    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Drexel University in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for an interview within a week. I had my interview over the phone with the director of clinical research services, the director of research from the hospital site the position was assigned to, and another research coordinator. They asked the standard research questions about my skills, type of studies I had previously worked on, and different trainings I had. They said they would get back to me within a week about their hiring decision but I never heard back from the director at Drexel. I emailed her twice and called 3 times and she never returned any of my emails or calls. I finally had to call the director at the hospital to finally hear that they had already made a hiring decision. She seemed surprised that the director from Drexel never got back to me.

    Interview

    Interview process consists of 3 stages: 1 phone, 2 face-to-face. Phone screening was quite easy and a lady was very friendly and easy-going. I was notified the following week that I was selected to proceed with one-on-one interview with the Assistant Director for Finance and Administration. The final interview was with the head of the department I was being interviewed for. Hiring process did not take too long. I evaluate my overall experience through hiring and interview process quite highly.
