    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City of Houston (Houston, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through the City of Houston, and was then contacted about a month later for an inperson interview at the lab. I met with the supervisor of the lab and two others. The interview process was pretty quick. I just interview and am still waiting to hear back.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself and why you chose microbiology?   Answer Question
    • Situation questions such as- what would you do if you did not get along with someone in your lab? What would you do if your controls were expired?   Answer Question
