    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CoreLab Partners (Princeton, NJ) in October 2010.

    Interview

    A standard telephone interview (~50 minutes) with the HR perosn then followed by meeting with the hiring manager and management team. This took almost the whole day from 9 am to 3 pm. Overall was a good impression and that they were very focused on what they wanted. Key was my skill set and personality fit with others in the organization as previously mentioned in another review.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not much in the way of salary negotiation, as I was told what they would offer. Pay was a little less then competitors, but had other perks like matching 401K and summer hours.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CoreLab Partners (Princeton, NJ) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Very standard telephone interview primarily focused on technical background. This was probably 30-40 minutes. A series of 1-on-1 personal interviews with potential colleagues, managers and senior management. Overall impression was that they were not very well organized in their approach, but were as interested in personality fit as technical background.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle working with highly educated professionals, considered experts in their field, when they have an opinion on how to approach a problem different than yours?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much in the way of salary negotiation, they probably pay less then competitors. If you have other items you wish to negotate (time off, work from home, etc) they try to be flexible. Be careful to document all verbal promises, as HR sometimes "forgets" what was said. They said that bonuses were almost always 100% of target during the employment process, and then backtracked after my first year despite a stellar review.
