    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University.

    Interview

    I went through a round of interviews there and had an unpleasant experience with an hr person. I could tell she didn't see the value in interviewing me and told me, in fact, that some of the experience listed on my resume was irrelevant. Throughout the interview she never smiled and seemed confused/not open to anything I had to say. She even rated my responses on a numerical scale in front of me, in plain view.

    When I was finally declined, the response I received was copy and pasted in different fonts. It was a pretty disheartening experience.

    How IS the Hiring Process Set-up? Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    After over 500+ resumes & job applications but never a call back or interview I am 100% confused with how JHHS & JHU handle the recruitment process. I could totally understand if I were applying for positions I'm unqualified for but that is so not the case here. I don't get it, am frustrated and am turned off.

    Senior Program Officer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied in writing with CV and cover letter. Made a follow-up telephone call. After about 3 weeks, was asked for a telephone interview. This was not particularly friendly. One person was very aggressive. Kept alleging that I had made mistakes in my past career. But that made me comfortable to be just as aggressive in my replies.

    Diffusion Tensor Imaging Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Phone Screen occurred first testing behavioral fit, more than anything else. Next, Technical Screen tested skills but mostly focused on neuroanatomy and neuroscience knowledge rather than neuroimaging programming expertise. Live Interview (3 hours with DTIStudio software) focused almost exclusively on neuroimaging coding expertise, particularly with C++, Java, and Python, specifically DIPY package for diffusion tensor imaging for Python.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University in February 2016.

    Interview

    The process is very long. It includes 2 interviews: one with the immediate supervisor and manager and one with HR Rep. It was very frustrating due to poor communication. I keep giving them information they needed for references and they continued to call a lot trying to get my work references straight. Off never had any place have as much difficulty just checking a reference. But I assumed it was just an indication of their thoroughness. I was wrong.

    Negotiation

    I would ask how the training process would work because I haven't a clue right now. There isn't a good process in place and I feel left out. When I ask questions I feel wrong for doing so. If they aren't clear, don't take the job. I wish I hadn't.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.
