    Grants Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for a phone interview almost a month later. The phone interview was with the Development Director for the department I would be working under. The interview was pretty standard but I was suprised how easy going he was and it was more like a conversation. Before we hung up we were already scheduling a second interview, in person. Two weeks later I flew up to Boston and met with the man I spoke to before (my boss) for about 20 minutes- didn't ask much interview questions cause he had previously. Then I went and met with the Senior Grants Administrator whom I would be working with and saw what my office would be and what not. Meeting with her was more so for her to see if she could work with me side by side each day so pretty relaxed. Then I the last person I met with was the lead Doctor of Surgery for the Center of Transplantation Sciences and was pretty brief. He asked about my experience and really wanted me to thoroughly explain it. Then the following day I was contacted by someone from HR to submit my references 2 days later they were contacted and the following week I received a job offer.

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

    Interview

    It wasn't a very productive interview and the interviewer didn't seem that interested in getting to know me. She asked me questions but didn't ask me to elaborate further on those answers.

    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through indeed, and found a doctor's email online to send in my resume that way as well. My resume was circulated through the department, and I was invited for a phone screen for a couple of different projects. I then had Skype interviews with the doctor and 2 CRCs, and then was invited for an in-person interview. I interviewed with 4 different people from the team. It was very casual, a lot of questions about my previous experiences and transferable skills, and just seeing if I was a good fit for the team. It was a great experience, my only concern was the pay - which was not up for negotiation at all, and I when I tried to ask for more, it sounded like HR was trying to devalue me as an employee and act like they weren't almost 10k less than the average in the area. For someone with student loans and paying rent anywhere near Boston, it's going to be difficult to swing, but I took it because I really enjoyed the team and the job description.

    MGH Diabetes research center. Interview took about 30 minutes and I met with 4 different people at different times. The asked questions about my clinical research experience and experience working with patients. I met with the RA I was going to replace, 2 RNA's and the program manager. The interviewers seemed to be in a hurry to rush through the questions since they were interviewing other candidates concurrently. But overall they were cordial and friendly.
