    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UT Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Did not make it to the interview process. The process you are you using doesn't give a real picture of who is being interviewed. The series of questions, disqualifies individuals without even knowing their History. Many of the question asked are not relevant to the position that you are applying for.

    Interview Questions

    • How to refund money? Is this question relevant to a security position?   Answer Question

    Clinical Data Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UT Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    You may interview with an entire panel or just a single manager; so be prepared for either. Also, if the department is really interested, you will likely have several interviews over the course of a few weeks. This is a state institution and there are over 12,000 employees at UTSW, and so you must be patient with the interview, hiring, and onboarding process.
