    A very easy, laid back phone interview. Asked basic questions about how much I knew about what the site does. They mainly wanted to judge how much research you had done and how interested you were in the company.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Got email from hiring manager saying they would call me for interview. Months passed until they finally called and scheduled. Paid for trip and stay. Spent one day interviewing with everyone from the group all the way up to SRNL manager. Relatively easy and laid back atmosphere. No hard interview questions like "how would you describe the color yellow to a blind person?"or silly things like that. Left having the feeling I was already hired. Got a call two days after with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing special, felt more like they were trying to figure out my personality and interests instead of how capable I was.   1 Answer

    Associate Eng Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.

    Interview

    Received phone call after applying (months later) for on-site interview. Travel was arranged for me. Dinner the night before interview with an engineer then interview the next morning, including tour of Site. Received an offer about a month or so later. Overall, great experience. Only negative is the amount of time it takes for anything to get done.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult. They want to see if you're a person they want to work with on a daily basis, not how many formulas you remembered from school.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate. Offer was fair, and I'm not sure if there is much negotiation allowed with these positions.
