    Core Lab Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional yet laid back. Human Resources contacted me quickly (within a week) after I applied and soon scheduled a phone screen which was followed by an in person interview. The interview was 1 to 1 and I felt very comfortable and at ease. I also received a tour of the facilities and learned about the benefits offered. The interview lasted about two hours.

They were very friendly people. The whole interview was about 40 mins.

    Supposed to be onsite interview in San Diego, but I did not live in the area so they made accommodations to do a Skype interview instead.

There was about 30 minutes in between of technical questions about calculating dilutions and concentrations and stuff like that

    Research Technician I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (San Diego, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Very basic interview, no grilling, all in all an ok experience. A post doc and an instructor interview me first and then the PI asked a few general questions. I got a sense that they were more interested in asking me to stay for years on a very low salary than trying to judge my skills.

    Negotiation

    The offer was significantly less than my recent previous job at a different geographic, but it was in the mid to upper-mid range for salaries offered in the area for this position. I did not negotiate, though I felt that there was an opportunity to, because with the request of a higher salary with be a greater demand from the position to include higher levels of stress and increased responsibilities. Personally, I didn't move to La Jolla for increased levels of stress and I am happy with my choice.

    Research Technician I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (San Diego, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was done over skype as I was still working in Europe. We had 3 interviews total where I described my past experience, goals.
    They also went into what moving to San Diego would entail (you need a car, there's an extensive Visa application process..) I'm guessing it's a big deterrent for a lot of their applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you expect your salary to be, considering we do not offer relocation packages?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (San Diego, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I have to mention that it's a highly lab-to-lab dependent process so my experience can't speak for others. Mine is pretty pleasant and it took about less than four weeks from application to getting the offer.

    • Mostly just scientific questions and not really unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much to negotiate as the package for postdoc is pretty fixed.
