    Laser Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The entire interview was a power trip for the manager in charge. Passive aggressive and a no it all. It was hard to relax and present the best me that I could because of this. The interview was a joke, the panel of 2 people talked more about themselves being so good at the laser thing that it disgusted me.
