    The Mount Sinai Hospital has several specialty areas. Is there an area that you least prefer to work in and, if so, why?

      How to Answer

      This is NOT a trick question. There are no wrong answers. The interviewer genuinely wants to know not only what interests you, but what does not. Are you pretty flexible in your ability to work in most environments? If there is an area that would not be your personal choice to be assigned, now is the time to state that. Be sure to know the type of situation offered in this position prior to the interview. If you aren't completely clear on the workplace environment or culture, kindly ask the interviewer to expand on the work environment for you.

      Darby's Answer

      "The diversity of the Mount Sinai Hospital is one thing that attracted me to your facility. I can be productive in most work environments, especially if teamwork is encouraged. However, I must admit, if I had to choose my least likely preference, it would be pediatrics. I love children, but prefer to work with adults."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I have to admit, I haven't yet experienced a specialty area that I couldn't find my niche in. I love being a healthcare provider and feel like I can be flexible where I am needed. I love working with like-minded people who set challenging goals for themselves. I thrive when I work for supervisors who encourage curiosity and creativity in problem-solving."

      "Though I am interested in hospital pharmacy, the area I am least interested in is outpatient pharmacy because it has some similarities to retail pharmacy. At this moment I am not interested in continuing down the retail path because I want more clinic experience."
