    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at EMSL Analytical (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Interviewer was more than fifteen minutes late to conduct the interview - no apology or explanation, they just hadn't gotten to work yet that day. So that was bizarre. Persons conducting the interview had no scientific background and didn't seem to know what the position entailed or how to evaluate technical skills or education for lab positions. It was clear the company has failed to adequately staff the lab and employees were explicitly admitted to be overworked.
    Benefits described were abysmal- no sick days, and paid time off maxes - for ever - at 15 days/year after three years. Hiring is also contingent on signing a 2 year non compete, so good luck finding another job.
    Majority of interview was questions about how long I would be in the area (i.e. Are you going to work here for several years?) which is fine but it went on and on. For example the interviewer probed about where I was from and if I was homesick and even how stable my partner's job is... it was very strange. They seem terrified that they might waste training on some one who won't commit their life to the company.
