    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interviewer seemed outwardly tired, and the interview was very short. It was difficult to fully answer at least one of the questions asked before the interviewer interjected, preventing elaboration. I was then made to wait to see if someone else could meet with me, but ultimately nobody did.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a very friendly interview experience. All my interviewers were warm and detailed on what they were looking for in the position. Considering I was applying for one particular department, the interview process could have been a little different than the standard proceedings. I had gone in to interview three times with different people in the department. (One was a group interview) and a final interview with HR where I received my offer. When interviewing for this place, just be prepared to go in for interviews multiple times.

    Once you accept the offer you have to go do blood work and other medical exams at their affiliated clinic and go into their office to set up an appointment for your On-boarding process to receive your Photo ID/Security Pass.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time where you had to deal with conflict in the office and describe how you dealt with the situation.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College.

    Interview

    Three phases in the interview process. The first interview involved interviewing with the director of the department. The second interview was with the physician involved with the department of interest for the clinical trials and then the third was with HR, which is the only department that can formally extended a job offer to you. The interview process took a full month before I found out I got the job.

    Research Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I applied directly with the PI (Principal Investigator) and was called in for an interview about a week later. Trying to apply through HR is a complete waste of time. I met with the PI only, and the interview revolved around my undergraduate coursework and prior research experience. I brought a copy of the paper where some of the research I contributed to had been published.

    But the PI wanted a minimum two year commitment to the position. There was also the expectation that I share his level of interest in the research, meaning working nights and weekends. And since Research Technician positions are grant funded, the low salary being offered was all I would be paid. With all the expected overtime, it would basically work out to minimum wage. And since Research Technician positions are grant funded, the PI couldn't guarantee me job security even if I wanted to stay two years. If his future grant proposals were rejected by NIH, NSF, etc., there would be no money. There were no promotions or decent salary increases in the pipeline either. It was basically a terminal position with small cost of living increases at the most.

    I received an email from the PI about a month later letting me know the position had been filled. But I knew from the interview that it wasn't going to work out. The job description doesn't exactly advertise it, but it basically only works if you intend to go to medical school in a few years. And you need to come from a rich family, because the non-negotiable salary isn't enough to live on in New York City.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted about a month after I applied via email. After answering a few introductory questions, I was called in for an interview. Met with PI and several members of the lab. All were very kind, and the conversations were mostly about the research being done at the lab. I followed up, and about two weeks later the PI let me know the position had gone to someone else.
