Research Technician II Interview

Research Technician II
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College in May 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring was a two-tiered process. I was first interviewed by the lab's Principal Investigator (PI), then by HR at Cornell. The PI's questions were related to previous lab experience and techniques, while HR asked the more standard interview questions. All in all, everyone was very communicative and supportive throughout the process, and I have no complaints.

Interview Question – Most difficult question was related to a scientific technique that I learned a few years back, asked by the lab's PI. Mostly to check critical thinking skills and scientific acumen.   Answer Question

Research Technician II

Interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College

Interview Details – Met with PI and the team. Everyone in the lab was nice. A week after my interview, I was sent to HR for a second interview. HR personnel asked questions irrelevant to research, and he was sarcastic and unfriendly.

Research Technician II Interview

Research Technician II

The process took a day - interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College in September 2009.

Interview Details – Seemed a pretty standard behavioral and individual interview. I interviewed with the hiring manager and future colleagues to determine the fit and my level of knowledge. The atmosphere in the group was stiff with no communication between people and between people and management. As a general rule for people who interview I suggest first to take a look around and notice as much as possible.
