    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Children's National Health System (Washington, DC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional as well as the supervisor that interviewed me. She was pleasant and the human resource department was helpful as well. This company has a great reputation for excellent service and I was very satisfied even being a interviewee.

    Web Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Children's National Health System.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had a phone interview with them. They then passed me on for a phone interview with the person who would be the supervisor of this position. We had what I thought was a friendly yet professional conversation, and this person told me that I would be hearing more from them. I sent a thank you note the next day. A long time has passed (i dont want to say exactly how much time, to be as anon as possible) and I have heard nothing. So unprofessional.

    Once you move past the recruiter/headhunter stage, I believe the interviewee at least deserves a polite "we have decided to move on to other people" stock letter from the HR department, at the very least. I am a little hesitant to bash the particular employee that I interviewed with though, as this person told me they were pretty short handed on help. So perhaps a general red flag about the institution as a whole should have gone up for me (and you reading this) at that point.

    Interview Questions

    • How I thought my experience would fit the role. Typical things like that, no real surprise questions.   Answer Question

    Clinical Research Coordinator II Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Children's National Health System (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process is still on-going and I believe it depends on the particular lab. I applied end of June 2016 and first heard back mid July 2016. We did a phone interview, Web-X, then a face-to-face interview at CNMC with two weeks in between each. I was told I would find out early September 2016. I didn't hear back then so I reached out. At that point I was told they were busy with projects, were conducting other interviews, and would let me know "soon." I randomly got a call end of September 2016 asking to come in for a 2nd face-to-face interview scheduled a little over two weeks out. I wasn't even told what it would be for until I asked. No mention of salary or benefits yet.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because I would have been taking a pay cut based on cost of living loving from Florida to DC. I negotiated based on experience and education for them to come up 12k, which I knew was not going to happen but I was thinking at least 5500. They came up 2999 and I declined the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Children's National Health System.

    Interview

    Very laid back and super easy. I interviewed directly with the unit manager and she was extremely nice. It was my first interview ever and it was a very nice experience. Asked very basic questions that didn't require much thought. Got to shadow after and everyone on the unit seemed very positive. I have not heard back yet about the position, I assume many people applied. However, I think the interview went very well.
