    Great Benefits, Good Job stability, and a friendly environment to work in.


    Low salary wages, and that's about all I will comment on.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    I found the job on Cedars-Sinai's website jobs listings. I contacted the PI, who arranged a brief phone interview the next day. The phone interview ended with an invitation to interview in person several days later. The interview went well, however the PI explained that I was the first person he'd interviewed, so he'd need time to review others before getting back to me. I contacted him a week later and he offered me the job, pending a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Questions were mostly about past experiences and what skills I was comfortable with. Interviewer stated that I was not expected to have all skills, and that appropriate training would be provided.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    My experience interviewing with the PI was very pleasant, however what followed was not. The background check took around two weeks. During this time, I knew that I wanted this job, but I couldn't allow myself to commit to it because I hadn't been told the salary. When I was finally contacted by an HR rep, she was extremely stern. She offered a salary at the very basement of the range listed on GlassDoor. When I made a moderate counter-offer she threatened to call the next applicant on her list. It was Thursday afternoon, so I asked if I could get back to her on Monday morning. She reluctantly agreed, insisting I call no later than 10 AM. She called back 15 minutes later and told me that she was revising the deadline to the next day at 10 AM. If she didn't hear from me in 18 hours, she would move on to the next applicant.

    I accepted the position. The start date was scheduled for two months from this acceptance.

    Having worked for CS for several months now, I'm very relieved that the hiring experience has not been reflective of my day-to-day working experience. Everyone other than that HR rep has been very, very, nice.
