    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted about 2 weeks after sending in the initial application online; had the interview and everything was going well, only to hear back from them a month after the interview --after I had gone home for the summer. Still offered to fly back and work for the summer, but never heard from them again even though the phone call was asking about hours I could work.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Great process, lack of follow-up. Completed a phone interview and did a 1:1 interview and a group interview with three separate groups of people. Felt the interview went extremely well and then never heard back from the team about the plans for the position. While I felt it was a great fit, the team lacked professional follow-up.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Interviewing with the actual laboratory staff was easy and relaxing. The HR department asks the typical interview questions. The lab managers generally give a tour of the department and ask easy questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The HR department asked what I would do in the situation of a patient that was a tough stick, or nervous about a blood draw and how I would handle it.   Answer Question

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview and after I had an interview in person for about 30 minutes. The questions were the usual ones that every company asks. I was interviewed by more than 1 employee. They shared their experiences at BWH, what they do for their jobs, what the admin assistant will do, and I was able to ask each of them some questions.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had multiple interviews for 3 different positions. I have worked for partners previously, have a B.A., and an impressive work background. The process of interviewing with 3 different sections of the hospital took about a month. One position I'm glad I didn't hear back from, the doctor I would've been working for seemed like a pompous soulless human being, the second one I haven't heard from/don't care about, and the third I went as far as having my references fill out the online survey, however the coordinator has not responded to my emails regarding the next steps despite telling me to email her if I had any questions. My references took the time out of their lives to fill out the survey, but the coordinator can't take time out of her day to tell me if I'm still a candidate or not? It's nice to know how this hospital operates. Keep up the good work Brigham.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions weren't that hard. It's admin assisting, not rocket science. But apparently you need a Phd to sit at a desk all day.   Answer Question

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    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.
