Research Technician II Interview

Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. 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 Questions
  • 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

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College.

    Interview Details

    The interviewee must exude confidence during the interview and demonstrate a strong knowledge of life sciences. Many Principal investigators (PI) seek graduates that are either pre-med or preparing for a physicians assistant program.

    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.

    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.
