    Clinical Research Associate I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    It began with a phone interview with the hiring manager then an in person interview with the manager and the team. The phone interview was really nice, lots of questions. It wasn't intimidating at all. I would say the most difficult part is the panel interview but that always depends on how well you do when talking in front of people. There was about 7+ people in the panel interview. With all the eyes staring at you and the awkward silence, you really have to keep the conversation going with questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to leave your current position and why? What makes you want to work at children? What regulatory experiences do you have? Have you worked with grading toxicities? How do you handle stress?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    1. Applied online
    2. Was requested by HR to write a cover letter to send in
    3. Phone interview with hiring manager
    4. Phone interview with another data analyst (the one that was leaving)
    5. Phone interview with a department leader the following week
    6. On-site interview with other directors, department leaders, and admin team (total 9-10 people, panel and 1-on-1 interviews) on a Tuesday
    7. Was verbally offered the position by hiring manager on Friday and given a week to accept
    8. Monday was a holiday, so on Tuesday I asked a few questions regarding the package and negotiated, was told there will be zero concessions
    9. On Wednesday at 9am, HR decided to rescind the offer

    My references and background are stellar, by the way. Perhaps they don't like people who negotiate.

    A shame since Seattle Children's is a fantastic hospital. It would have been very rewarding to work there, but a company that goes back on their word is a huge red flag.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Straightforward process. Over-the-phone interview first with some pretty expected screening questions followed by an in-person interview a week later. In person interview was with two hiring managers who showed up late to the interview. Interview questions were straightforward generic interviewing questions. Office where interview was held felt a bit cramped but was otherwise comfortable enough.

    Very short interview, only about 10 minutes. Casual and friendly interviewers, make you feel comfortable and relaxed while still asking some real thinker-type questions. Had three people sitting in on the interview, asked about 6 questions total then contacted me in about a week to offer the position.
