    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at National Marrow Donor Program.

    Interview

    Highly formulaic. Significant amount of time between interview and return call. HR seemed to come across as a major hold up to making a decision. Upon receiving the offer I had another interview scheduled the next day. The HR rep I spoke to was not pleased when I asked for a few days to consider my decision. This was somewhat off-putting.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Marrow Donor Program in October 2014.

    Interview

    very seamless and friendly HR staff. Applied for position and the following week received a phone interview. The week after a face-to-face interview, and about 2 weeks after that I received an offer. Interview took around 30min.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember specific questions but they interview using a set of behavioral questions such as "tell me a time when you...". you need to have examples for when you were proactive and when you worked well if other, and when you had a conflict but fixed it. The questions are off general HR hiring form. I think they must ask all candidates the same questions regardless of field - they were sort of generic.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me more than what I expected so I said yes early, but general rule... go up 10%.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Marrow Donor Program.

    Interview

    I went through two interviews. One was a phone screen with the recruiter. The next was with the hiring manager at the center. The hiring manager let me know they would get back to me in a week, but the next day the recruiter called me to give me an offer. No real room for negotiations. Interview questions were pretty basic. Tell me about a time you had to deal with difficult person and how did you handle the situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Marrow Donor Program (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The NMDP uses "behavior-based" interview questions. It's normal to interview with more than one person in the room - for example, an HR rep, the hiring manager, and a team lead or co-worker. The people interviewing will have been given a multi-page sheet of sample questions, which they read off in turn. Questions will typically be multi-part questions. An example: Tell us about a time when you did (blank). (Maybe, managed a project from start to finish; or maybe, had a disagreement with a colleague.) The main question will be followed by more specifics: What was the situation? Who did you talk to? What was the end result? These types of interview questions rely on the principle that past behavior on the job is is the best predictor of future behavior. Try to be specific in your answers. Even if it's something that happens all the time, you'll be asked to pick one illustrative example to talk about. Don't get hung up on answering all the multiple parts, in order. The questions are not meant to be a memory test - they are meant to get you talking about yourself and your approach to your work. Be honest in your answers. If you, for example, tend to avoid conflict or smooth over awkward situations, that's real for you. If, however, you normally face a conflict head-on, then let them know that. Maybe they're looking for a "smoother," or maybe they're looking for "honesty," but either way, if you're not yourself, then both you and the NMDP will be unhappy with the hire decision.
