Positive Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in Dec 2017

Interview

Applied via St. Jude's career website. Took perhaps several weeks to hear back but proceeded smoothly from there. Typical phone screen followed by a full day plus on-site meeting with faculty and staff. Second on-site visit was 1.5 days. All handled very professionally. About 2-2.5 months from initial interview to accepted offer.

Interview

All day experience. Met with several people throughout the entire department. Overall it was informative, but you need to be prepared with more questions than you would for an average interview because of the number of people you have to meet with. The experience is draining, but gives good insight into the department/company.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in Sep 2020

Interview

It took about 4 weeks to be interviewed. The first interview was done through a third party app where I answered basic behavioral questions and questions about my experience. The second interview I got to meet members of the team over an app called Webex (this was during the pandemic). During the second interview, they took the time to get to know me and my experiences, but did not ask your classic "interview" questions which was shocking. I felt at ease and had conversations with 5 people from different areas at St. Jude.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bartlett, TN

Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Bartlett, TN) in Apr 2020

Interview

Two interviews. The first was a 40-minute phone interview with the supervisor and the second was a video interview (due to COVID-19) with two of the coworkers. The first interview went really well. The supervisor was very nice. The second interview was harder because there was no way to prepare for it. They asked behavioral questions and wanted me to answer in a certain format, telling a situation, task, and result for each one. None of the questions really had anything to do with my work history. Most of them were situational and it was hard to answer if I had not been in those certain situations. I didn’t think I had aced the second interview although I thought I did pretty well considering I couldn’t really prepare to be asked those types of questions. After the second interview, I waited about a month and a half before finally getting a response from the recruiter that I had not been selected. I would just say that it would have been nicer to have known sooner.

Interview Questions
  • Explain a time when you spoke in front of a large crowd.
  • How would you convince someone outside of your department such as IT to do something for you?

Interview

the interview process was stressful, but very smooth. The HR department was very friendly and wanted to help me with the process. Also, a video interview was required in order to get selected. there were 9 questions, 20 seconds to prepare for the question and 3 minutes to answer. They gave 2 shots to answer, but you could not review the second choice. If you did not like the first choice, then the second was the one you sent, without review.
