    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A phone interview was scheduled over email. The interview took about an hour, and I had the pleasure of talking with the physics folks, both supervisors and potential coworkers. I really appreciated how honest they were, and they really had a genuine interest in getting to know me as a person.

    They then reached out to me for a Skype interview. I accepted a different offer, so I did not accept the interview but I would highly recommend MD Anderson based on my experience. Very pleasant, helpful, and professional.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    It was a panel interview of various department managers. First observation was how pleasant the environment of the interview compared to my previous interview with another company. The conference room was beautiful, as is the rest of the building, and provided a great deal if natural lighting in the room. The interviewers were very pleasant and approachable and even showed humor to break the ice a little bit. It was an excellent experience. Probably the best panel interview I've been through, so far.
