Mentors are great at helping to guide you through projects.
The lab places a high emphasis on personal development (for example, you can skip work sometimes to go to lectures at the lab)
Salaries are competitive
The environment around Los Alamos is beautiful
It feels nice to work at a place where you feel you can make an impact
Not really a con of the lab, but temporary housing can be a bit hard to find in and around Los Alamos if you’re an intern. The lab does a nice job trying to help you find some though
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, NM) in October 2018.
I was contacted by a member of the prospective team and we scheduled a phone interview with the team. They called on time and we had a good interview for approximately 45 minutes. Questions were mixed technical and personal, but process was fairly relaxed.
