    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine (Bethesda, MD) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Know about the specialty what they offer, pay, and read about their mission and values because all this is critique during the interview. Not sure about an exam or anything of such but be on alert because other places ask for these things and you should know them. So you meet with human resources and then you meet with the nursing recruiter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

    Interview

    I was first contacted through email for a phone interview. The PI and two other researchers involved in the study joined me for a conference call and for about 30 minutes, they described the study to me and explained what my job would be. I was asked if I was still interested and what I would like to get out of the job. We then scheduled an in person interview with the PI and one of the researchers in the conference call. During the interview, they went into more detail about what the job entailed, hours, how long the current phase of the study would be, their day to day expectations, etc. They asked about some of my past experiences and how those experiences could help me with this job.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from HR within a few days. I was given an interview time a few days later. I showed up at the appointed time and stood in the lobby with a few construction workers for about 10 minutes- no employee to be found. Finally someone rescued me and brought me to where my interview was.

    That really should have been my first clue to turn and run, but I didn't. Next the HR rep walked me through the dept and spoke to each of the 4 panel members that were going to be interviewing me. One appeared as though he had no clue while the others didn't seem to want to be bothered- clue #2. They stuck me in a conference room for 20 min, by myself which turned out to be clue #3. The interview went fine until I had exhausted all of their questions.

    I could tell one of the panelists just had an issue with me, which is fine, however, he seemed hell bent on making me look like an idiot with a "gotcha question" so he could push his case that I was not a good fit for the job. He asked some off the wall question, that had no relevance to the job. After another panelist balked at him asking the question, he admitted that they don't ask that particular question of applicants any longer because "no one could answer it."

    The interview lasted about an hour and I was told I would hear from them the following week. The interview was on a Friday. I hand delivered thank you notes on Monday, and have yet to hear a word from them. That was months ago. I knew from the time I was first standing in the front lobby, alone, that this was not a place that I wanted to work. The interview confirmed that. I followed through on my commitment to the interview and followed up with thank you notes. They in no way showed me the same respect.
