    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    MSKCC requires you to provide 5 references - including your current manager - and then sends them a long online survey to rate your skills and abilities. They don't think this is excessive and don't care that this could get you fired from your existing job. Their whole recruiting process is just so demeaning and dismissive. Everything from the slow response times to the non-negotiable low ball offers proves this. I got so sick of the abuse that I withdrew.

    MSKCC regularly sends me solicitations for donations. They even run a fundraiser at my gym. My experience with MSKCC has been so negative - I would dissuade anyone from donating to them, applying for work with them, or seeking care there. How you treat job applicants reflects how you treat employees. How you treat employees reflects how you treat customers. And MSKCC suffers from a terminal case of hubris.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (Basking Ridge, NJ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was via webcam, then another meeting in person on location (two interviews), and later another interview with the physician I'd be working with. Interview questions were behavioral based and difficult to quickly answer. Physician asked me "When can you start?" After leaving that interview I thought I had pretty much had the job, but came to find out another candidate was hired the next day.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

    Interview

    They're really interested in your future plans, especially if you intend on going to graduate school cause the position usually requires a 1-2 year commitment. Overall, average process. It's easier if you have previous research experience.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very decieving and unprofessional. I received a phone screen at first which seemed harmless enough. One week later I receive an email requesting an in person meeting with very inflexible dates and times. To meet this requirement I had to use a vacation day from my current position. I receive a mass email which was sent to all interviewers on the day before my email reminding me that I would be meeting with a Director and the HR Generalist. Upon arrival there are 4 additional interviewers. Furthermore, the team informs me that the job I applied for would be for off hour shifts. Very unprofessional to not list that little bit of knowledge in the description for the posting. After finishing the interview I am informed they still have weeks of interviews left, which means there was no rush in the first place for me I make this interview. I still have not heard anything back and this has been a month. I am very upset with the whole process and would never recommend anyone who is marketable to apply through this hospital.
