    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (Albuquerque, NM) in July 2015.

    Interview

    After weeks of negotiating (which was convoluted and dishonest on their part especially when it came to my payment), I had a sit down with their new CFO David Byrd. He berates you, bullies you, and makes faces at you when you speak. He tries to make you feel as though you are of such low importance you had better take whatever he gives you. Anything you say in protest is disregarded and even laughed at. It was the most unprofessional behavior I've ever experienced in an interview.

    Negotiation

    Don't get your hopes up in negotiating with these people. They are not interested in fairness.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (Albuquerque, NM) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Received a phone interview which was ~15mins long. The interview was short and to the point and no stupid questions were asked. I went out for a face-to-face interview a couple of weeks later. This interview lasted the whole day and I talked to multiple people in various roles. I was able to get a good sense of the working environment and the day-to-day processes of the company. The PI I was interviewing for was not present at the other interviews, so I did not feel they were being dishonest in their assessment of the company.
