    Pros

    The scientists that they employ are professionals of the highest caliber.

    You learn SO MUCH just being within their proximity, and by interacting with them on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Occasionally, the ramp-up process can lag behind, as can securing appropriate network and data access credentials.

    And for non-scientific personnel, there isn't a formal "training" program to supplement any of the critical disciplines.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit as much project work as possible to keep employees engaged.

    And commit to refreshing hardware and peripherals on a more aggressive schedule to keep people working with current tools.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Cardno (Alabaster, AL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My resume was forwarded to Cardno ATC's Laboratory Supervisor from one of the Internet Job boards and I received an e-mail inviting me for an interview. I waited one week before my interview appointment. During my wait time I sent e-mails to him asking more about the position and he quickly replied and answered all questions in great detail.

    Interview Questions

    • To start, they wanted me to tell them more about myself. How much would you like to be paid an hour? What Science classes have you taken? They described the job in great detail and are willing to teach everything necessary to succeed in the job. They informed me that they are currently in the middle of a company merge. Also that certifications as needed will be paid for by the company.   Answer Question
