    Research Lab Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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 They seem to use old outdated software systems.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

    • My interview questions were more geared toward my research studies and my CV. Therefore, the questions asked are irrelevant and only specific to my career.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    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.
