    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. I received an email back from another recruiter saying they liked me and wanted to set up an interview for another position they thought I would do well in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Received an interview request email within a few days of applying, then interviewed once onsite a few days after that. During the 2.5 hour interview, I met with 4 people (individually & group) and took a half hour skills test. Meeting with all people/taking test was not intended at first, but the Interviewer thought I was a good fit for another position and wanted me to meet with as many other people as possible. Everyone was courteous, and gave me a good impression of what the culture was like. They asked for copies of my resume as well. Would still be very interested in working for the company based on interview experience despite lack of offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself/education, why are you interested in the position, do I have experience doing certain tasks this job requires, what are my career goals, how did I become interested in my major, why do I want to work at Mount Sinai - no questions surprised me or caught me off guard.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Health System (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Smooth and efficient process. Takes like 2 weeks . A lot of questions to answer in application. Recruiter would no answer calls in a timely manner this delays the whole process. Logistics are difficult to understand and you have to go to many different palaces to do your health screening. Overall experience was good but I would like it to be easier.
