    Difficult Interview

    Application

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I want to clarify that I applied for the graduate nurse residency program with MDA. After closing the application online, they called within three days of submitting to do a pre-screening phone interview. They seemed to call people in waves as other classmates of mine were not contacted to schedule an interview for five more days. At the end of that initial phone call with pre-screening questions, the lady told me that they would like to schedule an in-person interview for the following week. They did not offer all applicants this in-person interview - a friend of mine did not get offered one. It was a panel interview with three individuals in similar departments. It was relatively laid back and they wrote down many of my answers to questions. I had prepared answers to many interview questions that I had looked up on websites like allnurses(dot)com.

    IT Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted resume for consideration and was called back rather quickly by the human resource department to schedule an in person interview the following week. The following week, I met with the hiring manager and a few members of the team. Questions asked where the standard questions someone with a background in IT should expect. They seem to use the STAR format in interviewing candidates.

    Was told the hiring process was going to take about a month, before they would schedule to select the final candidates that would be meeting with upper management. From there they would be making a hiring decision. It's been about a month and I never heard back from HR.

    Normally I would had wrote a company off for lack of no response, however this is a major company in the Houston area with tons of staffing needs. I'll update if I ever hear back for those of you that are in the same situation.
