    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Atlanta, GA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume by referral and was asked to interview tow weeks later. They asked me questions about my resume only. I then filled the time by asking questions. I met with three people. One who I'd work under and someone in the lab escorted me out.
