    Research Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    It took about 4 weeks to be interviewed. The first interview was done through a third party app where I answered basic behavioral questions and questions about my experience. The second interview I got to meet members of the team over an app called Webex (this was during the pandemic). During the second interview, they took the time to get to know me and my experiences, but did not ask your classic "interview" questions which was shocking. I felt at ease and had conversations with 5 people from different areas at St. Jude.

    Web Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bartlett, TN (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Bartlett, TN (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Two interviews. The first was a 40-minute phone interview with the supervisor and the second was a video interview (due to COVID-19) with two of the coworkers. The first interview went really well. The supervisor was very nice. The second interview was harder because there was no way to prepare for it. They asked behavioral questions and wanted me to answer in a certain format, telling a situation, task, and result for each one. None of the questions really had anything to do with my work history. Most of them were situational and it was hard to answer if I had not been in those certain situations. I didn’t think I had aced the second interview although I thought I did pretty well considering I couldn’t really prepare to be asked those types of questions. After the second interview, I waited about a month and a half before finally getting a response from the recruiter that I had not been selected. I would just say that it would have been nicer to have known sooner.

They gave 2 shots to answer, but you could not review the second choice. If you did not like the first choice, then the second was the one you sent, without review.

    Thank you for your review, but it might be that you applied for an internship with an affiliated organization. St. Jude does not offer field development positions, but our fundraising and awareness arm, which operates as a separate company, does.
