Research Study Assistant Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY).

Interview

I got a call from Talent Acquisition and was told that they were interested. I had not applied for this specific listing but I have applied for other RSA listings. The interview took some time to get because the department had not gotten back yet about to them about a time that they were free. I did well on the first interview and was told that I would have the second interview about 15 minutes later at the conclusion of the first interview. The second interview questions were a lot of "tell us a time where" questions. I did like how you meet the whole team of immediate higher-ups during the interview. I received an email that I did not receive the job about a week later.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Talent Acquisition Specialist first introduced me to the position. Asked a few questions and then had me visit my direct supervisors for the position. They were very friendly and welcoming. I realized they do not pass you on to the next meeting with direct supervisors unless you have impressed the Talent Acquisition Specialist. They said the next step will be to meet with a Doctor in the field and then basic HR follow-up.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Multiple steps, first with hiring manager, then research manager, and finally with the PI. After meeting witht he PI I was told that they went with another candidate. After which the hiring manager told me I can interview for another department. The same thing happened, and now she has asked me again if I would like to continue interviewing... so I have no idea what they are doing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process was expedited for me because I was referred by an active employee at the time. However, although I didn't get the initial position I interviewed for, they were helpful with getting me in with the right fit based on my experiences. As such, this took about 2 months.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went to meet with HR for an initial interview (rep said they usually have phone interview first, but they were in a rush to hire for this position), she liked me and sent me to meet with 4 supervisors on the main campus only an hour later (did not expect this as I was scheduled only for an interview with her that day). Had to come back twice after that to meet with CRM and two PIs, including the deputy director of the whole department. Filled out a survey of five references and was offered the job shortly thereafter.
