    Clinical Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boston University School of Medicine (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two supervisors in person. They asked very casual questions about experience, work ethic, attitude, ways of handling different situations. Open to listening and wanted me to do most of the talking. Made the environment very comfortable and just wanted to get a little bit more information that what my resume told them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Boston University School of Medicine (Boston, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After the initial applying online, it took them about 2 month to call you in for the interview. After the first interview (only with a hand full of candidates), it took them a whole month before calling you back for a round two. They also asked you to provide references the day after the first interview but did not call any of them at all. Round two was approximately 3-4 weeks after round one, took about 3 hours, and consist of meeting with doctors that haven't seen your resume before and didn't know what position you're interviewing for. After round two they didn't make their final decision for another 3 weeks, at which point they didn't even send you any email about the whether the position was filled or not, or any information of that matter.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    I sent in a cover letter and resume, applying for a research position, and promptly received a response to come in for an interview. The interview itself was straight forward. She asked why I wanted to work in medicine and what I expected to get out of working under her. Eventually she told me to come in for a trial run to see if I would stick around. I did, and ended up getting an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • She immediately looked over my resume and saw my gpa and talked about. That threw me off a little because I had no excuse, I did not do as well as I would have liked.   Answer Question
