    Senior Bio Statistician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    I received an offer from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. It didn't take me long to think about it and reject it. At best, it can be described as disrespectful.

    I conducted the interview at their location in Baltimore, MD. I was supposed to give a presentation but they weren't prepared at all. Four important people didn't show up for the interview. They are extremely disorganized. Everything seems hectic. The people who interviewed me warned from politics inside center and this turns out to be true.

    Few weeks later they offered me the job. The number was pretty insulting (less than 74 and more than 65) for someone who has a PhD with many years of experience. Their reasoning was first they don't have the money. Just imagine that JHU does not have enough resources for a reasonable salary. Second, they said the job description requires Master's and thus I should have only applied for PhD positions. They just wanted to take my PhD out of the equation although every one of their scientists team I spoke with stressed out the importance of my Education. When I mentioned that they said well we don't have the money.

    I simply rejected the offer. I don't want to work at place that depends on exploiting others. Things are clear for me. If I am over qualified for the position then you should say so from the beginning and reject my candidacy. But saying that I have the necessary qualification to succeed in this job but we will not consider your education means exploitation.

    Also, I felt I owe this to Statistics community in JHU. If I accept that poor offer, I would have made it harder to Master's holders to negotiate their salary.

    Another tactic you should be aware of, they will always encourage you to accept the job that does have a weak salary and does not respect your education by saying that we will promote you someday to a very exciting position after you get some experience. Be aware of this trap and these empty promises. It is going to take them years before even considering any type of promotion.

    I know it is easy to go blind and get too excited when you see a potential to work for a big school. Just be careful and realistic.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Nothing to report in this case. The interview process varies from person to person. I took the personal training course, the exam, shadowed other trainers, had a mock training, and interviewed.

    Budget Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I am right now in the middle of applying/interviewing for dozens of companies and so am pretty used to the standard phone screening process. I was pleasantly surprised to be called in for a one-on-one interview with the guy who will/would be my direct supervisor. (As opposed to having a screening call, first.) After emails back and forth regarding day/time, directions, details, etc., we were on a first-name basis and exchange felt comfortable. Gave me a positive impression of how communication would be, were I to become part of the team (Disclosure: I have worked for Johns Hopkins University in the past - completely different part of the organization, different location, etc - and so I don't know if this fact maybe fast-tracked me to a one-on-one interview)

    Senior Medical Office Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process was pretty standard. Telephone interview then in person interview. It was a position working for surgeons and it was probably one of the worst interview I went on in awhile. Both surgeons weren't friendly at all. The expectations for the position and what they are paying plus having to work with unpleasant people was not worth it.

    Interview Questions

    • The doctor had me write how I would type a letter up and I had to get on the computer and
      Make graphs for him as well

    Graduate Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in September 2016.

    Interview

    phone interview, followed by in person interview by director of department, hr, and some staff. required to cover travel expenses on your own

    The process was terrible. the managers of the department and hr never spoke and were never on the same page. it felt like completely different conversations each time.
    the posted salary range was not actually at all what they would offer. their offer was based solely on other recent hires, not your background, or potential job. hr was not flexible at all, rude, and condescending. the majors within the department were very good and would have been great to work for. sadly hr completely messed up the experience

    Interview Questions

    • basic: tell me about yourself, experience in admissions, where do you see yourself in 5-10 yrs   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was swift! I was contacted within two weeks of applying for the position for a phone interview.
