Associate Scientist I Interview

Associate Scientist I
Rockville, MD

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BioReliance in August 2009.

Interview Details – Applied online. Quickly got response (a week maybe) from HR and was contacted shortly after by the manager I would be working with. Standard phone interview, about 20 minutes asking background information and was told to come in for second interview.
Met with HR first, usual HR questions. Then met with direct manager and a director. Was asked background, techniques I know, education, what I hoped to get from job and future career plans.

Interview Question – HR interviewer had your standard questions, nothing special. Had to know/understand basic lab techniques.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – As a entry level position with very generous benefits, there was no negotiation. The company had just recovered from a bit of a downturn and layoffs. I was one of first to be hired afterwards.
