    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Stowers Institute For Medical Research (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    Description of the job during the interview did not match the work required to perform. In fact there was no "or as required" during any part of the interview until my first disciplinary action.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions weren't the problem. Oversight of compliance was a bit harsh and often rude going behind my back to speak to supervision rather than bringing the issue directly to me. Definitely a case of the have and have not's.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Hourly for specific period of time but little opportunity for advancement.
