    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lawrence Berkeley Lab (Berkeley, CA).

    Interview

    One hour, multiple persons, and from different depts and agencies. Casual, respectful. No one seemed to lead interview, introductions etc however. No follow up (calls/emails) answered, and it seemed as if the position was never filled.

    Interview Questions

    • A number of questions related to what would I have done, in a real situation experience in the position.   1 Answer
