    Social Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in August 2011.

    Interview

    This review is regarding a phone interview only. Following the phone interview I withdrew from consideration. The phone interviewer spent most of the time chuckling about her own experiences and that of the few job duties she would describe. Perhaps she wanted to just get a "feel" for me. I found the interview overall very incomplete, leaving me with many unanswered questions. I stated I had a lot of experience performing one key role. She assumed this to be the case and did not ask me any questions to verify. Always verify. Sometimes people exagerrate in interviews, I don't. Incisive questions need to be asked. I suppose I could have simply gone with the flow, but I am a professional health provider. I wondered how this person got their job. What kind of environment would I be entering?

    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at OHSU in February 2016.

    Interview

    I appreciated that the department kept the interview process moving quickly. I was first contacted for a brief phone interview where they explained the job and responsibilities. The following day I was emailed with an invitation to interview in-person where I met with 2 hiring managers and a CRC. A couple days later I was asked to come in again and meet the research team to see if it would be a good fit. The following week I was offered the position. Overall it was a very nice experience and the managers didn't ask any traditional interview questions, and instead wanted to learn more about me and my personality and goals.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OHSU in August 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online, and the HR person emailed me about the position. We had a phone interview and then she set up another phone interview for me to talk to the supervisor and the main person I would be working with (I lived long distance). The phone interview was fairly easy and then I set up an in-person interview. They didn't pay for the flight or relocation expenses or anything. The in-person interview was also fairly easy but I was very qualified for the job, so I don't know if that had anything to do with it.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, I can't think of anything. They pretty much just asked me questions right off of the job description.   Answer Question
