    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic.

    Interview

    The hiring process seems to be a little different depending on the needs of the lab. Over all it is a fairly standard interview process in which they ask behavioral interview questions, followed up with talking about the science of the lab.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in July 2014.

    Interview

    About one week after applying online for the position I received an email to set up a phone interview. I interviewed on the phone later that week with the lab supervisor and got the job offer the very next day. I was pretty surprised that there was no follow-up interview in person, but at the same time I was extremely happy the whole process went so fast.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard questions for a lab position, former experience, how I keep my days organized with multiple projects, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was primarily focused on personality questions, very little on actual lab experience. They more looked for someone trainable who fit in well with the lab. Definitely go over personality based questions, and don't be alarmed by their group interview process. There are normally 5-6 people interviewing you ranging from other research techs to PhDs and MDs.
