    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2014.

    Interview

    My hiring and interview process experience was great for the current position. However, I do feel there is a large gap between the interviews.
    I was also one out of two top candidates for another position at UC, in which the interviews were set up with four different people over a course of six months and the fifth interview was still pending when I accepted the Research Coordinator position instead.
    However, for both positions, the interviewers were very friendly and I enjoyed interviewing with them.
    For the current position, I had three interviews. The first was a phone screen, second by the Professor hiring me and third by another Professor in the department. The third interview was very detailed and more intense than the three ones, asking a variety of questions about personal and professional life and also, asking what I would do in different case scenarios. Overall it was a good interview to judge how well suited I was for the position. My future goals were also considered.

    Interview Questions

    • I think the most difficult question I was asked was what was the biggest mistake I think I made in my personal life, and I was also asked the same for my professional life.   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    It was short-lived. I did not get the salary I was hoping for, but I accepted the position as it was a bridge to my future goals. The salary was in between what I asked and what was offered to me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2012.

    Interview

    It was a very quick phone interview. A faculty member called me and asked me to introduce myself based on my resume. Asked my teaching experience and some research questions, although they did not require it at all. Also asked me some behavior questions, and there was no surprise. The job offer was made the next week.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Cincinnati.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and applied via the jobsatuc.com online portal. After about two to three weeks I was contacted via email to set up a time for a phone interview with the hiring committee. After making it past that phase I was invited to an on-campus interview that lasted about half a day. I had three 1:1 interviews w/ the Director, AVP, and a Director from another unit I would be working with, and a group panel interview. They provided lunch and parking validation as well as detailed directions to/from campus.
