In the 2018 Los Alamos Giving Campaign, 1,716 Laboratory employees have pledged more money than ever before. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQgap
We have just launched our Veteran and Transitioned Military skills translator website. We are thrilled to be able to provide a tool that will assist individuals in matching their tremendous skills with career opportunities. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQuhf
We believe diversity fuels our innovative, agile, and principled workforce that is essential to solving problems of global importance. The practice of inclusion & diversity are key to providing a work environment where our talented employees can thrive. We invite you to visit our website to learn more about the vibrant diversity programs at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
We proudly support veterans, transitioning military, and military reservists of the U.S. armed forces as they pursue a career with the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Our engaged and responsive employee resource group and Office of Diveristy guide individuals through the transition from military to civilian employment.
We conduct regular outreach in our local and national veteran community, making sure interested candidates know their options at the Lab. We are seeking mission oriented individuals and we thrive when great employees have found a sense of mission in working with us.
The Lab maintains an onsite clinic that is available to all employees and provides comprehensive services and programs to promote employee physical and mental wellness.
Employees at the Lab enjoy complete access to a 17,000 square foot fitness facility equipped with weight rooms, an aerobics room with dynamic classes, cycling and circuit training. Additionally, walkers and runners can enjoy various outdoor trails and a 1/8 mile outdoor track.
Food services at various locations across the Laboratory complex offer a wide variety of fresh food choices for breakfast and lunch.
All year long, Northern New Mexico provides incredible opportunities for outdoor and extreme sports enthusiasts. Consider the various options our beautiful state offers any adventure seekers.
Eligible employees may be reimbursed for the cost of tuition, fees and books related to courses taken through appropriately accredited institutions.
Dependents of full-time Lab employees are eligible to enroll as students at any of the University of California (UC) campuses and use resident classification for tuition purposes.
The Lab provides online resources, onsite and facilitated classroom training, and access to industry-provided developmental opportunities for the continued professional development of all employees.
We know flexibility is the key to establishing a work-life balance. That is why the Lab offers a variety of work schedules. The most popular work schedule is the 9/80 schedule, which provides a Friday off every other week.
Because the Laboratory is a vibrant community of individuals and thought, there are several different leave options, with or without pay, to accommodate the needs of employees and Laboratory programs.
The Laboratory’s greatest strength is in our multidisciplinary capabilities. Los Alamos maintains broad science, technology, and engineering (ST&E) capabilities across multiple disciplines, leveraged to meet the Laboratory’s diverse national security missions.
Our four strategic cross-Laboratory "Science Pillars" allow us to draw on capabilities across the Lab to accomplish our missions. Each Science Pillar covers a principal theme with scientific goals fundamental to building and investing in our science, technology, and engineering expertise:
Information, Science, and Technology
Materials for the Future
Nuclear and Particle Futures
Science of Signatures
I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time
Great organization, good co workers and holiday pay.
Remote location, high cost of living
Advice to Management
Continue to work towards continual improvement
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, NM).
I had an introductory phone call with the team lead, where he asked me about myself and told me about the research group and explained the hiring process a bit. I was then flown out to visit LANL. During my visit, I was interviewed by the team lead in person, where I was asked about my interests and experience. I then gave a 50 min presentation (I just tweaked my PhD dissertation slightly) for approximately 20 of the research scientists in the branch. My presentation was followed by a lab tour, where I spent approximately 20 mins with each team member, as they showed me their non-classified work. Finally, I interviewed with the branch lead, who again asked me about my previous work and about what sort of areas I would be interested in researching there at the lab.
Note 1: I didn't really get any typical interview questions like, "explain a situation where you had to deal with a difficult team member", or "what is one of your weaknesses".
Note 2: my visit/interview did take about 9 hours, which was physically tiring.
