    Research Assistant II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Contacted by email to set up a brief phone interview. Phone interview was relaxed and lasted about 15 minutes. Then I went and toured the facilities and met with the head of the lab and another member of the lab where they spent most of the time explaining the job position, but also asked me interview type questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OHSU.

    Interview

    I met with three people from the department. No one asked me about my experience or background. I spent an hour listening to the director pitch the department to me. It wasn't clear during the interview who the hiring manager was. It turned out it was the person seated beside me, who never asked me any questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't asked any questions. I did volunteer information in response to what I was told about the position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I needed the job. I was offered the position of Research Associate, but when I received the contract, it had been downgraded to Senior Research Assistant. They were very low-ball on the salary. I was offered $58K but was able to talk them up to $60K.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was in Michigan back then, my current boss called and talked to me for 15 min, then called my referral and probably talked for another 10 min, and I was hired later that evening. I was hired in March but only started my new job in July due to visa application and yes, they do provide you with H1B visa. If they said they don't, look for another PI.

    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.
