    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in September 2017.

    Interview

    1 hour video interview and a 2.5 hour in person interview (1 hr one-on-one, 1 hr panel, .5 hr with human resources)

    After the interview, I was told that I would hear back within the week. After two weeks of no word, I reached out to the hiring manager. I received a response 5 weeks later stating that they filled the position. Very dissatisfied with the lack of follow-up/communication, especially after so many hours were invested in the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview process was standard, behavioral based questions. There were three interviews total. First a phone interview with another Senior Financial Analyst, than an onsite interview with the entire team of Senior Financial Analysts as well as the Director/Manager of the team. There was a third interview as well with the Director's boss, and the team and Manager had a few additional questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Columbia, MD) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by phone from the executive director, who indicated did a screen and then indicated she wanted me to meet the team. When I went to the panel interview, which consisted of 5 people, I learned that the job I applied for no longer had funding. However, the director indicated some other positions that were available. 3 weeks went by, and no word. I finally reached the exec director, who indicated that they had lost a significant amount of funding and no positions were now available. I suspect that this was not a total surprise, and would like to have any applicants to this organization be aware of this practice so they don't waste their time.

    Budget Analyst Interview

    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)

    Interview Questions

    • Go over your roles, responsibilities, duties, etc at your previous positions/companies   Answer Question

    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   Answer Question
