    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

    Interview

    There was a Phone Interview with the current Research Assistant and then an in-person interview with Principle Investigator. The Research Assistant asked more about general skills (balancing priorities, what I'm looking for in a research position) and PI asked me more about my experience and why I'm interested in this specific position. Was very casual, but could definitely tell of course that they were evaluating.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a situation in which you had to balance competing priorities?   1 Answer

    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Very formal and organized interview process. I gave a presentation first and then got a chance to talk with everyone in the lab for about 20 mins. Finally, someone in the lab showed me the lab general situations. I think the main part of the interview is talking with the PI and demonstrate your research.

    Interview Questions

    • What's your plan for future? How long can you stay? How can you deal with difficulties in the life and research? What kind of research skills do you have? How about your family?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

    Interview

    I applied to a few internships through Brigham, then was called and selected to interview for one. I was then contacted for a phone interview with the potential manager, once I made it through that round I was supposed to have a skype interview with the manager and her manager. However, they couldn't get the skype to work so we just had another phone interview and was told I'd be contacted in a week if I got the position.

    After the initial phone screening, I met with the practice manager and physician seperatly. Both gave a warm and welcoming feeling. The usual HR questions were asked and felt more like a friendly conversation than an interview.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, got an e-mail to set up a face to face interview, and met with the supervisor for the role(s) that I applied. This was the second and last time I applied to Brigham, I thought the first time around was just me slipping through the cracks... however, when you sit down for an interview, do a decent job in the interview, send a thank you email, and weeks later send a follow up to see if the position is filled or not and get no response... I find to be incredibly disrespectful and lazy. For this to not happen once but twice means that it may be some sort of protocol to ignore people after you brought them in for an interview and told them you'd be getting in touch with them either way. It's one thing to not respond in the first place but to set up a lengthy interview and just never respond is baffling.

    It was a blessing in disguise because I ended up finding a great job that respected my skills and my time.
