    Audiologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Tufts Medical Center (Boston, MA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Met with 4 different audiologists. No one had anything positive to say about working there. Lacking equipment, space and standards. Did some of interview standing up - couldn't find chairs or privacy. I was very disappointed given the hospital's reputation. Although I was told they only check references electronically, all my references were called before I left the building!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tufts Medical Center.

    Interview

    The interview process has been very long. I had a phone interview almost a month ago, and am still waiting for a in person interview. I've called multiple times to follow up, and I'm told that scheduling has been an issue for the nurse managers. I've asked if they have already filled the position - but claim they will definitely call me when they figure out a time. It's been almost a month since I've started interviewing with them for a nursing position.

    Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Tufts Medical Center (Boston, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the hiring manager expressing his interest in me as a candidate for the position in late July 2017. It took a month an a half to get in for my first interview, where eventually I met with 4 people in the Molecular and Cardiology Research Institute. They said they would contact me after they interviewed the rest of the candidates and let me know if they wanted to move forward with me to the next step. I didn't hear from them for 3 weeks, so I reach back out and didn't get a response for a week. When I did get an email response, I was surprised to hear that they wanted to "Move to the next step" with me in the hiring process after not hearing back for so long, and invited me in for another round of interviews. I went in for another interview 3 weeks later, when I met with the head Surgeon again and also with HR. I thought this was a really good sign, and I asked how close they were to making a decision. They told me it was down to me and one other candidate. I left hopeful, but then didn't hear back from them for a while. They would take days or a week to respond to emails, and after a 3 1/2 month process, someone from the department responded and told me they had offered the other competing candidate the position and he had accepted the offer. I never heard back from the hiring manager who was organizing the interview process. This was by far the worst interview experience I've ever had.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Tufts Medical Center.

    Interview

    Initial screening by staff, then by PI. Very dependent on culture of the team, so try to learn as much about the staff as you can and emphasize your ability to work well with people if this is a patient-based trial.

    Applications Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tufts Medical Center (Boston, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter or Hiring manager scheduled telephonic interview with Senior HR Representative. The position was related to my previous EHR work experience and I believe I met all the requirements mentioned on their job posting. Interview went well. Couple of weeks later, I sent follow up email to recruiter who arranged the interview; never got their reply. Left VM to her work number that was mentioned in email signature; no reply. My interview experience was good but follow up experience was not good. Till date haven't heard back from Tufts Medical Center. I would say a simple automated email about status would definitely save candidates and interviewers time.

    Brief, easy. They responded in a very timely manner. During the interview, the interviewer mainly just went over details on my resume to see if I would be a good fit with the current team. There weren't any questions that caught me off guard.
