    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Core Laboratories.

    Interview

    The on-site manager was awesome. Interview consisted of a face to face interview that went over personality type questions as well as questions about laboratory experience. Was offered a tour around the facility where we went over what the job required.

    When the recruiter called to offer the position, he informed me that it was a temp position with no benefits. Something of which i was not told at anytime before the offer. Recruiter was very pushy and made it clear that there was absolutely no negotiation on pay.
