    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was approached for my involvement in a alumni group that a current employee was part of. Afterwards, I engaged in a very brief conversational phone interview regarding the scope of the position and was probed to see if I was interested. Afterwards, I met twice with my eventual supervisor to outline the specifics of the role and what my day-to-day mission would be.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UCLA in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two professors during the first interview. This went really well as they were very personable and explained what the duties for the role involve. I received an invitation for a second interview about a week later as this was during thanksgiving. The second interview was really tough. I can definitely attribute my not getting the job to this interview but that is okay. The interviewer was very stern!

    Interview

    The recruiter was very quick at responding. The interview process was very seamless and efficient. She asked about my experience with working with others and problem solving. After being accepted, they have a day for training, and then you are expected to learn on the spot with different scenarios that tend to happen.

    Interview

    I entered and was questioned about my skills and previous CS experience in college. I was then given an interview question to answer, and I talked my way through what I was thinking for the problem. I wasn't able to correctly answer the question, but they thought my process was good enough to give me an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    You submit your application through a national data-base. Most applicants do a sub-internship in their 4th year of medical school to gain an advantage in the hiring process. However, this is not a mandatory requirement. The actual interview involves multiple mini-interviews with different members of the department, including current residents, faculty and the program director.
