    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia University Medical Center in January 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was unclear and lacked a sense of certainty. I had no idea when I should expect contact and how the process was progressing. At several points I got mixed signals from staff and employers. Generally the questions themselves were fair and relevant, but the process is the biggest complaint. While I went through 3 interviews and 4 different points of contact, I was ghosted in the end.

    Phone Interview first and a half-day interview on-site. The phone screen was just three basic behavior questions about the resume, why applying for the position. Recent related project. But I did not pass the phone screen, I guess my skills did not match the positions.
