Senior Research Scientist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Aberdeen, MD
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Battelle (Aberdeen, MD) in November 2007.

Interview

I have know the person doing the inteview for about 20 years. We had both been in the Army had two assignments together. So when I saw this individual I mentioned that I was not happy with my former employeer and he suggested we discuss. He invited me to lunch where we discussed what he was looking for and how he was organized. Then had formal interview with his manager in Washington D.C. the questions concerned what I was doing, why I wanted to leave my former employeeer and how I saw contributing to Battelle. Most of the questions concerned how I would go about growing business.

Negotiation

I was not able to negotiate much. The salary offered was about at the bottom of my salary range so they offered me a hiring bonus which made the deal much better. I tried to get them to offer me salary in lieu of benefits but this was not allowed. So negotiations were fast and about what I expected.
