    Clinical Research Specialist- Department of Orthopedics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Maryland (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email saying that my resume has been reviewed and that they'd like to interview me. I flew from a different state for the interview.

    Interview process was with the 3 other Clinical Research Specialists and one Clinical Research Manager. The interview was engaging and they explained the role and asked questions about my background and my interest in Clinical Research etc...After the interview, I was shown a tour of the department and the campus. A positive experience.

    HOWEVER, the follow up was very unprofessional. I had emailed the next day expressing my interest in the position and enquiring about further process. I received an email from one of the research specialists saying that the department liked me and that they'd like to schedule me for a second interview with the Department head. I held back my travel plans. As I was waiting for the email from them about the interview, I receive an email a few days later saying that the position has been filled and a formal thank you for my time.

    1) If the position was still open and you were considering other candidates, why email and say that my second interview would be scheduled with the Department head? Why not just say that I didn't make the next process

    2) They were pretty much non-existent after they sent the rejection email as I have followed up with more than one person sending them emails but, it was as if I have never existed.

    I understand that the interview process involves many candidates. The least you can do is show back the professional attitude that the candidates go out of their way to show (especially when they travel from a different state because they're so interested in the organization) Atleast show them respect and apologize for the false emails and information.
