Was contacted very quickly after submitting my online application. A phone interview was conducted with general questions about my resume. About two weeks later I was called for a personal interview.
I was interviewed by two people. The questions were very easy and the interview was conversational. Questions ranged from "have you ever been in a situation where..." to questions regarding my school work and science experiences.

Interview Details – Interview process actually very well done. Phone interview structure was typical and questions were engaging. F2F interview was with what would be my boss. Very egotistical person, which was obvious from the first minute in the interview. Numerous times, he explained that he was a 'hired gun' brought in to make this place alot of money and he didn't care how he got the money. Not a place i wanted to work.
