    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Children's Hospital (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Phone screening with an administrator in the department, they were unable to provide feedback on what any specifics of the job entailed. Invited for in person interview first with the director then with other staff members. Found them all to be looking for different candidates, it seemed to be a disjointed interview where they were unsure what they wanted.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Got a phone call from an HR person who was fairly rude. She interrogated me on my job history and told me that people ruin their career by changing jobs a lot. Mentioned a 10 year commitment. Declined to tell me anything about the job or company. When I didn't have a reason why I wanted to work at BCH specifically, she said "we're going to pass" and hung up the phone.

    Worst interview I've had in 5 years.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boston Children's Hospital (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruited after he saw my resume in their system. It took less than a day to get the time and date of the interview.
    The interview was relaxed. The interviewer took plenty of time explaining the role and the department. She also "checked in" during our conversation to make sure that I thought this would be a good role for me.

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston Children's Hospital (Boston, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call about the role, the Children's recruiter left a vm to get in touch with her about the role. However, the phone # given was either fictitious or she didn't pick up calls on that line. After numerous attempts at reaching the recruiter thru that # failed I finally reached her on LinkedIn email. Her response was "I'm in meetings, will call you today". The call never came, nor any other email or communication about the role. A simple "no" would have been easier, but I guess that's why people hate recruiters of all shapes and sizes.
