    Interview

    The process was very long. Had several interviews before hiring. HR took the time to explain the benefits and quality of programs offered at the Laboratory. Thought the Lab was closer to the city.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brookhaven LAB (Upton, NY).

    Interview

    I sat one on one in HR to interview with the recruiter. I was then directed to the office/building of the position I was applying for. I interviewed with the manager and administrator that was hiring for the position. They expressed the position clearly, then they reviewed my resume, pointed out where they saw a good fit, asked me some follow up questions, clarified some resume bullets, inquired when I would be available if offered the position, showed me around the office/medical area, asked if I had any questions, shook my hand and stated that it was very nice to meet me. Even if I hadn't gotten the position they made me feel confident in my skills. It was a good experience.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brookhaven, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brookhaven LAB (Brookhaven, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First they did a phone interview. It was very short and unorganized on their side. Later when called back for the on site interview, a group of 4 people interviewed me and did not even know the phone interview took place. The on site interviewers asked a lot about the history of the lab. None of the questions seemed to pertain to the internship that was applied for. Very few technical questions were asked. Previous work experience was questioned about heavily.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brookhaven LAB (Upton, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Human Resources interview was first. One on one with HR person. He set the expectations and benefits of working there. Then I met with the manager and team. They asked some good technical questions. Not too difficult but definitely would trip you up if you didn't have the experience the job required.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Brookhaven LAB (Upton, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was typical. I was contacted about a month after I applied and first had a phone interview from someone in HR. I was then asked to schedule an on-site interview about a week later (if I'm remembering correctly). Brookhaven Lab is a huge place, but it was relatively easy to find where I needed to go. I interviewed in-person about 2 months after the phone interview (we kept having to reschedule due to the snow). I was interviewed by 3 employees. Interviewers were nice, asked typical questions, lasted about 30 minutes. I was contacted about a month later with an offer.
