I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (More than a year)
The Livermore lab is the greatest place I have ever worked in my 40-year working career. The Livermore lab is known as the “Smartest square mile on Earth”. Great salary, benefits, people, management and work life balance with their alternative work schedule. The site 200/campus is beautiful. I have only worked at the Lab for 1 year and my only regret is that I didn’t start working here 20 years ago.
I work on the 8th Wonder of the World, the National Ignition Facility (NIF). The National Ignition Facility is the world’s largest and most energetic laser system. Continued NIF experiments will one day lead to Fusion.
The diversified research the Livermore Lab does is world class, second to none. The Lab’s past, present and future research is so vital to our country and our national defense. As a veteran I am proud to serve my county once again, this time as a civilian.
Communing from the Central Valley to the Lab takes on average 50-60 minutes, to a from work.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work. Thank you for all your support and encouragement.
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in June 2019.
Interview lasts from 8 am to 2:30 pm with a break for lunch. The lunch break includes a brief tour of the lab. Interview begins with overview of the department and programs. Next, you will present to a group of engineers (approx 15-20) on an engineering project. The presentation is the most critical part of the interview so following the prompt is key. All attendees at the presentation will have a say in your hiring. After you will interview with several small groups of 2 to 3 people before and after the lunch. Finally, the hiring manager meets with you to discuss hiring logistics and any last questions.
