    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Charles River Laboratories in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process started by submitting a resume. I was called for a phone interview with the hiring manager. About a week later we had a follow up phone interview. I was invited in for a half day meeting with 7 different people. Each interview was about 30 minutes long. All of the organization was done through the HR department, not directly with the hiring manager.
