    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

    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

    Interview

    I received an email after 1 week of applying to the position, i had a skype interview with the director. It was pleasant and she was very polite. Due to my inability to stay in the position for more than 2 years it was deemed to be a poor fit on their end.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Negative 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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone call interview. We went over everything that was in my resume. Then we went on to discuss my future plans with my life. Then we went through my resume again. She told she was at the very beginning and that if I was chosen she would return my call for an interview. The line of questioning made the phone interview slightly difficult considering that I had to explain a resume in its entirety as if I did not provide one, and she missed and mixed up most of my experiences. Most of the call was spent trying to clarify my resume and the flow and my actual experience despite it being in a one page resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard from HR a couple of weeks later offering to set up a 1:1 phone interview. Did the phone interview, very typical questions. Told I would hear back within a week - week and a half, which I did. I was offered a chance to come in for a interview. It was from 12:00-3:30 and took place on two different campuses. The Eastern campus had me sit with HR and go over typical questions.. explain a time when this happened and then had me do a Excel, Word and proof reading test. These were not what I was expecting because you can only perform the task the way the test wants you to, so forget and short-cuts you know. After that I had 30 min to get to the other campus but of course construction blocked the road, this was very frustrating. One guy was sick so I met with 3 people in total, 2 other administrative coordinators who were very nice and the higher up I would be working for. They were all very nice but within a week I received an email that they would be perusing someone else.
