Lab Assistant Interview

Lab Assistant
Philadelphia, PA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Pennsylvania in May 2009.

Interview Details – Was a fairly easy interview, some basic questions about my line of work were asked as well as a small written test. I had to do an online computer skills based test as well as a personality question based text. Overall the tests were fairly easy and I got the job.

Interview Question – It would be unfair of me to say.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated my salary, it went fairly well.
