    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Certified Laboratories.

    Interview

    They asked me to fill out an application form and then I waited around half an hour to be called to see HR rep. I waited another 30 minutes to talk to the department manager. I was supposed to see another person but that person wasn't available so that was it for me.

    Was called by the main office in NY and was told a little bit about the position, pay rate, and general info about the company. Set up interview date and time, which was about a week later. Went for the interview, was suppose to meet up with about 5 different people but only met with four since the last person went home early that day. Showed me different parts of the facility and was given alot of information about what they do and how they go about doing it. Asked me about myself, where i lived, what i went to school for, current/previous jobs, what are my goals etc. Everything seemed fine and the interview went well, so i thought.

    Interview

    One of the worst interviews I have ever been on. The interviewer had no experience, was rude and projected an ignorance. They must not have a nepitism policy because this one must be related to someone to be in that position. If I could discribe the process in one word: ridiculous.
