    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Rockefeller University (New York, NY).


    Straightforward. Met with human resources, followed with another interview with the lab managers. Questions are pretty basic and direct. Some questions related to work ethic and how your degree if any prepared you for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel working with mice? Are you comfortable with performing procedures on animals?   Answer Question


    None. The salary was set as is. They would not negotiate
