    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Simple, straight forward. They were looking for someone in a hurry and I was a good fit for the job, so it wasn't a difficult process. Interviewer was nice, took maybe an hour, nothing particularly notable about it. Wouldn't worry about interviewing with them again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System in June 2017.

    Interview

    Quick 6 minute conversation where I was asked to walk through the type of work I did. When it came to salary, I gave my requirements that I shared in my initial application. Turns out they were only paying half of what I was looking for. Interviewer was very polite and naturally said we wouldn't be able to proceed to the next step.

    I heard back from a recruiter within 2 weeks or so of me submitting an application. He set up a brief phone interview. Then I was set up with a face to face interview with 2 people. The interview was okay no crazy questions all standard interview they were very nice. They told me if they chose me they would get back to me within a week or so.

    It was very quick and easy. Very friendly staff and not hard on you at all. I wish we would’ve spoken for a longer amount of time but other managers needed assistance.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was interviewed a total of four times. The first question is always "Tell me about yourself" and "what do you do at your current job?", "why do you want to leave?"...etc At one specific interview i was asked questions such as what i like least at my job, how am i with my cell phone at work (they wanted to know if you are a constant texter or social network person who will constantly be on their phone). They also asked how am i with co workers on a Monday morning after a weekend (to see if you are the type of individual that will come in to work and chit chat for half the morning. I believe that each interview was unique and the questions were never something that someone couldn't handle. Honesty and confidence. The interviewers were always pleasant, friendly and easy to feel comfortable with.
