    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)

    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

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University.

    Interview

    I went through an initial interview where they asked basic questions pertaining to my fit for the position, which went well. However, when they decided to move me forward they were not clear with expectations for second interview round with the PI, in which case the questions were redundant, being nearly the same as those asked in the initial interview. The interviewer seemed rather disinterested and not eager to ask questions from the start.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was swift! I was contacted within two weeks of applying for the position for a phone interview. The phone interview was in a group setting and was more of a conversation than your typical hiring manager interview questions. The explained the position and what was expected from me. I told them about myself and what I was looking to offer and gain from the position. It was followed up with an in-person interview that was more of the same plus a code review.
