    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UPMC in July 2011.

    The hiring process was about three months. I submitted my application in April, got a call back in June for a phone interview, and eventually interviewed right after the 4th of July.

    Negotiation

    UPMC really does not budge on salary negotiations. I thought it was about 7-10k lower than I thought it would be, but ended up negotiating for an additional $1000 from the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UPMC (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I went into the room, the woman who was interviewing me was scattered and didn't have my resume. I printed it out off of her computer. The room was a mess, but she didn't seem to mind. It was a cramped room and i sat in a chair next to her desk where she was looking at email as she interviewed me. She was very closed off until I tried to ask about her own life and then she opened up a bit.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked very generic questions like "name a time when you had to deal with a difficult person" or "what would you do if you were running late for work" or "tell me a time when you had to rely on teamwork to get something done."   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UPMC (Farrell, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I waited two months to receive an email invitation for a phone interview. The interviewer liked me and offered me a face-to-face interview. He told me to bring scrubs to shadow.

She did not ask me to shadow and told me I would receive a call about an offer or lack thereof. I received no such call.
