    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Advanced Testing Laboratory (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. I had a phone interview and it seemed to go well. The interviewer told me the manager was out for the week on vacation and he would let me know the outcome either way when he returned. I never heard back from them. I followed up with a thank you email and still no response. The interviewer missed our initial call and didn't setup a new one until days later.

    Biologist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Advanced Testing Laboratory (Indianapolis, IN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Received an email about a phone screen from a senior recruiter. It was short and she asked general questions like expected pay, 5 year plan, what I know about ATL, and she provided me with information about the job posting and that it was to be in Indianapolis with one of their major clients. I deduced Eli Lilly.
    Then a day later we scheduled a phone interview with the General Manager and 2 Senior Managers from different ATL departments in Indianapolis since I lived out of state. It went well and I was interested and they were interested. They asked a few background questions and a few technical questions.
    Then they requested an in person interview but the next day I was informed of a hiring freeze for budget reasons. Then I was contacted 3 months later asking if I was still interested. I said sure and asked about who would cover the financial burden of travel for the interview and I was told that they don't usually pay for accommodations. Then I first confirmed that I was the most qualified for the position and decided to make the trip to the Lilly campus. I met with the General Manager and the Senior manager of the Discovery Biology group, along with 3 Lilly scientists. They were all very kind and personable. It took a total of a little more than 2 hours.
    The questions in the in person interview from the ATL managers were a mix of technical and overview of my resume again. And those questions from the Lilly scientists were very technical. To do well on the interview, just know your resume, simple enough.
    On my drive home an hour later I got a call offering the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Advanced Testing Laboratory (Blue Ash, OH) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by the laboratory manager and supervisor in person. They were very friendly and very interested in your past experience in the lab. The position was entry level and they offer a week of training and a "buddy" system afterwards. Many of the interview questions involved scenarios and how you would act or handle them. Currently I am a week and a half after the interview and still have yet to hear back, but I was the first interview for this position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Advanced Testing Laboratory (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Very basic behavioral questions. It was with the head of 3 different groups. Very casual and did not throw me any curve balls. They were all straight forward questions that you answer honestly. If you have trouble answering them, it won't be a good fit for you, but they are pretty basic questions. Sat down at a round table and everything was over in 30 minutes.
