    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Flew me in to town for the interview. Paid for hotel and rental car. Interview process was nice and easy. About an hour long worth of questions and discussion. Nice people, clean offices, and hospital interviewers. Never felt uncomfortable or pressured during the interview process.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Got email from hiring manager saying they would call me for interview. Months passed until they finally called and scheduled. Paid for trip and stay. Spent one day interviewing with everyone from the group all the way up to SRNL manager. Relatively easy and laid back atmosphere. No hard interview questions like "how would you describe the color yellow to a blind person?"or silly things like that. Left having the feeling I was already hired. Got a call two days after with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing special, felt more like they were trying to figure out my personality and interests instead of how capable I was.   1 Answer

    Associate Eng Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.

    Interview

    Received phone call after applying (months later) for on-site interview. Travel was arranged for me. Dinner the night before interview with an engineer then interview the next morning, including tour of Site. Received an offer about a month or so later. Overall, great experience. Only negative is the amount of time it takes for anything to get done.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult. They want to see if you're a person they want to work with on a daily basis, not how many formulas you remembered from school.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate. Offer was fair, and I'm not sure if there is much negotiation allowed with these positions.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (Aiken, SC) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Received call after 8 months of submitting online application. 30 minute phone interview. One week after phone interview received email about on-site interview. Airfare, car rental and 1 day hotel paid by SRNS. Was taken out to dinner the night before interview by senior engineer. Day of interview met with host and drove around site for about 45 minutes to get the know the area. The interview consisted of a 3 person panel (only engineers, no HR rep) and took about 45 minutes. Final step is lunch at the facility.

    After not hearing anything after 3 weeks, called and left voice mail. Within an hour of the call, received generic email saying "Thank you but no thank you".
