    Research Data Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was in two parts: first I had to meet with human resources recruiter, then I got onto a shuttle and went to a completely different building to meet with my department for the interview. Frankly, it was a little bit overwhelming. The recruiter had a copy of my resume that was not updated, even though I was 100% certain that I had uploaded the correct resume. Anyway, I asked for a salary that was pretty reasonable for the position, and she kept insisting that it was way too much. The recruiter put a bunch of red lines to my resume, And all in all, she was pretty intimidating. Then I went off to the department with which I was interviewing. In general, they were pretty friendly, although they kept me waiting for a long time. The interview felt more like a conversation, but as there were many candidates, the hiring manager and the primary investigator kept it pretty brief

    Senior Research Data Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    This will vary widely based on your prospective boss, but for me:

    1) Interviewed initially with one PI and guy whose job I was taking over
    2) Interviewed with two more co-PIs and lab manager

    Interviews were relaxed and conversational; no "What's your greatest weakness?" or "How many golf balls would fit in this room?" nonsense. The idea seemed to be making sure I was easy to get along with after already having vetted my resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The initial process involved a phone interview followed by an in-person interview with three hiring personnel. The interview itself was relatively formal but only lasted about 15-20 minutes. The panel wanted specific incidents for each of your questions, so I'd recommend to have some pre-prepared scenarios on your mind.

    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.
