    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute.

    Interview

    The interview process was very thorough. I first had a phone interview. Then I was called in for a group interview. My references were thoroughly questioned as well and told me they felt like they were being interviewed. I consider this a positive thing though. I think interviewers should really try to find a good match for each position and ask a lot of questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a lot of "HR type questions" that did not really pertain to specific skills. A lot of "what-if", character questions.   1 Answer
