    Systems Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    An initial telephone interview. I was told about the position I was interviewing for and the place that I would work for if hired. I was asked why I left my previous employer. I was asked about my UNIX experience, as well as other server experience, such as Windows and VMWare. My EDI experience, I was told, was helpful to the interviewer, as well as the fact that I now like creating documentation, which I, early in my career, did not like doing.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Long, very, very long, I am an internal employee, I had to first meet with HR and take a series of test based on Microsoft outlook. Then I met with department staff (people at the same level as the position). I was called in to interview again with a division administrator. Was called to interview again for the fourth time by a faculty member. I essentially turned down the fourth interview because I was offered another position within my department. In my opinion the amount of interviews for a position of this status is a bit ridiculous and very much overkill.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions were asked such as how do you handle conflict, what are you long term goals, why are you seeking a new position, etc.   1 Answer

    Administrative Coordinator 1- Gastroenterology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    The interview was very basic. Behavior and past experience. It is an entry level position, bachelors needed and a year or 2 of experience. I was told that I would hear back in the beginning of the following week. I didn't hear back so I sent an email to the HR person who interview me. My email was ignored. So 2 weeks later I sent another email, HR rep finally responded and was very rude. Which seems to be the trend that I am seeing on glassdoor with the MCW. Asked for feedback with the rejection and was told that they couldn't provide feedback. Very weird and unwanted experience.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Not a short process at all so be warned! From time of my application to time of offer was about 2 months. I had to go through Microsoft Office skills testing, 2 phone interviews/screens and a 2.5 hour in-person interview where I meet with 7 people in small groups of 1-2 at a time. Everyone I meet with was super nice and the interviews flowed well. They made me feel comfortable and I left thinking I had a good chance of getting an offer. Be prepared, friendly and confident.

    Because the hiring process at MCW is decentralized, it's encouraged to apply to any position you are interested in and qualified for. Some departments do their own hiring while other go through the Human Resources Department.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied in late November and received a call from HR three weeks later to schedule an in-person interview. Went to HR offices one week later to take excel and data entry tests and then met with a recruiter who was nice and casual, and made me feel very comfortable. She discussed the position that I was interviewing for in great detail. I thought that I did well, but I guess not b/c I received an email one week later that MCW chose to pursue other, more qualified, candidates.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I came in for an interview for the Human and Molecular Genetics Center Research Technologist II position and was blown away by how comfortable everyone made me feel and by the ease of the questions. I interviewed with four representatives from laboratories that were very nice and it was apparent that they were happy with their current positions and/or projects.

    Physician Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted fairly quickly after applying and an Administrative Assistant set me up for a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. The phone interview went well and I was contacted the following week to meet with the Hiring Manager in person along with her Supervisor. They asked good questions and treated me nicely during their interviews. Both indicated that I would hear back toward the end of the following week. When I didn't hear from anyone, I contacted the Hiring Manager by email and simply asked her if they had reached a decision on who they wanted to move on to a final panel interview. She never responded. I do understand that they may not have felt that I was a good match for their position. My only surprise was that they didn't provide the courtesy of at least sending me a "canned thanks but no thanks letter." Goodness knows that I've sent many of those myself. So, my only suggestion is that they do better follow up just as a matter of professional courtesy.
