What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Do you have any questions for me? This was asked for both open and closed file interviews. However, the closed file he asked ME questions for about 15 minutes, then the rest of the interview I asked him stuff. Moral of the story: Come with a bunch of good, discussion-provoking questions. And LISTEN to what they say so you can ask insightful things about their responses." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Rush has a wide spectrum of buildings meaning that some of them are old and dumpy but some are very new and nice. Some of the elevators suck! Some of the other interviewees seemed like they were putting on a act, which kind of bothers me sometimes. But hey, didn't affect my performance so I guess who cares." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Interviews immediately follow the welcome session! Also, they say 30 minutes/interview but mine were 1 hour / 40 minutes. The doctors either don't know about time limits or don't care." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewers were both very friendly and easy to talk to. It seemed like they were pleased with my file and my responses so things were very low-stress = ). I spent a lot of the time just shootin' the shit basically. Some of it was medicine but a lot of it was random stuff." Report Response
