    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great colleagues, excellent benefits, active effort to make employees happy by upper management

    Cons

    middle management likes the status quo, garage parking is costly, work can be emotionally draining if you deal with patients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to the emotional toll the work can take on employees from seeing so many sick patients, develop a program to deal with this besides employee assistance, which is worthless.

    Senior Research Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    There were 2 interviews over the course of about 3 weeks. First I met with my (now) boss, and the team/people I would be supervising. I came in later to meet with 2 clinicians I would be working closely with. Everyone was very casual and nice. They were more concerned with my ability to maintain the cohesion/closeness of the group, which I think is a good thing. It's a very supportive environment. People work hard, but they also act like regular people and weren't stuck up. I was SO nervous and very stressed due to a cross-country move and a dying pet, so these were NOT my best interviews. I was hired for a lower position than I originally applied for, but was told that if it goes well, there may be potential for promotion.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle a situation in which you did not agree with your supervisor?
      Why aren't you getting a PhD?
      Do you have plans to move/leave the area in the next 1-2 years?
      What is your approach to supervising others?
      What makes you qualified for this position?
      Do you feel like you're a team player?
