    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Singapore General Hospital (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    HR process was very smooth and the people from HR were really nice and helpful. The interviewer was the supervisor/PI of the research project and was very nice and amiable. Interview process was very casual and comfortable. He asked some very general interview questions like "Tell me about yourself", "Why do you want this job", "Tell me about some of your work experience". He also asked with regards to some of the laboratory techniques and skills that I have and some theoretical aspects of them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Singapore General Hospital (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was done by the assistant manager and the manger. The interview was rather a casual one. It started off by telling more about myself and they asked what I know about the job. After which, the assistant manager briefed me more about the job scope and expectations. No technical questions asked. More of a get-to-know-you session. After the first interview, there will be an second panel interview by the directors. I haven't go for the second interview so couldn't say anything about it. Got the call for the second interview 3 working days later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Singapore General Hospital (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was an internal candidate and had to filled up a bunch of forms. Provided with vague direction from HR on informing or not informing your the immediate superior on the intention to apply this programme. (on hindsight its probably better to inform the supervisor)

    2 tests was conducted before the interview. 1. Was tasked to do a report on some healthcare trends based on a paragraph that they provide you within an hour 2. Had to do a bunch of statistical and analysis based on the data provided within 24 hours. The interview is done once 1 and 2 is complete.

    Even with some experience in the healthcare industry, the questions asked were relatively complicated, in fact extremely difficult for a fresh graduate unless you have very good knowledge on the areas that they might ask.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to join this programme? Have you spoke or discussed with anyone on this and why? Lots of hypothetical questions that you had to think on your feet and generally no questions on what you had analysed.   Answer Question

    Research Coordinator Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    1st and one round - With hiring managers and HR

    Didn't have a good impression even before I attended interview. HR called and insisted I have to cancel all appointments to meet the interviewers three days after because one of them is a doctor and he insisted it.

    The interview last for over two hours. (Note: This is a Research Coordinator position which I applied.) Everyone at the panel looked at the doctor adoringly when he spoke. Even if anyone of them wanted to talk about the job, they looked at him and not me. This situation resembled the reviews given about existing staff in the hospital over here. The one hiring manager and HR were very rude this way but they seemed to suggest to you they will treat people who are not doctors, as furniture.

    The doctor interviewed using coercive techniques when in doubt and refused to introduce himself too. The hours spent and the way he asked questions suggested to me he wanted a staff whom he could abuse any ways he wanted , that he might not be a good boss , and preferably you should be as poor as a church mouse so that you could take up his job and let him and his staff do whatever they want to you.
