    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Laid back process, but probably varies by department or PI. The interview was informal and more about determining whether I was a good fit for the lab. Was asked about experiences listed on resume, and was told about the projects going on in the lab.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was very lengthy. They keep you posted on development if asked. They were so cooperative and kind during the interview process. They understand and respect the knowledge and time of candidate and try to address their questions and queries at best.

    Interview

    Usually starts with phone interview, then I came in for two in-person interviews. It was nothing out of the ordinary. Prepare as you would for a standard interview -- review projects, staff publications, schools attended, research the position and so on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in April 2019.

    Interview

    First a pre-screening phone call with HR. At least three weeks later was contacted for an in-person. Given only 24 hours notice to come in for a 2.5 hour interview with about five different people. Called in again about 1-2 weeks later for a final round interview, which consisted of meeting with another 5-6 people for about 3 hours. No follow up from anyone after the final round; they just ghosted me. Most institutions follow up with final round candidates at the very minimum.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (New York, NY) in May 2019.

    Interview

    My first interview went well and I was given the impression that I may be getting a job offer (once the my references are verified) but this was very misleading and the second encounter turned out to be yet another interview...it also seemed like I was being considered for multiple open positions in the same lab. Overall, I found that the employers were not communicating clearly/honestly with me. The mixed messages were confusing and frustrating.

    Interview Questions

    • Overall some tricky questions, but nothing unusual. ex— you’ve never worked with lab animals, can you handle this or do you prefer working with human samples? This was tricky since there were two open positions, one with mice one with human biological samples.   Answer Question
    • How do you handle a difficult situation I’m the lab?   Answer Question
