    Initial communication was through the HR employee based in Atlas Point, which entailed a brief phone interview including questions about interests and job details. The on-site interview lasted about two hours and consisted of a sequence of standard interview questions that were both competency-based and specific to chemistry knowledge. There were also questions about scientific method, research experience from the past, and aptitude for learning new skills. This was followed by a brief tour of the labs.
