    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at City of Hope in January 2018.

    Interview

    One over the phone interview and one in person with the hiring manager. Manager was new, smart but lacked enough people management skills in my opinion. Department suffers from general organizational disarray. I was told manager had really liked my background for this Sr level position which was “ permanent “ and I would expect a call for the next steps. Never heard back, my recruiter said they apparently hired a Jr candidate for a five week contract to see how it would work out.
    Very unorganized and lacks organizational planning immensely!

    I will stay away from this place due to more than one negative experience total waste of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • Very specific question about my past experience as an analyst, manager was very smart and was trying to get into your head by asking very specific and detailed questions   Answer Question

    Scientific Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Hope (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I spent one hour talking to the manager of the scientific writers for a PhD level position at City of Hope. After that, I spend an entire day on campus with around 6-7 individual thirty minute interviews. It was all relatively standard and went fine as far as I could tell. After following up, I waited to hear back from them. After taking a day off work and an hour of my time with this company, I was not even granted a response telling me I had not gotten the job. I followed up with the manager and she did not even respond. Given that a few of the people I interviewed with seemed to imply a high degree of beauraracy in the organization, I most likely would not have accepted any offer. However, the fact that they did not even respond after I gave them much of my time signifies to me a high amount of unprofessionalism. I would not recommend anybody give this organization their time.

    Interview Questions

    • Depended on who the interview was with but mostly surrounded on the way in which I write grant proposals. Most everything related to the job.   Answer Question

    Research Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at City of Hope (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application and about a week later I was contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview went pretty well and I was asked for an in person interview on site. The interview consisted of 1 panel interview with current research associates and 1 with the physician I would be working with. Both were pleasant and friendly. This is where things got frustrating though. The interviewer ended the interview by telling me I would know within the next week of his decision. One week goes by, nothing. I emailed him to check in and reaffirm my interest, still nothing. 3.5 weeks later and I got a generic email informing me I did not get the job. The rejection stung, but the complete lack of communication was really frustrating.

    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.
