    They said it's typically one interview, I went for two. You meet with the manager that's going to hire you. I don't really have anything else to add as every dept hires slightly different.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I met with my direct supervisor, as well as the administrative director. They were pretty nice/welcoming. I was able to meet the team I would also be working with. Finding the location was tricky, so I would recommend arriving early to scope the location out beforehand. They were extremely accommodating as well in regards to figuring out how to navigate the hospital.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very long and tedious with little promises. I had to keep following up and leaving messages but no one got back to me on the same day. I feel as if it took so long because I asked for a high salary and they wanted to see if they could find a candidate who wasn't asking for as much.
