    Helpdesk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Found the job through staffing agency. Great workplace, very kind staff and managers. An overall pleasant experience even though I didn't get the job. They kind of overdid it with an almost 2 hour interview, made me repeat the same things to almost all of the staff, since they interviewed me seperately, but I guess it's just how they work.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) in June 2009.

    Interview

    They required two writing samples, one phone interview in French, followed by an in person interview in English in front of a panel. They didn't seem to know what it was they were looking for, and were stalling on hiring someone because funding for the project hadn't yet come through.

    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.

    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.

    Overall the process was entirely too long and drawn out; taking three months total. It was basically a month in between each interview.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.
