it took another 2 months before I heard back from the contact person. The total interview process took over 4 months and by that time, I had accepted an offer from another company.

    Interview

    Lengthy and rigorous. Expect to complete multiple phone and in-person panel interviews which can potentially require a full day attendance at the interview location. Give yourself time to navigate through the campus to arrive on time at your interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult is the informal approach to the interviews. Unable to prepare for informality.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at UCLA Health (Westwood, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online to 2 identical openings, took about 6 weeks to get a call for my 1st interview; the 2nd interview followed one week later. Friendly department, great interviews, no trick questions. I am hopeful to move forward in the interview process which will include: a livescan fingerprint/background check through FBI & Dept of Justice, 5 references (MUST have 3 managers out of the 5) must complete an online skills survey via email, then "Talent + " behavioral telephone interview for about an hour. If hired, will require a physical exam and (I believe) a drug screen.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions for me - questions were straight forward, asking me about my previous project experience, my own design aesthetic, job skills, etc. I feel they are a group not interested in "zombie apocalypse scenario" type questions, but rather seeing if I am a good fit for the job and the group. I found it very down to earth. Lots of steps to go through but in my view, very much worth it!!   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at UCLA Health.

    Interview

    Strenuous due to the multiple steps involved. But given UCLA's prestige seems adequate. Just keep reserve time after your interview to complete the hiring process, which includes a few tests.

    Interview

    Took a while to get the interview but once I did it went well and they were very nice and professional. Met with about 5 people and one on speakerphone. Questions were detailed but easy. They expressed interest right away and sent me for the background check/fingerprinting. Then you wait......and wait.....and wait. It's a big place with lots going on so be patient. HR is very nice when you get them on the phone. Took 3 months to go through the process but eventually did accept their very generous offer.
