    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Argonne National Laboratory (Lemont, IL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    It was thorough, but the environment was very comfortable. They asked very relevant questions that pertained to the job, but I was well qualified which made the questions easy to answer.
