    Lots of bureaucracy, lots of red tape in terms of safety.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lawrence Berkeley Lab.

    Interview Details

    Usually, a phone interview and 1 or 2 group interviews. My experience, because I had over 10 years admin experience, was just 2 group interviews, the first with the admin group (my future supervisor, another admin supervisor and an admin employee) and the second interview, was with the group head I was supporting, plus 2 of the group members.
