I applied online. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Interview

Not exactly sure if this counts, as I apparently didn't even make it past the phone call with the recruiter. But anyway, I received a phone call from an internal recruiter shortly after applying. She screened me and assured me that multiple departments would be interested. A day or so later, she sent me an email assuring me that a specific person would be contacting me soon to schedule an interview. After a week or so of waiting for that person to contact me, I contacted the recruiter to let them know. The recruiter answered days later saying that the director who was supposed to contact me was just out of office and assured me not to worry. Again, she assured me that multiple departments wanted to speak to me. After a week and still no contact from that department, I checked the job listing to see that it had been filled and the position was closed. Obviously, these positions are competitive and people are busy, but the experience wasn't great. I have volunteered for this hospital before, so this isn't the first time I've been entangled in an interdepartmental communication lapse. It's all honestly turned me off from this hospital completely.

Never made it to the interview round because of the timed coding challenge. The instructions said I can choose any programming language but that was true of only 2/3 of the questions. The 3rd was Java only.

I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Interview

The interview process was very tedious but rewarding. They ask many situation based questions, so it would be helpful to have that prepared. They want as much detail as possible. It is a little nerve wrecking but it is a great way to think outside of the box about your answers.

Interview Questions
  • Think of a time you had a difficult encounter with a patient. How did you handle it and were you satisfied with the outcome?
