    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Materia in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward. HR assistant contacted me through e-mail and set up a day for interview. Interviewed with a few senior researchers that I would be working with. Answers were pretty standard, they asked details about my previous experience, likes/dislikes. Also asked about my work ethic and gauged my attitude to working there. The 3 senior chemists seemed positive about my skills and were nice to talk to.
