    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is a packet of impersonal and redundant behavioral questions but the interviewers want you to be as specific as possible in drawing examples. It is a test of how well you can tell a story that sells yourself very well. Definitely prepare stories but also prepare to tell a story on the spot. Be charismatic.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call 3 days after. I had only the phone interview. The person only asked me questions; what do I know about the company? Have I ever worked with a team? And have I ever go above and beyond for a job/something etc? I got an email the week after stating that they decide to go with someone else but I think it was not fair since it was only 3 questions.

    Interview

    Interview process starts with the HR representative. If you pass that interview, you will be asked to see the supervisors. A good set of questions were asked during the interview with the managers so make sure to review the typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were pretty common like why do you want to work at Sloan and tell me a time you have to deal with a difficult person.   Answer Question

    The process itself is a well-oiled machine. You will see HR first for a screening and then have 1-2 more interviews with the supervisors at the location you will be working.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering.

    Interview

    Was referred for the position by a current employee. The next day I received a 5 - 10 minute phone call from the recruiter. He asked about why I chose healthcare, why did I want to work for MSKCC, college major, etc. Scheduled an face to face interview with the recruiter, he asked basic Behavioral questions (they want you to be very specific), the interview was very laid back and comfortable.

    I was scheduled for an interview the next day with two hiring managers at the main hospital. The interview was about 40 minutes, they also asked behavioral and situation questions, but they were very in depth. I'd suggest you prepare about 5 or 6 stories that you can immediately and fluently talk about on the spot.

    After that interview I was told to wait in a waiting room to see if I made it to the next and final interview with another hiring manager. This interview was very short (15-20 mins), she asked an additional 5 or 6 questions, some behavioral and some about past experiences. Overall the interview process was great; don't get nervous and practice, practive, practice!
