    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2014.

    Interview

    My hiring and interview process experience was great for the current position. However, I do feel there is a large gap between the interviews. I was also one out of two top candidates for another position at UC, in which the interviews were set up with four different people over a course of six months and the fifth interview was still pending when I accepted the Research Coordinator position instead. However, for both positions, the interviewers were very friendly and I enjoyed interviewing with them. For the current position, I had three interviews. The first was a phone screen, second by the Professor hiring me and third by another Professor in the department. The third interview was very detailed and more intense than the three ones, asking a variety of questions about personal and professional life and also, asking what I would do in different case scenarios. Overall it was a good interview to judge how well suited I was for the position. My future goals were also considered.

    Interview Questions

    • I think the most difficult question I was asked was what was the biggest mistake I think I made in my personal life, and I was also asked the same for my professional life.   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    It was short-lived. I did not get the salary I was hoping for, but I accepted the position as it was a bridge to my future goals. The salary was in between what I asked and what was offered to me.

    Interview

    Interview: Usually varies from Professor to Prof.. Previous experience and good grades do help. You need to follow the research of that prof. and read the recent papers and articles published.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was very straight forward with my direct boss, in that I had to tell briefly my previous job experience. Then, I had the chance to talk a little about myself, and after 15 minutes, the interview was over. Later, I was introduced to the employees in the entire floor.

    Interview Questions

    • At the end of the interview I was asked how much I was expected to get paid. Although I was aware that at some point I was going to be asked the question (maybe a second interview of pre-selected candidates, or a phone call), I was surprised by the fact that my boss took his decision of hiring me, after a 10 min interview.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I asked for more than they were expected to pay, although I knew I was asking more. Then, it was easier to negotiate the middle ground payment.
