    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York).

    Interview

    I was taken to four different people involved with different aspects of the research including the pI, a physician, and the senior coordinator. It took approximately two hours. I asked a lot of questions and learned more about the position to better gauge my interest. I answered every question honestly. This includes answers that they may not have necessarily wanted to hear (but not completely disqualifying). I think it was very clear to them that I gave my honest answers.

I have sent a follow up email to the HR representer i spoke to but never heard back from them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very nice and professional. I had a negative experience with the hiring manager. She had a condescending tone, would not make eye contact and acted as if my questions were asinine (ex: I asked about the nursing culture of the unit). Needless to say, I decided it wasn't for me the second the interview ended.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I still think Mount Sinai is a great hospital, but their HR screening process needs to be more coherent. I applied to 2 jobs through their portal and an HR rep contacted me about a 3rd position I didn't apply for. I expressed my interested in Mount Sinai, but wasn't sure if the job she described was for me. She told me that she was going to schedule a call with her colleague who could go over more positions in their system that might fit me. She also give me a description for a 4th and 5th position to look at. When her colleague called me, I was asked about position #3, which added to my confusion since I was told the call would be to go over other positions. She ended the call abruptly saying I sounded hesitant about the position, which is true since I didn't apply for it and already expressed that I probably was not interested in position #3. I took the call because I was told it was to go over other positions. I emailed afterwards telling them thank you for their time and asking if there was a misunderstanding. Never heard back. Since HR is the first contact prospective employees have with a company, I suggest that they improve their communication and to not give people a negative impression of the hospital.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    HR called a few weeks after I applied online. Scheduled interview for the week after. Interview with nurse manager, staff nurse, and HR was in the room. Interview started off tough, but they softened up towards the end. Nurse manager turned out to be really nice. Gave me a tour of the unit and told me they'd call next week with update. HR called and extended offer. Beware, HR is terrible at Mount Sinai. You have to prod and prod to get any information about benefits.

    I applied early January and they got back to me mid January to schedule a in person interview. The interview was very quick (45 Min) and didn't include the Principle Investigator as he was busy teaching class. They said that this particular lab didn't try to prolong the interview. It was "What the lab is about, What are you about, and Here is a tour of the lab"
