    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Washington.

    Interview

    I applied online which was nice. You need to give your GRE test scores, letters recommendation, an essay explaining why you want to get into Biostatistics and a transcript of your grades and classes taken. I know they really look at your letters of recommendation the most.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to be in Biostatistics?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    At the time they were able to offer me a stipend to work in the summer before I started school which was great.

    Student Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    The hiring process for this position is pretty simple. You send your resume to whatever recruiter is accepting applications at that time. From there, they will contact you via email and set up an interview with you. The interview is a group process. The recruitment panel starts by asking interview questions. During this part, I would encourage you to make sure your voice is heard without dominating the conversation (don't answer ever question). The are measuring how you work well with the team collectively. From there, the interviewers will administrate a case study. From there, it's the groups job to prioritize the importance and give a reasonable explanation of how you would handle the situation. Again, they are looking for how well you work with the team, but also your ability to articulste yourself. If you do well, the position should be yours.

    Advancement Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Washington.

    Interview

    Many, MANY interviews for a fairly low-rung job, but it's to be expected at a public university. It was clear that folks were not prepared for the interviews, and/or didn't really feel the need to exert too much effort. Maybe refining the process so only the input of those working most closely with the position is necessary would be helpful. Felt very much like a cog in a big machine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was with HR and with the hiring physician, and was very relaxed yet focused on my skills and abilities. I felt the hiring team had a good insight into the daily responsibilities of the open position, and were able to answer all of my questions. Most of their questions for me dealt specifically with my experience and the open position, and were not "outcomes" or behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Washington in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was excited about this role and thought the interview process went very well. Following the final interview I was contacted by the hiring manager who told me that I was the committee's top choice and the most qualified, however the other candidate was just out of school and willing to take a lower salary. The manager stated that for my salary I had to commit to stay for several years (even though this was a temporary contract position). This whole interaction left a bad taste in my mouth so I walked away from the position. I didn't want to work for a manipulative manager.
