    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I was one of many candidates to be selected for an interview and I was incredibly nervous. It was a panel interview with several key members of the office from multiple levels of the organization, including the executive team. They were thoroughly prepared, had a clear sense of the requirements of the job, asked good questions, good follow up questions, and were genuinely interested in learning as much as possible about me as a candidate in that brief time.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Required both phone and in-person interview. They use interview teams that you meet with for this position. The phone interview is a screening interview prior to asking you to come in to meet with them. Had to do a presentation for the faculty. Takes several weeks, but worth going through the process.

    • What makes you qualified for this position. What do you bring to this position that others might not.   1 Answer

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Had a brief phone discussion and scheduled a 1:1 interview for later in the week. That interview was very comfortable and carried on conversationally for an hour. Immediately was asked to return for a panel interview the next week. The panel was with 4 team members in similar roles and again was comfortable. Everyone was very friendly and responsive to my questions. I was told that the choice was between one other candidate and myself, and that I should expect to hear by the end of the day or early the following day. Never received a call, which I took to mean that the other individual was chosen. I was OK with that, but a call to let me know would have been considerate. This was actually the second time this had happened after an interview at UW Medicine within a month. Three trips there and time away from work, a simple call is the least they could do. Might make me think twice before even applying next time.
