    Information Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It's a large and somewhat fractionated company that after being recently compromised has decided to start staffing the IT department more appropriately. They rely on outsourced IT recruitment for applicants and while the process can take time, approximately 1-2 month, they do try to get back to you with some type of response. The onus is on the Applicant to check as to where in the process the decision is, so that can make things a bit stressful if you are relying on a quick answer to plan your career move. They prefer local versus out-of the area applicant. The IT team (i.e.: the working class) is very congenial and friendly, accepting of variety any ideas and love to interact with the new Applicants. The VIP and Management are more isolated, focus on memorization of knowledge and a grasp on a variety of subject matter as opposed to personality, work ethic and the obvious - intelligence. This is an indication that management is not in touch with the real world nor with their employees and hence I am willing to bet that decisions reflect those ideas. The general staff is very accommodating and truly respectful of the process and make every effort to accommodate all the needs during the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The application process at OHSU starts with their horrible job search site. It is very outdated, doesn't work properly with all web browers or Apple devices. I had a 30-minute phone screening, it was a little rushed, but all questions were asked. First ten minutes where about the job and procedure. The next steps after a phone screening were two different panel interviews.

    I received positive reviews, but they decided to move forward with an internal candidate.

    Interview Questions

    Senior Research Assistant Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the low salary offer was not viable.

    Data Manager Interview Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OHSU (Portland, OR) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone interview, followed by two 1:1 with leadership and one panel interview with the team. Showed previous work samples and how would approach solving some of the problems they were facing.
    Submitted references and surprisingly the reference checks were conducted by the director himself and I did not receive a good feedback on how this process was handled. My references felt they were being interviewed.
    I was contacted directly by the director with a job offer. The negotiation was not handled by HR but again by the director. As unprofessional as it is, he insisted in knowing my salary history which I did not share. I did share my requirements which were within their range but he was not willing to match or negotiate on anything and started referring to different job requirements than those advertised.

    Picturing the mess it would be working there, when they advertise and interview for a job then change the requirements, I immediately withdraw my application.
    Most unprofessional negotiation I have ever had with an organization trying to secure my services.

    The salary ranges are in line to below market rate. They are also really wide and unfortunately they seem to offer only at the lower end. Keep this in mind when considering applying. I wasted a ton of time and money since I had to pay for flights. If you are going from out of state make sure they pay for all your expenses as the offer will disappoint you.

    Interview Questions

    • Usual behavioral and some basic technical questions. I was leading the conversation since they did not have a clear understanding of what their real needs and requirements were.   1 Answer
