    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Charles River Laboratories.

    Interview Details

    Really professional interview process. They were always on time and communicated effectively in terms of setting up interviews. Initially was contacted by HR for an interview, it consisted of a panel of 3 people that were very friendly and personable. Asked basic interview questions such as strengths, weaknesses, why this company. Second interview was also a panel of 3 and focused more on the position requirements. Interviews were about a week apart.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Charles River Laboratories in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    There's no phone interview; only a panel interview. Most of time was actually used for explaining the work you would do. The panel included three people: an HR person, and two research technician assistants. They weren't intimidating at all.

    Interview Questions
    • One of questions asks how comfortable would you be coordinating with the higher ups. Last question was about your opinion on animal research.   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Charles River Laboratories in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met with two groups of people. If memory serves, one group was more lab based and the other more paper-work based, although I'm not quite sure. Both groups were nice and suprisingly casual, that being said the experience was still intimidating. We went over my resume, future class schedule, and the typical interview questions ("tell us about a mistake you made and how you handled it." "Tell us about yourself" etc...).
