    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Hope (Duarte, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for the position online. Received a response within a couple of weeks with interview a week after. Had a nice chat with the PI and he showed me around the lab. We talked about my qualifications and my experience. Overall, the interview was not so much about what I knew but my overall work process. Was offered the job but was forced to accept the position within 3 days despite asking for more time to consider other opportunities. HR cited budgetary reasons.

    Research Associate II Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at City of Hope (Duarte, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process I had with a lab at City of Hope was pretty straightforward - one phone interview with HR, followed by an on-site interview with the PI and a few other researchers in his department.

    Although the interviews went as expected, I was very disappointed in the communication process afterwards. The PI called me a week and a half after my on-site interview to tell me that he had spoken to all (all!) of my references, and that he really liked me as a candidate. Although he did not give me a verbal offer over the phone, he told me HR would get in touch with me to go over the benefits offered with the job. HR called me the next day, and after describing the benefits the representative said that they had not decided on a salary for the position yet, and that they would get back to me as soon as they figured that out. A week later, HR emailed me to let me know that another candidate was hired instead. I was surprised, and I felt like I had been led on. I don't think HR should have discussed the benefits with me nor told me they were working on a salary if they were not sure I was the candidate they would offer the job to. I also thought it was strange and a little unprofessional of the PI to follow up with me and make it seem as though he wanted to offer me the job. I think the whole process should've been handled differently by both the PI and HR; I would've rather they refrained from contacting me until the very end when they told me I did not receive the job.

    Interview

    There were tests I took to ensure I was able to handle the position then there was a phone interview with an executive member and finally a 1:1 interview. You have to know what you are doing because from the very start as a professional you jump right in. I'm fortunate to learn from the top leaders of the organization. They are really in the action of it all. You will never find any one of their execs behind a desk. They are on campus, in meetings and improving the hospital every day. I would be careful about the Directors some are real (will make sure you feel secured and happy to work for them by treating you and the others equally) and at least 1 director I encountered was fake (made others work harder and gave them promotions whenever they went the extra mile to do his dirty work)
