    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Argonne National Laboratory.


    In person face to face interview - first with supervisor, then with potential colleagues. After meeting with each person individually, I gave a presentation and then fielded questions from the group. The process took all day.
