I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at University Hospitals of Cleveland.Interview Details
I was contacted via phone by a recruiter in the HR department to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 to 45 minutes and was basic questions about my background and experience as well as personality questions. At the end of the phone interview the recruiter set up an in person interview with the head of the department before ending the phone conversation.
For my in person interview I met with the other employees working in the lab while waiting to meet with the doctor. During this time I was able to ask them a few questions and they also looked over my resume. I then sat down with the head doctor of the IVF lab and he asked me the same basic interview questions that I had for the phone interview. I was there for a total of about 45 minutes.
About a week later I was contacted by the HR recruiter again to set up a second interview as well as start a background check and have my references contacted. For the second interview I met with the head doctor again and he asked me basically the same questions he asked the first time. I also met with one of the department managers and he asked about availability and the commute time to and from the hospital for me. I was then given a tour of the lab by a few of the current andrologists and embryologists. After the tour I met with each of the employees individually and I was able to ask them some questions and they also asked me some questions. This part of the interview was a bit awkward because it was obvious none of the employees knew exactly what to say or ask of me. It seemed like they were unaware that they would have to sit down one on one with me. This whole interview process took a total of about an hour and a half. I was told I would hear back from them either way within a week.
During the next week all three of my references were contacted. Throughout the entire interview process I was able to go online to the careers website and check the current status of this process. At this time the status said background check in progress. I still hadn't heard anything a week later so I called the HR recruiter and left a message with her asking about the status of the position. After several days I still had heard nothing so I called her once again and left another message asking her to get back to me. I never ended up hearing anything back from the company at all. The status on the website continued to say background check in progress until 2 months later when it finally was updated to not selected for position. I found it extremely frustrating and unprofessional to have never heard anything back even though I contacted them twice to ask about it and I was told I would hear either way.Interview Questions
