    Interview

    3 15-30 minute interviews with 3 different people. There were 2 positions open so 2 of the interviewers were the direct managers for those 2 roles, and the 3rd was the laboratory manager. Each interview was one at a time as opposed to a panel style. Then there was a tour of the labs and facility.
