    Interview

    Received an interview invitation email, then answered pre-determined questions over a program similar to Skype. Finally had a conference phone call with the research group, don't remember if this was before or after the offer. I think they had pretty much decided on me by that point.

    Visiting Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ORAU in February 2012.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online and had a phone interview with the research group within a week. The rest of the process was quite a bit longer, in large part because of the background clearance. I expected it to begin much sooner (interviewed beginning of February) but the process did not start until July. Everything was straightforward, however, and all parties were easy to communicate with.

    Interview

    Nothing about your actual knowledge, skills, abilities or any qualifications. Interview is an hour and a half long and is nothing but behavioral questions so that they can twist your answers to suit them. It's about interpretation, - right?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ORAU (Oak Ridge, TN).

    Interview

    It's a joke. Managers not skilled in the process and leaves the selection process up to employees not qualified to make the selection. The company is losing out on getting talent but allowing those employees to make the decisions. They are not skilled in interviewing, recruiting, or selecting highly qualified individuals. The managers feel threatened.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ORAU (Oak Ridge, TN) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Three phone and one in person interview. Over a month and have not heard back. Not sure if they are still conducting a background check or what. Should not be that much in anyone's background that would take over 3 months. It would be nice to receive a letter, email or call saying either way. It is understandable that this takes time to go through the process and I am not complaining. It is just frustrating when you are very interested in the job and not wanting to take another job if there is a possibility.
