    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    First of all, I showed up for the interview at least fifteen minutes ahead of time, having not been told anywhere specific to go. There is no reception are for visitors of the Connors Center, and when I gave the name of the woman I was expected to meet with, nobody could tell me anything. I spent something like half an hour being given the runaround and directed by security as I kept trying to get in contact with my interviewer. Then I had to wait something like another fifteen minutes for the interviewer to actually show up at the place I was told (by security) to meet her. Totally unprepared and unprofessional. I get hospitals are busy, but dear god.

    The interview with her was pleasant enough, but the second one with the head of the center was nothing but judge-y. She picked apart every little thing I said and it honestly made me feel so terribly small.

    Oh, and I still haven't gotten any follow up response from them since this interview took place in AUGUST.

    Research Lab Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Confusing. Large employee funneling. Too much dependence on technology to process everyone. Must be a Partners Healthcare Management thing. They seem to use old outdated software systems. PeopleSoft is such an ancient HR management system that hasn't been updated since the 90s.

    Interview Questions
