My on-site interview was scheduled one week later. It was in the HR department with a TAS. TAS was very professional and asked me about some questions for about half hours. Then I was sent home.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on the company website and was phone screened by a recruiter about a day later. After the phone screen I did not hear anything from the recruiter for about three to four weeks. The recruiter reached out to me via email explaining that she was sorry she had not contacted me in so long and that she has new interview slots available for the role. She also asked me to do a video interview with her before meeting with the hiring managers and gave me some feedback on the role in which i was going to be interviewed for. After the skipe interview, I arrived to the in person interview 30 minutes early and was seen about an hour later. (I assumed my patience was being tested). I was interviewed by two of the hiring managers and was asked a series of behavioral "STAR" method questions. After the interview, The hiring managers gave me a sheet explaining the role again and different roles I would be eligible to apply for in the future. I was asked to have a seat in the waiting area and about five minutes later was told that the recruiter will reach out to me in about a week to let me know the next step in the hiring process. I honestly feel lost in a way because the two "hiring managers" that interviewed me didn't know that the recruiter was an actual recruiter and called her a hiring manager. I really dont think that they need anymore staff. I declined because i feel that they are over staffed with session Assistants and that can be very difficult in the future (fighting for hours) Also your not considered an employee to the hospital until your sixth month in. (The reason i declined)

    Interview

    I applied online. Then I had an interview with HR. The interview with HR consisted of a few behavioral questions and questions based on my skills and work experience. A few days later, I interviewed with two Session Assistant Supervisors. That interview went extremely well. They were very nice and down to earth. PREPARE ANSWERING BEHAVIORAL QUESTIONS!!! If you do not prepare, you will waste time thinking of work related scenarios. I was well prepared for this. They checked my references and I received an offer the next day. Overall, this was a great experience and I'm honored to be with such a great organization.
