    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at INL (Idaho Falls, ID) in June 2016.

    Interview

    About two to three weeks after closing HR contacts you to schedule an interview. They want to have an interview in person until you ask about travel expenses at which point they have to check with the manager and within two days they will call to say a phone screen will work. You are sent an interview time confirmation email along with a five page application with four additional forms that you must complete and submit within 5 days of the interview.
    The interviews follow a script so all candidates are asked the same thing. Sometimes the interviewer will congratulate you on making it to being one of the five or six candidates they are interviewing because the competition was very high (usually means you won't be getting the job). At the end of the process the interviewer will say when they will be making a decision and that they will be getting back to you. Maybe 10% of managers will get back to you if they have selected someone else, usually you get an email about three months later informing you that the position has been filled. Interviewing with INL is good but the follow through to let you know what happened with the position is terrible.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at INL in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by on-site. Very professional. All interviews were with a panel. Questions were all scripted so there was nothing on the fly. The majority of the questions were geared towards how you meet the posted job requirement.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at INL (Pocatello, ID) in March 2016.

    Interview

    They did a presentation at Idaho State University and then I applied online to their internship job posting. They came on a selected date and interviewed all the candidates from various programs that applied. They had different groups interviewing for different positions. The interview went well and was pretty laid back. Most questions were typical interview questions about you, work history, behavioral questions, etc.

    Postdoctoral Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at INL (Idaho Falls, ID) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview first and about 45 days later, one full day on site interview where you also give a presentation. Met with 5-6 people. Got the offer 3 months later. A very slow process. Be prepared to get a drug screen even if it wasn't mentioned on the interview schedule.

    Interview Questions

    • The manager asked me a few behavioral questions such as what I would do if I don't agree with him and similar questions. Who do you want to be when you grew up? How important are publications? etc. Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with the interview host. Overall a relatively easy interview.   Answer Question
