    Physician Office Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Basking Ridge, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very long. I was worried towards the end. I almost gave up, but when you realize how far you've come it motivates you to keep going. I did a total of 4 interviews. The last one is the easiest because the doctor only wants to get to know you. Once you pass the interviews with the recruiter, 2 admin coordinators, and submit your 5 references, the job is about 90% in your hands. You only have to tell the doctor and their nurse about your job and school history. The interview with the admin coordinators was LONG, but I did not feel it because I knew I was qualified, and that's what they want to see if you have what it takes to be a part of the team. They ask several behavioral questions, so be prepared to give examples for each question. Believe it or not, glass door helped me get the job, I studied the questions other people posted. Most of them are the same. DO RESEARCH ON THE HOSPITAL AS WELL. Even if you only know when MSKCC was first founded, and who they were founded by. Good luck!
