    Physician Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I had to follow up allot to get the initial interview which was very casual & went very well. I was asked back to a much more formal interview. With the whole team we're I was basically reinterviewed by 5 different people. The most difficult question which should have been easy was "why do you want to work here?" I had a tough time having the answer not sound cheesy & canned. I practiced several responses but the delivery was difficult under pressure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    University of Washington Advancement department.
    Process was smooth and efficient through the interview. I was actually impressed with how well laid out and scheduled it was.
    Then nothing. Nothing.
    I interviewed in April, did several follow up emails over the next months, but not even HR who had done my initial screening would return my email. Finally got a reply that "next week we'll know and contact you" after 8 weeks had passed. It's now the end of July and still haven't heard anything. Rude and unprofessional. I finally wrote and asked to have my application withdrawn.

    Operations Program Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Rescinded interview offer due to fictitious job announcement and wasn't going to waste my time interviewing for a job that I had absolutely no chance of getting. Some departments, not all, have some very unscrupulous people that are in upper management that don't represent the University very well.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Department of Pathology. They were very nice and made you feel comfortable through the entire process. They asked around 20 questions, from basic to more specific to the job description. Both interviewers seemed down to earth and were straight forward with their expectations for the position.
    The salary is up for negotiation. Declined offer because of better offer from another Department.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    It was very straightforward and handled directly by the people I would be working with. It was a casual interview that did not seem to have any particular structure. I believe here the process is quite varied from department to department and even within departments.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had E-mail to verify my background and additional questions(like expect pay rate, why I want to get this job etc..), and first recruiter forwarded me to phone interview. I didn't get any feedback a month after interview, so I had to send e-mail several times to confirm outcome. Overall, that screening interview was performed very unprofessional manner. I am very disappointed from it.

    Interview

    I applied the job online about a month ago, and finally I got the chance to have an In-person interview. The interview went well and we spent almost an hour for the entire interview. There were two managers interviewed me at the same time, and each of them had their own job related questions for me. All the questions were standard questions like other companies, and only three questions required specific answers with couple examples.
