    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University.

    Interview

    I applied via the JHU website directly. The manager sent me an email about my interest in the position and the position was described in greater detail over the phone; the manager told me that my resume would be passed on to other managers to determine if I would get an interview. I eventually received a call to schedule an interview: I was given a tour of the lab first and was interviewed by a panel of 6-7 people. Some were nice and friendly, others were a little more assertive.

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in September 2007.

    Interview

    After placing application on line, received a phone call requesting a personal interview with the person in charge of the department. During the interview, questions such as, how long was I in this line of work; why was I leaving my current job. The person gave an overview of what was expected from the successful candidate. Overall, very relaxed, even called me afterwards to explain why they would not hire me. Great feedback.

    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The initial recruitment for this position came as an e-mail from the current clinical research coordinator to my academic program. I forwarded my resume and was asked to travel to Baltimore for an in-person interview with the current coordinator and the research supervisor. The interview was relatively brief, both interviewers stated that they hadn't gotten much sleep the night before, and concluded with a tour of the department. I followed up several times via e-mail and phone and was told that a decision was still being made. Two months following my interview and having heard nothing, I made another inquiry only to be told that someone else had been hired. The supervisor mentioned that several other research coordinator positions were available and encouraged me to apply for them. I traveled to Baltimore again and met with the supervisor and the principal investigator. I discussed the available positions with the Principal Investigator for 45 minutes and was told that a decision would be made by the end of the week. After hearing nothing at the end of the week, I inquired as to the decision timetable and was told that I would have a decision by that Friday. Again, I heard nothing and waited another week before asking again. I was made to feel that I was bothering them for trying to get an answer after being given a decision timetable and was told that I would hear something soon, that was eight weeks ago. Overall, it was a negative experience with extremely poor communication. I do not expect to be treated like a nuisance when I am following up after being given a decision timeline.

    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very awkward, the interviewer was late to the interview and just read off questions, didn't engage at all. It felt like she didn't care about the interview or the passion I had for previous work endeavors. I felt like I just wasted my time going to this interview.
