Four Ukrainian children and their family members arrived this week at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. St. Jude is the first hospital in the U.S. to receive patients from Ukraine. The families travelled aboard a U.S. government-operated medical transport aircraft from Krakow, Poland. Thanks to St. Jude Global's initiative, SAFER Ukraine, these patients will receive cancer treatment and trauma-informed psychosocial therapy to address psychological, social, emotional, and cultural needs.

Pros

We have incredible healthcare benefits!!! I feel like St. Jude looks out for my health and well-being. I love having an onsite pharmacy and clinic; it makes it way easier for me to keep appointments

Cons

It's a pandemic, so we are BUSY. We're tired and stressed. We've been forced to make some changes in some of our departments to better handle the pandemic. Some of us have transitioned to remote work

Advice to Management

Keep on listening to those employees on the front lines. We tout ourselves as a place where good ideas can come from anyone, but we need to do a better job of showcasing it when it happens. I think

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in Oct 2020

    Interview

    I got a call from a recruiter about two weeks after applying asking me if I was still interested and of course I was!!! She explained that, owing to the pandemic, St. Jude wasn't holding on-site interviews for everyone and that I would have a video interview first. I was a little stressed because I hadn't interviewed on a video platform before. The recruiter prepared me for it, let me know to be mindful of the time and to not ramble, and that the questions would be pre-recorded (it wasn't a live video). I was able to complete the video interview at home one night. It was kind of daunting to be talking to a screen instead of a person, but the questions were pertinent to my job experience, and I felt good about it. About a week after that, I was invited to come onto the St. Jude campus for an interview. I was required to wear a mask the whole time and they made me feel very safe by having social distancing in place. I had three one-on-one interviews and a panel interview with some other members of the team. Everyone was very friendly. I did feel like people were genuinely interested in my work and some ideas I had. I got a strong sense that these are people that truly care about their jobs. I asked them some questions about diversity in their department, opportunities for growth, and benefits and they were all very receptive and open with their answers. I enjoyed the process and felt very good about it after. They told me they had another person they were interviewing in person and would let me know by the end of the following week. The recruiter got in touch with me after the interview to ask me how I thought it went and if I had any other questions. I thought that was very professional and made me feel like they were genuinely interested in my feedback.
    Interview

    Questions about conflicts in the workplace, how I have approached certain problems/scenarios in the past, why I wanted to work at St. Jude, what I envisioned myself accomplishing in 6-12 months within the job, what things I need to best set myself up for success, and general questions about collaboration within my previous team and how we tackled problems together in the past.
