    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email about a good time to do a phone screen. During the screen I was asked basic questions about my experience, what I'm hoping to end up doing, and just general information about this particular lab. After the phone screen, I ended up interviewing with 4 people in the lab. It was very laid back and low pressure. A couple of weeks later I received an email about discussing logistics and received an offer that was too low for me to accept ($16/hour), unfortunately. It's hard to justify making a starting teacher's salary after earning a Master's degree in science. The overall interview itself was very casual and felt a lot more like a conversation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had a short phone interview and was asked to come into the office. The first interviewer I spoke with was very friendly and asked me a few basic interview questions, and gave me a detailed job description. Then I spoke to the associate program director and she immediately asked me to describe everything that the previous interviewer told me about the job. I did not get the position—my tip would be to take short notes during the interview, which I did not. Both interviewers wanted to know my weaknesses, and this question seemed very important to them.

    Interview

    Applied online after emailing the PI. Came in to meet him + the other researchers in their office at MGH. Was very helpful that I had read the entirety of their publications ahead of time. Would recommend doing so to anyone who is interested in a research role. The two most important qualities they were looking for were being 1) personable and 2) detail-oriented.
