    Very straight forward interview -- met with the nurse manager on the unit. They look to hire nursing students or long-term PCAs. We met for 20-30 minutes and discussed my experiences with patient care.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital in June 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process takes a little while, so be patient. I had an employee refer me for this position. There is an initial phone interview with human resources. Then an interview with the practice manager, then asked back to meet with the department head. The interview was quite typical. I went through my resume and talked about future goals.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, and did a phone interview within a week. HR person was very kind, and asked me questions regarding my background, but mostly asked me why I wanted the position. What my best traits were and what qualities/traits/skills I learned in my previous position. They offered me the position a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all easy. Be prepared to provide scenarios during in-person interview, but overall it was a very great experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was beyond low compared to what similar positions in other hospitals in the city were offering. I did negotiate and was bumped up to .20 more an hour. My advice is always ask if salary is negotiable, but make sure you research before negotiating. As prestigious this hospital is, the pay-scale for all positions and departments is laughable, and inexcusable.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Interview

    Met with Supervisor and the team. Questions asked where off resume. Very low pressure- was more about finding the right fit for the team than qualifications. Pretty standard and casual.

    Assistant Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I applied to a position directly from the MGH hospital website. Within a week I got an email from the scientist that would be my potential boss, just clarifying a few things on my resume. We emailed back and forth a couple time and then she set up a phone interview with me. The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes and she asked questions involving my background and education, but spent the majority of the interview on what goals I had for the future. I was less prepared to answer these questions-which were a lot about research goals, continuing my education, and specific areas of interest. My take on it was that they wanted to give someone the opportunity that had a very specific goal for future research.
