    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Salk Institute.

    Interview Details

    The whole process was very quick and easy! I had 6 interviews in a 3 hour period, each with a panel of three people I would work with. Everyone was really friendly and annoyed that they had to go through stock HR questions before getting to know me better. The standard questions were all situational and focus on how you handled certain situations in the past.
