    Project Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OHSU.

    Interview

    After applying, I received an email requesting a phone interview within a couple days. The phone interview was with an HR representative, which was incredibly positive not only because I received an interview offer, but she was very friendly and personable. It made the interview go much smoother. This was followed by two in-person, on-site interviews, the first of which was with a panel of individuals I'd be working with regularly. They asked questions round-robin style and allowed ample time for questions. In the final interview, I met with 4-5 people in their own, individual time slots. This time, it was various members of the executive management. Each in-person meeting lasted approximately an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions related to my work style, why I wanted to work in this field, and they required plenty of examples of projects I'd handled in past.   Answer Question

    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.

    Senior Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very swift and efficient, with scheduling for the interview, reference checks, and offer all occurring in a few days time. The interview panel were helpful in describing the goals and needs for the project. Unfortunately, the job title and salary range was posted incorrectly. I was offered the position but sadly could not accept based on the low salary offer. Next time I will be sure to clarify the title and salary range upfront in the interview. The interview panel was very apologetic and offered to work with HR on improving the transparency of the available salary in the future.

    Reasons for Declining
