    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UC San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen, multiple in person interviews; 2 hours of behavioral questions from 2 separate coordinators but really nice people and very low key. They want people that can commit to around 2 years at least so I could not continue in the process since I wanted to apply to medical school before that. But the experience seems like a great one for someone who wants to go into a healthcare field. There is lots of patient interaction and you work closely with really intelligent and well known physicians.

    Reasons for Declining

    They wanted 2 years minimum and I wanted to pursue medical school before that.

    Research Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UC San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. About a month later, the hiring manager called me to do a phone screen. A week after that, I had an in-person interview with the hiring manager and another manager, then a panel interview with three prospective coworkers. A month later, I was contacted for three references and a couple of weeks after that I was offered the position.

    Both the phone screen and in-person interview were very easy and, despite the second interview being a panel, not nerve-wracking. They asked basic questions ("What's a weakness of yours?" "Why are you interested in this job?") and a few impromptu questions based on my resume.

    • How you would respond if a person in authority asked you to do something that is in conflict with an established policy (e.g. HIPAA)?   Answer Question
