    Lab Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfield, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ORISE (Fairfield, OH) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I was told about the administrative/management position opening by a friend. After we discussed my capabilities and what was required, my friend told his supervisor(who was hiring) that I was interested. I came to meet the supervisor, and we discussed the responsibilities. It was informal and no technical questions were asked. I was asked if I'd like to continue working in the government sector for a while if hired. After the interview, I was asked to apply to ORISE through their website, which involved uploading my resume, university coursework and grades, and a few other odds and ends. I had to get three people to visit the website and act as referrals for me - I don't know the details of what they were asked. After about 6 weeks, I was finally hired. From what I've seen, the hiring process through ORISE doesn't always take this long; most of the time it takes 2-4 weeks.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. I told the person interviewing me for the position what I had made previously, and he tried to stay close to that. After a year, my contract was renewed, and I got a salary bump.

    Interview

    None really, just applied. No interview. Do ask cover letter. Straightforward. Need 30 ch ar ac te rs. But didn't really know where will end up or how ended up where I did

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were asked of me but they do require a cover letter. Also there can be separate groups hiring you, even though accepted had to apply again on a different site for formality, can be a bit messy on their end.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Standard interview process varies depending on assignment. May ask technical question and a report back to Orise is required at the end of assignment. People where friendly but ORISE rep was not as helpful as would have hoped.
