Interview Details – Online application process. KEEP Applying. You will get many automated responses, but if you keep applying you will eventually be called. Took about 3-4 weeks of applying for every position that popped up for this position title. Don't worry about the unit, just get your foot in the door. Called to set up an interview for the next week. Within two days of interview (weekend included) I was called and offered a job. Drug test the next day, be prepared to drop everything and get it done as you have a 24hour deadline to do it. A physical exam and vaccinations follow. Somewhere in there HR completes a background check.

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating. They offer, tell you the process and wages and you accept or decline. At this level of the profession this is typical.

Interview Details – HR calls to schedule both the HR screening & group interview at the same time. The HR screening is a straight rehash of resume experience, education, & skills. No actually screening since in person interview was already scheduled.
The in person interview was explained to be one on one, but was performed by a group. We walked by several available conference rooms and into a small cramped office. The first question was 'Are you sure you are still interested in this job', which caught me off guard. As the interview proceeded, it was clear the director did not know much about the position but continued to ask questions like 'Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with someone at work' & 'Tell me about a time when you took an active leadership role on a project'. Not so much of a team interview as a director asking standard questions and everyone else agreeing with them. No reference to the actually job or job description provided.
Interview Question – There was a hidden requirement that didn't come up until the in person interview. It was not in the job description or either of the HR calls, and it was a deal breaker. 'Do you have experience with the semi-proprietary software Epic/O2?' Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center in March 2009.
Interview Details – In hindsight, the interview was to satisfy an ethnic quota for a community research team lacking specific markers. My skill and abilities were never discussed, or tested during months of employment, but demographic information and advanced education were utilized for grant submission purposes. In sum, the actual interview was farcical and steeped in tenure-inducing academic politics.
Interview Question – What do you believe you can add to our research team? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center in January 2010.
Interview Details – Getting through HR was easy. The manager of the unit was friendly and warm, but asked strange open-ended questions. The second interview consisted of a group interview with my would-be co-workers. They were ill prepared for this interview. I'd interview there again, but I'd be more ready to throw out questions of my own when the group dropped the ball.
Interview Question – What do you want in life? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center in April 2011.
Interview Details – I applied for the position through the company website. To prepare, I came up with a set of questions that I wanted to ask based on the job description. I was reached by telephone to schedule the first meeting. The first step was talking to two managers about my education and experience. This was a pre-screening interview which I passed. I then spoke to a third manager and the director as the second step of the interview process. I much preferred the first two managers I talked to; they were more welcoming and friendly while asking important questions. The director was quite brusque and that interview lasted only 10-15 minutes. I did not have a positive impression of the position after that interview. I did not meet with the other employees or visit the offices, which I later wished I would have done, because it most likely would have influenced my decision about the position.
The advice I would offer to other interview candidates is to come prepared with any questions to clarify the job posting and the tasks the position entails. I thought the one I had was vague and I wished I had asked more about the nitty-gritty.
Interview Question – What can you bring to this position? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a salary that was $2000 higher than the original offer, but due to the pay scale associated with the position title I was at the top of the pay range for the title. Later I was able to negotiate a higher title with increased pay, but I was stuck at the top of the pay range for the title for months. I would remind interview candidates that if you receive an offer you should get everything that's offered to you in writing prior to deciding whether to decline or accept the offer. I neglected to do that very basic action, and it was a tough lesson to learn.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Kansas Medical Center in February 2012.
Interview Details – I applied on-line and received a call the next day for a phone interview. Basic questions regarding my resume and background were asked. I passed and was invited in for a 1:1 interview the next week. It was mostly behavioral questions. The following Monday I received the offer. Very dry environment, great hospital over all. Other RA seem young and enthusiastic which is a plus. Salary package is very minimal to start.
