Associate Scientist Interview

Interview

It started with a phone interview which lasted about 30 minutes. They then said that they would contact me about and in person interview. They flew me out for the interview and were very gracious and nice. The HR was slow at getting the interview set up and in informing me on the decision for the position.

    Negotiation

    A month went by without any feedback. I had an offer at another company so I simply called HR to hurry up and make their decision. Salary they offered was $10K less than what I was making and HR was shocked that I made that much. HR wanted my offer letter from previous company, including W-2 and income statement to verify. They came back and matched my salary. (so dont lie about your salary, I heard one person's offer was retracted because of inflated salary information)
