    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PNNL.

    Interview

    First one is like resume screening and second one is Technical interview over skype. It was good.
    It was not hard but felt like questions were similar. If the spouse works for the same company, it would be an additional advantage.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview was on the technology that I put in my resume.   Answer Question
