    Great place to work. Beautiful campus. Ability to easily advance from within. Computer and other classes available. Above-average salaries. Large, well established company.


    I do not have any cons to express except that, if you have work- or employee-related troubles, try to find someone to help you remedy them.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Southwest Research Institute (San Antonio, TX) in June 2015.


    Received an initial phone call after applying on-line. After the initial phone call, a more in-depth phone interview was set up. The phone call was about thirty minutes and they asked me a couple of questions and talked a little about the company and the work they do. After the phone interview, I was invited to a series of interviews on campus. The on-campus interviews took about four hours. I had to give a twenty minute presentation and meet with about four people individually, and one group interview where five employees interviewed me.
