    Analyst/Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UC San Francisco.

    Interview

    After applying for this position, I received an interview request. However, once I arrived at the interview, I was told that the position was not the one I applied for - it was for an Associate Director of Development position. I was then offered and accepted this higher-paying position, but was not given guidance around the description. When I asked for guidance, I was let go at a meeting that my supervisor told me was to clarify the position description. On the morning of the same day I was let go, an internal staff meeting included a welcome of someone who was just hired into the position I originally applied for. This was at the UDAR (University Development and Alumni Relations) office in San Francisco.

    Division Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UC San Francisco.

    Interview

    I was an internal applicant fo a department I’ve been working in for three years. Process felt long.
    Had an initial interview/screening with the department administrator after discussing the role and expressing interest/ applying online. Second round was a two hour interview with six of the individuals this role would be closely working with (individuals I already knew as an internal candidate). Reference request was sent out an completed after this round (although would have preferred this had been sent once interviews had been completed and if they had intended to offer me the role) . Last and final interview was with the medical director. Job offer was not extended - total time from application was about two months. Ultimately the final interviewee’s judgement call (which was the shortest at 15 minutes) was the most important - although my other interviews went well I did not get the role. Per feedback I was too nervous and the director felt I could not handle a group of physician’s demands.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UC San Francisco.

    I applied via. UCSF's career website. Over two months later I get a weird survey email asking me about my experience dealing with UCSF's recruiter. Then a while later, I randomly get a very detailed email from a supervisor in the department of the position.

    Instead of a normal interview process, I received 4 interview questions via. email. The Supervisor wanted me answer interview questions via. email.

    Haven't heard from the person or anyone since. Very odd experience...

    Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UC San Francisco (New Orleans, LA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for a research coordinator position with UCSF's organization, Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health. I applied online and was contacted via email within a week of applying. A 30 minute phone interview was conducted. I received an email a week after that to complete a video interview, where I interviewed for almost an hour with four people. I was told I would hear back in about a week. After that week passed and I heard nothing, I attempted to follow up on the status of my application by email. I never received a response from anyone. I feel the organization lacks respect for its prospective employees' time and efforts considering they did not even give me the courtesy of an email saying I hadn't been chosen for the position.
