    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Richmond, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at HDL in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process took place over a few days. It seemed a little disorganized - a majority of the interview seemed to be improvised, suggesting that they hadn't interviewed many other people. Once I met with the hiring manager, I was brought around to meet with the other members of the department. All of them asked me questions about my experience with certain technology (in particular, SQL Server and relational databases).

    Mass Spec Lab Tech/Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Richmond, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at HDL in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    They called me in for an interview about 2 days after I applied online. The interview was panel style with 4 different managers. They basically asked me about my experience with GC/MS and laboratory work; and also about my flexibility with work schedules. They asked alot of questions about how I handled various situations at my previous jobs; for example, they asked how I went about solving problems that arose while I was working alone. They also placed alot of emphasis on asking me how well I knew the "personality" of their company, such as the unique way in which they interact with their clients' and provide for their needs in multiple ways. All of it took about 15 minutes, and then I was taken on a tour of the lab and introduced to various employees in a very.. "dynamic" way, lol. Quite fun in my opinion.
