    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Charles River Laboratories.

    Interview

    Primarily had a 30 minute phone interview then was asked to come for an in-person interview. The in-person interview took the whole day where I met with various people in the company and gave a 30 minute presentation on my previous research experiences.
