    I worked at National Jewish Health full-time (More than 8 years)


    Wonderful community of employees, researchers and staff. Many go above and beyond to assist patients and work diligently to further their research. Fun events for staff are held on occasion, and overall work environment is friendly.


    Being a non profit, pay rates are not as high as other institutions. Many departments rely on grant funding. Several employees in leadership have extremely high salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how funding is dispersed in departments in order to help continue to advance research. Salaries are made public due to non profit status, so employees are aware that many receive incredibly higher salaries.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at National Jewish Health (Denver, CO) in April 2017.


    I applied online early in the month and received a phone call for an interview about three weeks later. First the conducted a phone interview and invited me in for an interview with the hiring managers. The interview was behavioral and lasted about 45 minutes. After that part of the interview they allowed me to tour the lab and talk to a few people about their positions. Afterwards, they contacted me in about 48 hours for a reference check. After the reference check was complete, HR said they would contact me within a few days, which after another follow up still did not happen.
